My new pdoc is trying to wean me down on the xanax as well.
I was taking 1mg up to 2 sometimes 3 x's daily. My last pdoc just kept telling me to take ANOTHER xanax when I was complaining of becoming too irritable.
My new pdoc, doesn't like that approach, thus the weaning.
He did some other adjustments to my meds as well but I'm really having a hard time lowering my dose of xanax.
I too have been on it for at least 5 years!!!
I have been clenching my hands, teeth, everything!!!
I have been having huge muscle aches, but again I have fibromyalgia and was just thinking that was the culprit. ?
It's VERY HARD. I think I'm suffering withdrawl symptoms!!!!
He said to call him if I had any issues. I may have too.
P.S. I forgot that I'm starting to get panic attacks too. Sheesh!
