My doctor prescribed Xanax 8 years ago for sleep after my sister died very suddenly. I have taken .25 mg as needed ever since, mostly for sleep help but sometimes for anxiety and/or panic. I don't take it often, and 20 pills usually lasts me for several months. I have never felt addicted or suffered any negative consequences from taking it occasionally, but now after reading comments on this forum, I am feeling anxious about taking it.

I used to feel afraid too … I would read the experiences of others… when I tapered I didn't have any issues others had… and I'm 3 months no ativan… I knew I wanted to get off and I tapered the way my Dr told me and took it one day at a time. You got this!
