Hello everyone, I was recently diagnosed with anxiety and was temporarily prescribed .25mg of xanax up to 3 times a day as needed (a 10-day supply, 1 refill available), while waiting for zoloft to take effect. I did that for 2 days and did not feel relief, so my doc said I could up the xanax to two .25mg tablets 3 times a day for a total of 1.5mg per day. I ended up settling on 1.25 mg per day and did that for 5 days. Then I successfully decreased to .875mg for the past 3 days. I would now like to start tapering off of the xanax even more, as I do not want to be dependent on this drug. I also do not have any refills left and hope that the SSRI (Zoloft) will start taking effect soon. My question is: since I have only been on xanax for less than two weeks, do I still need to taper off rather slowly, or can I safely taper by .25mg every couple of days? Any insight would be helpful, and I can provide more information if needed. Thank you!
