I have been on xanax for several years. I take 8mgs daily and I am entering the hospital to be medically supervised coming off of the drug. I have come off of 3mg of xanax and know how painful it is. I can't imagine the pain that will come with this detox. I know that you can seizure and die from w/d. Has anybody come off of this kind of dosage before? They are putting me on Suboxone. Will this help with the withdrawal?
