... etox because I would get so sick. Tapering is a good idea. I didn't drink to much while on the pills so I can't help on that part. I think if you start feeling like you need more of the Xanax then it is probably time to back off. I hope this helps. ... (8 replies)
... It's a good idea to wean off of what you are on gradually. One thing I've learned is that, no matter how much you may like and trust your doctor, let a Psychiatrist manage the medications you are on. ... (8 replies)
... ed to you. I got many benefits from some of the SSRI's that outweighed the problems. I just had other problems, and I am just uncertain of how to feel normal. Like my Psych said, don't go off of everything wandering around the earth sick if you really need help with an RX for anxiety or depression. ... (8 replies)

DO NOT go cold turkey. You may not notice any w/d at all the first week & then it could hit you when you least expect it. Try cutting... (61 replies)
... Yes I aggree, if I would have took as prescribed 1mg 3 times a day, I would have bigger trouble. It just seems that I need .25 to .5 of Xanax to get through the day. I somehow have to break that trend. I hate that I let the Ultram drag me to this point. ... (24 replies)

I do feel better today & in 2 weeks he's going to put me on a taper... (61 replies)
