You would be best to face the music (and this problem) with the help of a Dr. Withdrawal from Xanax, Valium and Atavan can be lengthy and ugly. A Dr. can help you ease out of this with minimum discomfort, on your own you can expect everything from insomnia, cold sweats, looney thoughts, crawling skin, restless legs and more. Take if from someone who did it the wrong way, do this the right way. Ask for professional medical help.

I agree with balbanese it is very difficult to get off the xanax by yourself it can be done but it is very uncomfortable without a physician's help as well as strong support from family and friends. You can experience all kind of symptoms as balbanese has mentioned, in addition you can experience an increase in anxiety and depression... a very bad combination when your resistance is low. Please don't set yourself up to fail... seek the help you need to be successful.
