If you are getting Xanax off the street because you don't have a doctor, where are you going to get phenytoin? How much Xanax are you taking? Why did you start taking Xanax? Did you have seizures before you started taking Xanax?
I do think that you must be taking a sizable amount if not taking it causes seizures. There must be a county funded community health department in your area. I don't know where you live to be able to help with resources. Some Behavioral Centers may be able to refer you to an appropriate agency. Seems you need more help than I can give. There are ways to slowly taper off of Xanax, have you considered that?
Try giving more information so they someone on this site can give you more help. But if all else fails, go to your nearest ER for help.

If you go to the hospital, they might give you phenytoin, but they also can refer you to the appropriate mental health care. I have the feeling if you get the depression treated appropriately you can stay off the xanax, which isn't for depression in the first place.
