I was wondering how dangerous it is to take 1mg

Patient

Q: I was wondering how dangerous it is to take 1mg of xanax a day while your pregnant. I have an extreme addiction to it and I'm afraid that if I just stop it will put my body and unborn baby into stress. I've done a lot of research online but I haven't found any real answers just a bunch of pregnancy threads. Most saying that their doctors said it was okay to take 1mg a day. But I haven't seen anything from an actual doctor. I know I Dont need a lot to make myself feel better, its just that without I have severe anxiety attacks and get really sick from withdrawals. A doctor won't ever prescribe me the medication because they don't think I need it but I know for a fact that I do. I don't just take it for fun. I take it because it helps me function normally. So what do I do?
