    Re: Hooked on Xanax

    48 days later usage today .25 at 3:00 pm and probably .25 at bed time. I still haven't gone 1 day without since started tapering. I can go until late afternoon then get restless, irritable thats when I take .25 and bam I feel great. I don't know how to get past this point to stop. Maybe tomorrow the first clean day

    Re: Hooked on Xanax

    Hi xanland, If i was still taking 0.5/24 hours if i were you i would try 0.25/24hours first by taking 0.125 when i felt anxiety & then if at night i needed to take it taking another 0.125 would still be keeping within 0.25/ day. You have done truly remarkable considering all the years that you were prescribed it! I think feel more normal when i take it also but i know thats not really true because shortly after i feel sleepy, tired, foggy.

    Re: Hooked on Xanax

    Thank you for the reply, I will try and cut to .125 its hard. I am thinking if I didn't have anymore supply at this point I probable could get past the restless spot with a beer instead or 2 beers I would be fine. Make sense ?

    thank you

    Re: Hooked on Xanax

    Hi xan, If i just get distracted by a movie, phone call, cooking, surfing net, reading or hot bath usually pain or anxiety gets better or goes away. I dont know about beer helping bc i dont drink, i hate the taste! If the xanax is weaned so low that there is not much chance of withdrawal anxiety, do you know whats causing the restlessness?

    Re: Hooked on Xanax

    Hi xan, Thats really great! At the beginning you were taking 1mg or somedays 1.5mg, right? 0.125 is 1/8 of your previous 1mg in 48+ days, you are really close!
