Are you sure? Floating, skin burning, shaking, vibrating, strange sensations when walking, dr (world looks like a dream), nausea, etc., etc. for months on end. The first month I could take almost no stimumation without having to do breathing excercises. Why do you want off this drug?? Many get off easier but I`d say 30 to 50 % do not. Unless you are quite ill on the drug getting off simply is not worth it, unless you can afford to have your life turned upside down for a year or maybe a multiple of them, and even then, fulll recovery is not guaranteed. You may consider switcvhing to klonopin or valium, long acting benzos, too many ups and downs with xanax. If you are only wanting off because your doc is trying to push you off (common) then find a new doc. They often do that to covery their behinds, not because they care about you. And when hell break loose, naturally, they will claim it is all in your head and not drug withdrawal. You asked, there it is....
