I was on xanax 4yrs and detoxed off them in 2wks now 1 month later i still cant feel my feet or hands nor can i smell or taste and constant motion i took drug test today doc ordered it came back clean anyone know how long these feelings last ?
Are you entirely sure that the symptoms you are experiencing are a result of the xanax detox? Every person is different in terms of physiology/metabolism/brain-body chemistry but I've tapered-off of Klonopin, Ativan, and Xanax (all benzos) on many separate occasions and never experienced anything even remotely like what you are talking about... some numbness and jitters after last dose (for about a week) but that was it... Are you taking any other meds that may be acting differently without the alprazolam keeping them in check... What did the doc say? Post further if possible, this sounds really strange.

your question caught my eye-I am new here and was just browsing to seehow the group works.
I know exactly what you are describing and it should go away. I had tingly hands for 3 months after detoxong, along with other symptoms, and went back on benzos though Ive maintained a lower dose for 4 years now.
I was prescribed first xanax then klonipin for about 20 years. Yes, I took benzos daily for 20 years. I got off of them in a hospital setting so I could enter a treatment program and it was, well brutal!
I didn't think benzos were causing me problems, they never have and I beleive I need them and prescribed and taking them again.
