Waiting 7 weeks for an answer is not even cool come on people we are suppose to be here to help. Anyway I think I have a solution to your problem tell your doc. you would like to start tapering off the xanax and you need their help honestly they should not have a problem with this since they really don't like prescibing xanax to begin with. So you take 2mg try the 1mg and then try 0mg and see how this goes I never had a problem quitting i just stopped no withdraws nothing and I took like 12mg a day or more it really should not be that bad but our body's are all made different hope this helped you some good luck to you.

I was prescribed Xanax for about 20 years. I cut my dosage in half every 7-10 days, taking a prn dose when needed. I was off in 6 weeks. I had 90 .5mg tablets that I hung onto as a security blanket for about 6 months when I tossed them out.
I was on 1mg t.i.d. (3mg daily) when I started titrating off.
