Re: xanax withdrawal

I sure hope you're tapering and not cold turkey...that can be very dangerous. why were you on xanax?

Re: xanax withdrawal

i was put on xanax when my husband was killed to calm me down i did not know it was a short term med. my doc kept me on it. i decided to stop on my own. i did a 3 week taper and have been off it since april 16th. i am lucky and have just a few mild wd symptoms.
i was most worried about seizures so i did not ct i did 3 cuts
0.75 to 0.37 for 1 week
0.37 to 0.25 for 1 week
0.25 to .125
then stopped after being on .125 for 7 days

Re: xanax withdrawal

Sounds like you did it correctly. I am so glad you're ogg those things. Son was addicted, pleasure taking them, for recreation....they are so addictive and so dangerous...............you took them for good reason, just should have been short term. Good luck!!!
