Just to be sure, are you on 1/4 mg or actually two hundredths? If it is .025 and not .25, I cannot imagine you feeling any relief with that dose. If you ARE on 1/4 mg, (0.25), lets just say your dr is EXTREMELY misinformed about how to get someone off benzos, especially Xanax. Skipping days of Xanax is crazy, especially if you've been taking it regularly. Xanax is a beast to detox off of. I'm doing it right now, but my dose is too high to make the switch over to diazepam, so I am taking Klonopin, (another long half-life benzo), now and will detox down to 2 mg's of K-pin before going onto diazepam. As another poster said, you should be put on diazepam, (Valium). Super long half-life, so it actually tapers on its own. Plus it is a very weak BZ and comes in very low doses. Your 1/4 mg of Xanax, if that's what your dose is, is equivalant to 5 mg's of diazepam, and diazepam comes in pill doses as small as 2 mg's. If I were you, I'd ask for 5 mg's of diazepam, split the pills and take half in the morning and half in the evening, then try to quarter the pills when comfortable. Everyone reacts differently when detoxing off benzos. Some can jump ship off 0.5 mg's of Xanax, while others need to titrate down to 10ths of a mg of Valium before stopping. Whatever you do, don't let your dr put you through hell just because they don't have a clue.
