Re: xanax withdrawals

Pine, I think with Xanax you need a Dr's supervision. I was given them when my mother passed away for anxiety attacks and I didn't take them everyday at first, but soon I was. When I went ct I had all kinds of wd's symtoms, I couldn't sleep, my speech was affected, nausea, crawly feelings in my legs, nervous and the wd's to me were worse than lorcet wd's, which I have been clean for months from. I later found out benzo wd's are alot worse and can be dangerous for you than pain pills. I had a bad experience with them, but maybe it won't be so bad for you, anyway be careful doing this. Your in my prayers and I'm sending love to you. Stay on the boards, there alot of good people on here that knows more than I do and will give all kinds of help and support. I didn't take the xanax for too long, but it sure learned me a lesson about them, I wished I learned a lesson about lorcets years ago, as I was hooked for over 10yrs, but thank God I'm clean now. Good luck. LOL, Fiesty

Re: xanax withdrawals

I'm working on Dex abuse right now but once that's done, I intend to address the Xanax problem. Please, please don't just stop the Xanax. It can cause real problems for you. Talk to your Dr. and be truthful. Hopefully, he won't be a jerk like one I had but will help you thru this. If you are afraid to do that, you must taper down slowly. I stayed awake for 4 nights and 5 days in shear misery from running out of Xanax and thought I was going to die. Seek help and keep posting for support.
