My doctor is switching/tapering me off alprazolam after a week and a half to Lamictal. I was taking alprazolam 0.5 mg 3x day. How many people have taken Lamictal? I am starting tomorrow with the lowest dose (0.25 mg) and taking Xanax 0.5 mg along with it. I am nervous and worried especially with any withdrawal symptoms from alprazolam and side effects with Lamictal. I am feeling the urge to go to the alprazolam bottle. The pharmacist told me it should be a smooth transition and tapering. Any comments, support, experiences is appreciated! Thank you!
