Was on Xanax for 8 years. Then I was forced to change doctors and my new doctor won't prescribe it. More and more doctors won't because it is so addictive and the withdrawal is a nightmare. I'm on my 15th day without and still not right. I'm still anxious, shaking, no sense of time. Everything tastes like metal. I'm in a cloud and can't get out. Need advice and how long before I can feel a little bit normal again?
