... Thanks okie and philster. It was all stuff out of my control, so I could either go nuts or accept how things were (and are). Okie, you are quite correct - I certainly would have ended up physically dependent on the meds. But like I said, I took MUCH more than I needed for pain control.

... Hi Looly I came off Xanax over the course of about 5 months or so. My starting point was three .5 tabs a day. In retrospect, it would have been better to aim for a year to come off.
