... these terrible feelings take over me. Tremors, bumps all over me, mass confusion burning of the feet and hands. I thought it was oxycodone withdrawl, I eventually figured out it was xanax withdrawl. In fact I dont even feel the oxycodone withdrawl because the xanax withdrawl is so wicked and I would not wish this on my worst enemy. April of 2011, I experienced my first seizure.I had stopped taking my xanax for about 3 days. I thought I could ride it out, but I was wrong I ended up in the ER with a grand mal seizure . I was scared. I admit I did abuse xanax at one point but now I try to do just 1 mg a day but usually I need 2mg. 1 mg is not enough, I start to get withdrawl symptoms. I then had another seizure about one month ago from today. I was taking suboxone at the time and stopped taking xanax. I thought the suboxone was helping with the xanax withdrawl as well as the oxycodone. It was a few days since I had last taken a xanax, and not sure if the suboxone played a part in inducing this seizure I had while I was driving. Luckily there was someone in the car with me. This is getting out of control now I am tired of having seizures and do not want to be on meds for the rest of my life. I am trying to ween down, but every time I try to stop I get those terrible feelings and afraid of having a seizure. Can you recommend anything for me? When I was in the hospital they gave me ativan. Which I think is like giving an alcoholic whiskey who normally drinks vodka
