Hello The rid ah. You need to be carefull (very) in withdrawing of from Xanax. The very best situation, would be for you to sit down with your doctor and plan a slow, gradual taper. Depending on the dose and length of time being on the drug is a major player, factor. I'm not a doctor or detox therapist and so am not qualified to assist in regards to Xanax detoxification. Regards, pledge
I totally agree with Pledge on his answer. Since you didn't list your milligrams or how often you take it, & how long you have been on it, makes it very difficult to tell you how to taper from it. Do you take it for sleep at night or is it for anxiety? Things of this nature. Without this knowledge, we couldn't begin to help you... Mary
this is definitely a doctor matter, but you are on quite a high dosage of Xanax. Generally, when they take you down, they switch you over to a long acting benzo such as clonopine, (which has an 18 hour half live vests a four hour half life), and taper you down from there. Either way, you need to talk to your doctor, tell them your symptoms and why you think it is the xanax, and take it from there. DO NOT go off cold turkey, as Pledge in his infinate wisdom is always correct. You can SEIZURE, and cause brain damage.
You need to go to the e. R. Or your dr,tell them whats going on,they will probably put you on klonipin or valium because you dont have to take as many cause they have a long half life,if you dont undrstand half life look up valium or klonipin on wikipedia,it will explain,good luck
