    Hello. From my experience since it has been 6 hours it won't hurt you at all. I have to take sleeping pills every night to help me sleep and I always wait 4-5 hours before taking a xanax if I have an attack. So your fine. Hope this helps.

    Good morning , I'm sorry you're through that I myself have been up all night dealing with an attack , i had to go to the hospital last Friday and they also gave me Xanax .5mg , they claim is the only thing that works I don't agree I've heard so many bad stories about it the main thing is it can make your anxiety and panic attacks worse. I was taking Vistrial before and it worked very well I would only take it when I was having one or felt one coming on but it's hard for me to get that medicine because they say I need to see psychiatrist but when you don't have health insurance and can't afford it it's even more of a issue. But please and I mean please be careful with that Xanax , I got something over the counter at a local drug store CVS pharmacy I don't know where you live but check any store the dietary supplement says take one before a meal and you can take another one later that day if you need to the box says Anxiety Reducer it is all natural it has SENSORIL 125mg in it , you can search it if you like but when I did my research on it , it says it didn't have any side effects to me that's a plus it helps me when I don't have my other medicine so until I can get it again this is what I take... Good luck and Most of all God bless You... Please keep in touch.

    You will be fine to take another dosage of xanax after waiting 6 hours. Specially since your on such a low dose. Anyways never heard of taking passion flower for anxiety. Does that really help?
