my fiancee has been doing xanax off and on for a while is now trying to stop and is very sick what other meds can he use to help with the withdrawls
if your not going to the dr then i recommend you taper off of the medication whatever is or was the highest dose cut that dose every 2 weeks by 25 milligrams that way your still getting some but also cutting back slowly so your withdrawl symtoms are small if any dont stop taking them instantly you could have a siezure . this could take months but better to be safe then in danger soon you will be down to the smallest amount and you will be glad you did it.
Can't add much to what has already been said other than to repeat she needs to taper more slowly so to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. How much Xanax is she use to taking? She can decrease by 0.5 mgs every two weeks and probably avoid most of the discomfort. Otherwise it is a matter of just treating the symptoms with over the counter remedies.
