and i'm wondering if the xanax im using to help ease the anxiety of withdrawal is going to be the next demon im fighting. I am prescribed xanax, but only as of about two month ago... and in that time, I've gone from the 2mg my doctor put me on to taking anywhere from six to eight a day.. how quickly can i taper off these and should I wait until i have a few days of the sub detox behind me to start... and how much of a habit could i have developed in this time. The first month I took exactly as prescribed after that I started my detox with the subs.. but the less sub i took the more xanax I took. Any help would be greatly apppreciated.
