Quote from bondgrll:Hi, has anyone here taken the extended version of Xanax and tapered off well? I've been taking 1 MG every morning for 8-10 weeks while I increase the amount of Prozac. In about 10 days I will be at the recommended Prozac dose and was wondering how to start coming off of the Xanax XR. By the way, I am so med sensitive that it took me this long just to get the 5MG of Prozac with no side effects. I had started this regimine for panic anxiety after the birth of my third child. Thanks for your responses.
How is your anxiety/panic??? Is it completely gone? I too am so med sensitive that I take 2 mg of Lexapro and when I took prozac it was 3 mg tops. Our livers must be missing that enzyme that breaks down meds........Anyway, are you sure you are ready to taper off Xanax
Xr? My guess is you will taken down to the .05 then weaned from there. I ahve heard of people taking it everyother day, then every third ect until they are off.............I will be curious what your Doctor does. Xr version is NOT supposed to be as adictive as it is SLOWLY released unlike the regular.
BEST OF LUCK and I Wish YOU HAPPY DAYS! :angel:
