But wait until you want to get off the Xanax some time later, not easy.

I’m about to start the process from Pristiq, same family. After much research and talking to both of my doctors I can pass this information: DO NOT GO COLD TURKEY. Slowly is the way to go, e.g. 1/4 mg. drop every 4 to 6 weeks. There are one or two other ways it can be done. If at all possible don’t do this alone, have medical supervision, tell your friends and family. If necessary find a support group as the antidepressants don’t come with a ‘warning, hard to withdraw from’ statements. I’m a week into cutting down by a quarter, so far so good. Pristiq comes in a square so I split them in half on the diagonal then I can split that half into a quarter when needed.
Other than this eat healthy, exercise, be social when possible and stay busy.
Good luck to both of us.
