Welcome back to icliniq.com.
I am sorry I did not address that. Let me clarify. If there is a plan to taper the doses, then I do not see much of a benefit in changing the dosing schedule to 0.25 mg three times a day. If we consider the pharmacokinetics of Xanax, its elimination half-life is around 10 to 11 hours. Even after regular intake, the effects tend to wean off about five hours after the last dose. So, if with the twice-a-day dose, your anxiety is under control, then I think that starting an afternoon dose is not a good idea because there is no requirement of the drug at that time. Instead, I would suggest reducing the evening dose to 0.25 mg, while keeping the morning strength unchanged at 0.25 mg. If you suffer any issues on reducing the evening dose, then you can take half of the 0.25 mg tablet on an SOS basis in the evening. This is a relatively easier tapering method. Also, since you are on 0.75 mg dose per day, I do not think reducing the doses would cause many difficulties. I hope this helps. Take care.
