My boyfriend is tapering off of xanax currently, he doesn't talk much about it and has his days but I do believe he's getting help from a professional. He was prescribed it for anxiety, so when he's tapered off should he be still taking it for his anxiety? or another drug? will this just result in another addiction? does anyone have any experiences similar? i believe he also has depression but he's not taking anything for that, will that play a big part in all of this?
