I've started this thing 12 times and I sound so bitchy and I truly don't mean to, I can't imagine what they are giving them to you for that stopping them would send you to the ER. Some of us are taking anywhere from 10 to 30 (10mg) a day, now that you definitely pay a price for I don't know of many who have ended up in the ER because of it. Now there are times when death would be a welcome alternative(mild exageration) but not far from the truth.
I agree with Windysan unless there are some underlying problems that we don't understand, I'd trash whats left instead of dragging it out. There shouldn't be but maybe a couple of days of moderate discomfort, now if you went to the ER coldturkeying from xanax I think you said that I can understand. WD'ing from benzos can put you in the hospital or worse,opiate WD is mostly severe discomfort but manageable at home with OTC stuff.
If I came off snotty didn't mean to this is just the way I see it and I've been taking them for the better part of 20yrs, and had a 10 year bout with valium......wouldn't want to do that again for nothing. Best of luck to you in whichever way you choose to go.
