I totally agree, I think that's too fast of a wean. Your weaning instructions are the same exact method I was told to use, to wean off of benzos. I currently take a total of 1 mg of xanax a day, .5 in AM and .5 in PM. When I go off of it, I will cut .25 out for two weeks, then cut another .25 out for two weeks, and so on until i'm off. My doc even told me to take one .25 every other day for two weeks, and then stop.
It's going to take me a good two months to wean off of 1 mg, but it's worth it to do it very slowly. This method has worked for me in the past, and i've had no side effects at all from it, so i'll stick to that again when it's time. :)
