I didn't get any response to my last post, I hope that someone will answer this time.

I am on high BP meds as well as Xanax for anxiety. I have been gradually cutting back on the Xanax as I don't want to take this addictive drug any longer. This is with a doctor's care. My problem is now that I have cut back to half of the Xanax dosage, but my BP is getting way to high now. I will tell my doctor this, but just had an appointment last week and really can't spend the money on another doctor visit so soon. MY question is, will I need to go back on the full dosage of Xanax or would a change in BP meds help??

If there is a medical person reading this I would appreciate your answer until I can get to the doctor.
