I cold turkey stopped a 20 year Xanax addiction 4 days ago. I used Dilantin for seizure control. Today I finally see a light if hope. Anyonecekse detox Like this instead of slow taper?
Anyone dtox Xanax in 4 days?
Added 9 Mar 2011:
It's end of day 5. Best day yet. Neurologist said I did it the right way with doubling my dilantin for seizure control. He said in two weeks, if I remain seizure free, he will wean me from the seizure medicine. He agreed it was possible my seizures were caused by xananx withdrawals throughout the years. He said "you never know what comes first, the chicken or the egg"...so he kept me on xanax for safety. Can you believe this??????
What the hell is this about??????/
Xanax ruined my life for two decades. I was in a coma from seizures 5 years ago. I've lost memory, barely remembering my childrens childhhood. I am very very very angry!
No i've never heard off success with going cold turkey after that length of time been on benzo's but well done to you,if its working for you but you have to very carefull when coming off benzo's because of seizures and the like.Although you're off them 4 days-its great but its not very long for you to know that you're out of the woods just yet.Have you spoken to your doc about how you just stopped?It can be dangerous doing what you're doing,thats why they recommend tapering so you should consult with your doc also.You are great to have made the desicion to come off the benzos just double check with the doc that its safe to do what you're doing-for your own sake!
All the best and let us know how you're doing
Take care and best of luck
Great to hear you're doing so well,despite the tremors and chills but i'm sure that will pass.I kno when you're adament about something its hard to wait the year to taper off but sounds like its going gret the way you're doing it.Once you have a doc at hand incase of any emergencies you'll be ok. Why were you ina coma going back that time?Was it due to the benzos?I know there's possitive and negative sides to xanax but to be honest i can only speak good of them at the moment,they help me through everyday life as i suffer from severe anxiety/panic so they help me through that.
Anyway glad to hear you're doing well.Keep up the good work,keep us posted
Best of luck
