Why would you want to do such a thing? Have your Dr. help you do this correctly. In the grand scheme of things this is a low dose and a short time, but there are other factors unique to you that may cause you some misery. I think you will have some consequence. The body gets used to things quickly, and that settles in over time, so it takes time to reverse the process, then there's the behavioral aspect to consider as well. Best to you.
If you want off of xanax, why don't you split that .25 pill in half for a few days, see how you feel?
I must say, I agree with both Laurie and balbanese on this, you can do it on your own, but it's always best to have a doc involved.
Your dose is indeed very small, so splitting it for a few days will get your body ready to be off of it for good. But call your doc first?
Best wishes to you,
My husband is 69 and has been off of xanax for a month now. He took it for 6 months and then his doctor wanted him to go off of it. He has lost 20 pounds, he is highly agitated, very figety, his body jerks involuntarily, and he can't sleep, Would this be because of going off xanax or should we look for other causes and doctors or medicine?
