I have been prescribed xanax for five years for anxiety, but a a very low dose .25. Primarily, my drug was Buspar which wroked great and I was anxiety free until recently. Last year I began to take about .5 per night to sleep. About four months ago, began to wake up with severe shaking, nervousness, etc. I have lived through hell these four months. I think I have a xanaz withdrawal problem, although my doctor has increased my dosage to 1 -1.5 mg per day. He says my dose is so low, withdrawl this severe is unlikely. I went through alcohol withdrawl 14 years ago and this feels exactly like that, but I beleive the duration of the dosage and not the amount has created addiction and withdrawal. Help!
