I have taken 4 .25 Xanax (alprazolam) over the course of the day as my anxiety has been high. This won't make me overdose right?

In brief: Right? Wrong!

This is a very high dose.
How many mgs do you normally take daily? If you have high tolerance for drug, you may be ok. But you are really playing with fire. Talk with prescriber re drug. Seeing a psychologist for tx along with drug tx appears to be a safer way to handle extreme anxiety. Take good care of yourself.
