    Her doctor should be able to help her to wean off them. Suggest that she talk with him about that.

    Hello PeeWee716 and welcome.

    "I just don't know what the right thing to do is, she has been on these meds for 7 years and she is a totally different person i can tell when the Xanax wears off and she starts getting anxious ease someone help"

    If she can agree,to not feeling "energetic," maybe the prescribing physician can adjust her medication dosages.

    One would be surprised how much of a difference it can make.


    Respectfully
