Going off of Xanax

Posted by bvgrammy @bvgrammy, Nov 23, 2016

I have been taking Xanax for 25 years for Fibromyalgia and Anxiety. I am trying to wean myself off of it. Has anyone done this?

Hi – hoping to check in with some of you who have talked about going off of alprazolam (Xanax) and get an update on how you are doing. I think that your experiences will be beneficial to all those posting in and reading this discussion.

@kmayall – how has your medication change off of alprazolam (Xanax) gone? What will you be taking instead?

@bvgrammy – wondering where you are at now with your taper off of alprazolam (Xanax)? Have you had more headache, extra hunger and heart racing as you've gone down?

@rascal1 – are you now taking another medication in place of the alprazolam (Xanax) you were taking previously? If so, what are you now taking?

@lizdorn – since you are no longer taking alprazolam (Xanax) for sleep, what medication did your doctor prescribe instead? Has the new one been effective for you?
