I am a 37 yr old female and started all these in my early 20's. I ran out of xanax's this weekend and borrowed some of my friends klonopin but I was scared to death. I would like to know how to stop taking these. but I have extreme stress levels that include work and I'm just really moody lately. I also smoke pot when I get off work and have a couple glasses of wine. So its a lot of stuff thats masking something. i think im just so used to taking the meds and its my body thats wanting them, more than the actual moods???
ya being on xanax is really bad i was on 3 1/2 yrs and i took more than i was prescibed because they stopped working body wanted more drinking and taking benzo is not good idea dangerous ... i mean its ok to drink now and then but everyday little to much being on them that long you will need to see your doctor and see what he says ur prob as bad as me and physically addicted and will have difficult time with this if its not done slow you also seem to have drinking problem and would find AA helpful also attend NA meetings to better understand your problem with drugs , I didnt think id like NA at 1st but its been very helpful xanax is not something u can just stop if you do you will end up like me short term memory lose although iam alot better now 3months later i did suffer alot and i still do and i have tons of pain physically a good way to get off this xanax is valium switch its longer acting lasts 6hrs not as fast acting as xanax... but lasts alot longer than xanax ashton method type that in google it slow tapers you can print out n show to ur doctor so you dont have bad experience this may take 2 months or 3 u have to be patient and if you start to feel withdrawl stop slow down and stay were you are lisson to ur body good luck :) i know you can do it
