You want off of this medication, but it works, right? Why do you want to stop, if you don't mind me asking? IF it works why fix it? I know that we are supposed to take any benzo for just a few weeks, yet I know many people that have taken it for years! Many years. I've been on and off for a long time, 20ish years. Just want you to know that you are not alone! (I may get my arse kicked for this answer, as I am a supporter of folks who need benzo's!)
I understand you wanting off of any benzodiazepine, yet if you still require them, if you will still suffer from an Anxiety Disorder that needs medication, perhaps you should have a frank discussion with your doctor about this. You MAY be able to taper off of Xanax very slowly, with the help of a doctor, as going cold turkey can cause seizures, so be careful! Seizures are NO small withdrawal symptom! As you probably know, already.
Best wishes to you and slow goes any titration,
