I am taking 1 MG Xanax XR daily. for two years and I am trying to get off of it. Doc prescribed .5 MG XR and it made me feel terrible. It is too big of a reduction for me. She said take a .5 one day then go back to 1 MG for two days. Then .5 for two days and then back to 1 MG. There is not a .75 MG in XR. Any better ideas? Can I switch to IR and lower my dosage slowly that way? Can I take a .5 RX and a .25 XR to make .75 MG?
