I am a 50 yr old female and have been taking xanax for the last 7 months. I started at 1 mg per day and have tapered down to .125 a day for the last 3 weeks. Very few days Ive taken .25 mg in a day. When is it safe to just quit or should i taper even more before stopping?
Hello shoelace, Congrat getting off the benzo.
Do it over 3 weeks by using 1 pill every other day for 2 weeks, then every third for third week, then stop.
If you start experiencing withdrawals start the .25 mg again until you're stable then continue to cut lower and try it again every other day etc... best of luck
