I was on xanax for 10yrs, this has been 15 yrs ago. I found a doc that would cut my xanax down every so often and keept doing this til I was off and clean. He did not put me on another med to come off this. The anxiety and panic was there but I did it and was a ble to fuction. Im back on xanax after 15 yrs but have some problems that caused me to go back on it. Find a doc and tell them what happened and you want weened off it. Please keep me updated. I will friend you.

Please do not just stop this medication cold turkey as in can cause seizures. You need to taper off it over time. To read more about withdrawal from benzodiazepines like xanax try:
Another helpful website might be benzobuddies.com. It is a support group specifically for people going through the throws of withdrawal.
You also have the option of finding another doctor to prescribe your medication. If so, maybe you can get your present doc to refer you to a new doc.
