Discussions that mention xanax

Addiction & Recovery board

So today is day 1 of my taper, as stated in my other thread, but when will I start having the diahrea or will I? I'm just wondering because I work and I want to be ready for it, if you know what I mean... Also, do you think I'll have trouble sleeping tonight? I'm just not sure what to expect as far a withdrawal symptoms setting in and when since I'm doing the taper.

One other question and if anyone can answer this I'd really like to know...I have Xanax and I read about people taking Xanax to help through the withdrawals, but what part of it does it help with? What does it do for you? I'm guessing maybe the anxiety that comes with the craving?

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated! I just know that I feel so weird, like my head is empty. Does that make sense??
