Hello merrymis 424,
Withdrawal symptoms include headaches, anxiety, tension, depression, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, irritability, sweating, dysphoria, dizziness, derealization, depersonalization, numbness/tingling of extremities, hypersensitivity to light, sound, and smell, perceptual distortions, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, appetite loss, hallucinations, delirium, seizures, tremor, stomach cramps, myalgia, agitation, palpitations, tachycardia, panic attacks, short-term memory loss, and hyperthermia.
I do not recommend this I did a cold turkey from Xanax, and it was... terrible for almost 4 weeks, the higher the doses and the longer you are on them the harder it becomes.
I now take ativan, and I would suggest if you have the possibility to discontinue the benzo gradually under Dr.´s supervision, again if you can.
Best of luck,
