hello ive been taking alprazolam since march 2012 i really want to quit this stuff, the dr i see isnt very helpfull :/ ive always took only 1/2 a pill .25mg at a time i did this 3 times a day for a long time the last few months ive tapered down more im down to breaking a .50mg pill into 4 pieces im trying to take them as needed i last took 1/4 pill 20hours. Melatonin has been helpfull in getting rest without needing xanax to knock me out to sleep is it safe to mix valerian root and 1/4 xanax ? i read some bad reviews on mixing them :/ valerian root was helpfull to me in the past from 2008-early 2012. thank you for any helpfull tips i appreciate your kind help
