Hello Val

Before beginning any form of tapering,please consult you primary care physician,as they can give you a physical and order lab specimens.
They are aware of your history and are best suited to offer you advice.

There are plenty tapering responses on this board;please feel free to browse around.

Respectfully
Phoenix

Re: Xanax Help Please

Hi Val. I have been on a similar dose of Xanax for a similar amount of time. I used a variety of benzos to come off the xanax & have settled on Valium with the intention to get off that as well. I think that if you are not feeling terrible pressure from the withdrawal you should perhaps ride along with it? Xanax is hard to come off, & if you're not climbing the walls you are doing well & I encourage you to keep it up... Eventually you may escape all benzos & get back to your old self! That's my plan too. Both of us have not been huge dose users - its possible! Getting off Xanax is a great start & perhaps getting using the klonopin for a briefer period can be a real possibility for you... Good luck & get outside in the garden or sunshine each day, I find this helps elevate my mood. If only I did it everyday!! I wish

Re: Xanax Help Please

hi Val I was on Xanax 2mg 3x a day thats a HEAVY dose anywho..I wanted off so I saw another psych who tapered me off with Klonopin (Clanozapam) 1mg 3x a day I do admit i felt horrible for 2 weeks. After the tapering started after the 2nd week (with help from my dr) I felt much better I was told by him that Xanax is a strong benzo and Knonopin is much smoother and it was now i am .5 2x a day and will be completely off by Dec.
