1 Xanax = 3 days of withdrawl symptoms?!?!

I took .25 Xanax a few nights ago, and for the next few days, I noticed that my anxiety was soooo much worse.

I had also noticed this when I took a Xanax 2 weeks ago. My anxiety was much worse for 3 days. I even broke out in hives during those 3 days.

I know I'm sensitive to medication, but can this be??? Has anybody else had withdrawl symptoms after a single small dose of Xanax?

Hi Junior,

I took Xanax for years and never had a problem with it at all.
I know some people do become dependent on or tolorant to it quickly, but I've never heard of it happening after only one pill....that doesn't mean that it couldn't, I just never heard of it happening that fast.

You also mention breaking out in hives, there is always the possibility that you're allergic to it.
If I where you I'd check with your Doctor or your local Pharmacy before taking anymore.

I didn't take any since the last one last weekend. It doesn't seem to do anything to relieve any of my symptoms. Just makes me feel bad for 3 days. It may be in my head, but I think I'll try something else. After all, I was using them as sleeping pills, but they didn't help for that.

your dose was small and shouldnt have much effect on you

your tablets may be spoiled by hot storage or even counterfiet with no active ingredient at all

Re: 1 Xanax = 3 days of withdrawl symptoms?!?!

Hey, Xanax was given to me for anxiety, and I took it for a week straight before bed. When I tried to sleep without it, I had anxiety even worse and I couldn't sleep. It took me about 3-4 nights to get back used to sleeping without the help.
I develpoed a strong need for it in only a week, so I know how you feel. What I do now is leave 1 pill next to my bed, so I know it is there (calms my anxiety) but I don't take it. I noticed that when my mind knows the Xanax is near-by, I am more relaxed and don't suffer from anxiety as bad as before.....just a suggestion

I highly doubt that one small dose would make you feel bad for 3 days...but if it was doctor prescribed just give him a call and ask what he thinks...if you don't like it for pete's sake don't take it.
I'm on 3mgs of xanax a day and I really don't feel addicted, but my doc and I agree I might be on it for life...
I also don't think I would be able to sleep without it.
