Xanax is a mild benzo and .5 mg is the standard dose. It usually takes effect about 20 minutes after you take it (possibly longer on a full stomach) and will last about 8 hours.
Beta Blockers are good for "stage fright" as they block the physical responses to adrenaline, however, they won't calm your mind like a benzo will. So, I'd say experiment with the Xanax and find a dose that works for you. Then take that dose about 45 minutes or so before your presentation.
JOE BIDEN 2006: In Delaware the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking!
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."
