Is that allowed in psychiatry? My doc said to take the Ativan 1mg four times a day as a standard and take the Xanax .5mg as a rescue medication. But I'm just wanting to make sure, is this safe?

Not a doctor, but so long as your doctor is aware of all the substances you are taking (supplements, prescriptions, anything illegal, etc) then his or her judgment should be in your best interests.

FWIW I am on Prozac, Pristiq and Strattera which I have been told by another psychiatrist is an odd combo -- but it seems to work. Plus Klonopin.

HTH

Hey! that's Ang! :) I'm actually kind of looking forward to the movie. MNS does make a good film now and then.
