my friend takes over 12 green bars a day, im trying to help him wean off but im scared of him having bad with drawls.. is there any over the counter drugs or vitamins that can keep him from getting sick?
First let me say that he can NOT just stop taking this medicine cold turkey. He will most likely have a seizure if he does. He will have to slowly decrease his daily dosage by half a bar every week to 10 days at the fastest. This means dropping to 11 1/2 bars daily for a week, then to 11 bars daily for a week, etc. This is a slow process, but he will avoid withdrawals this way. He definitely needs to do something as he is taking more than the maximum dose of this medication. If he is unable to wean, he needs to be hospitalized and treated for the possibility of seizure before taken off the Xanax. Nothing over the counter will be of much use.
