I've been taking Xanax 1 mg twice a day for 25 years or anxiety panic attacks post-traumatic stress syndrome has anybody successfully got off of Xanax? The reason I ask they want to get me off of Xanax but I' have taken 2 milligrams per day and it helps me with everyday life. I don't abuse it. Do you think the doctor has the right to take me off or do you know someone who's been off of it after 25 years?
