    A journey from Xanax

    I have several posts on this site in relation to burning skin sensations I started having over a week ago. I am being tested for everything and so far all the results are normal. I have been on xanax daily for close to six years as I cannot tolerate SSRI's. I never cured my panic/anxiety disorder and I also suffer from chronic prostatitis but have been successful in treating this through lifestyle change. I started reducing my xanax in an attempt to rid myself of drugs. At my peak I was taking about 1.5mg a day and now am under .5mg a day, only .125mg yesterday. I have been less then .5mg for over a year. My doctor put me on BuSpar in hopes to control the anxiety, and it was working until after seven days the burning started and he told me to cease all medication, besides the xanax. I did and am still having the sensation, which I have done tons of research on, obviously a neuro issue, Not sure if it was the BuSpar or the xanax tapering, or a combination of them both. All I know is I started Neurontin last night, to help in the xanax WD. I have read every post online in regards to Benzo WD, recovery, burning, neuropathy, allydonia, paresthesia, and the like. I was tossing and turning, weird dreams, but not too bad considering what ssri's do. Anyway I wanted to document my recovery from the Benzo, in hopes to provide guidance for others, as most people never finish out their threads, they just get better or die, but we never know and are left wondering, reading posts from the past and wishing we knew how it turned out. So today I am feeling a little tired, the burning is still prevalent, but I have only been on the neurontin for 10 hours, 1 300 mg capsule. Havent had a xanax in 24 hours. No anxiety really just the burning and dizziness. I will keep posting. Please feel free to chime in with any relevant information and I hope that we can share in our experiences to get better and to heal.

    Good luck friends
