xanax... i am currently on day three with no subs and the last three days have been hell.. no sleep.. sweats.. zero energy.. i have also been taking xanax.. approx 4mg a day now, which does help with the withdrawl, but once the first monster is over with, i have to get rid of the second one. Xanax.. and i know its worse. So my doctors suggestion was phenobarbital (sp?) and then to ween off that. Anyone had any experience with using it to come off xanax or other benzo's.
Hang in there. What dose of Suboxone were you on when you stopped? You may have jumped a little too soon. The worst is going to start around day 3 to day 5 and could last for a couple weeks or more. You may want to consider going back to a very low dose of Suboxone and taper slower.
Phenobarbital is used for benzo withdrawal though I have never used it for that. Do consider tapering off the benzo's as stopping cold turkey can cause seizures although the use of phenobarbital helps with that.
