... day 4 without them and am feeling major W/D symptoms. The worst being, no sleep, tremors and a over all sense of "fuzzy". How long will this last? I'm having trouble even typing this. This is horrible, but I'm not going looking on the streets for some. I just want to be able to make it til Wednesday when I can get my refill and then head to the drs office and work out some kind of plan to get off of them. But I'm already panicked about having a seizure. I read that is symptom as well.

Hello bsont. I understand how it might be for you, because I was once also on xanax. You might want to get a hold of your doctor and explain whats going on. Stopping xanax abruptly is not advised. Benzodiazepines require a taper. I understand you've shorted yourself. Best I can suggest is to get your doctor to call in a new perscription. That way, you'll have a new supply. But, explain to your doctor, and she/he know how the benzodiazepines work, how it can be having to stop it abruptly. I hope you're well, best to you,
