Default Xanax

My doctor gave me Xanax and Zoloft yesterday. I have taken Zoloft before, but in my mislead idea that I would be better, I weaned it off, and I was okay for a few months, but now I am bad. Even worse than before maybe. I am also getting panic attacks now, which I didn't before, so I told my doctor this, and he told me to take 3 Xanax every day. However, some years ago I got Xanax against being unable to sleep, and I love how they make me sleep, but now I am wondering how I can take these in the morning and still 'function' at work?
Can I try or will I be a zombie?
I should mention that my doctor's English skills are very limited, and I am not well versed in the country's language. So any conversation here is not so easy.

I am taking Zoloft however my doctor wouldn't prescribe Xanax (I asked because a friend recommended it to me I have actually never taken Xanax). My doctor said it could be addicting (kind of like taking a drink). I am an alcoholic trying to stop drinking and I didn't want to trade one addiction for another. I can't really offer much advice on how it will affect you. My brother takes Xanax and they make him tired so if you have to work I personally wouldn't recommend it. I wish you the best of luck.

Yeah Xanax can be addictive..and after a while you need to take a higher dosage so that it can work.. Which isnt good...I was taking Xanax for years but my new doc wanted me to go off them.. so I did. What I would do is just follow what your doc tells you. If you have issues with them..let him/her know...
