I am on Xanax also, and my internist actually perscribed it to me. I also see a therapist which helps out a lot. I only took .25mg twice a day when anxiety was really bad, but now I take it only when I need it.
I think Dr's are afraid of prescibing it because it can be addictive and can also be hard to come down from when you are taking high dosages. I did try to do .5mg and would have rebound anxiety after it wore off.
Everyone is different though and like the pervious poster said don't drive when you first go on it until you see how you react. I can drive on .25mg and .5mg, but they gave me 2mg when I was in the hospital and it was like being happy-drunk and there was no way I could drive.

It doesn't hurt to at least ask for it. Its nice to carry around a little bit of insurance for those just in case times.
