I've been using Xanax from January 31st to present day on and off for about 17 days total... dosages varying from .5 to 1mg at the most, with 1.25 mg being the most (only taken one day). The last three of the 17 days, I took xanax 3 days in a row... can I stop taking it right away? Is it dangerous?
Sorry to bother everyone with this question, but I've been going through a lot in my life, with a recent break up (the relationship was 10 years) and other life problems...
Thank you so much for your help!
Xanax usage about three weeks?
Hi Camilla, & welcome to the site. The number of days & lenght of time you have been taking xanax you should have no problems whatsoever just stopping it completely. I would assume you were gong thru a stressful time, & just needed to relax, but now ist's over? I wish the best for you... Mary
Welcome Camilla! A piece of welcoming advice: Mary of the Many Numbers is a great member 2 listen to cause she really cares & gives wicked good answers! I also agree w/ her on this - the length of time & amount you've been taking would be considered "subtherapuetic" which just means not a high enough dose (or long enough) 4 ur brain 2 really register it. So u should be fine just stopping. If ur still concerned, maybe there's a pharmacist u trust 2 ask? Or Dr? I hope it helped you & gave u what u needed 4 the time u needed it. Best wishes!
