I have been taking a very low daily dosage (.125 mg) of xanax for several years. I am now trying to just stop using the drug. I take no other medication. So far the main sympton I am experiencing is muscle ache. I think I can beat this cold turkey. Given the low dosage, is there any reason to taper or use other drugs to assist?
Stopping any benzodiazapine cold turkey can be dangerous, one may have seizures. Call your doc/pharmacist for a taper schedule to be on the safe side.
I've never heard of Xanax at that dose, had no idea it came in such small miligrams.
Good luck, and be careful,
