Has anyone experienced withdrawal symptoms when trying to ween off of Xanax?  I have been taking 3 mg XR for about 8 months.  I just went to 2 mg XR and I feel horrible.  Has anyone experienced this?

I haven't but have you asked your prescriber about tapering down? PErhaps you need a specific taper schedule? Maybe going to the regular Xanax intermittently. I have no idea but I do know that getting off it is supposed to be gradual and is tough initiallly.
Lots of luck

  Hi aquarias

Going down on your meds like that is ok and going from 3mgs to 2mgs should really not have that much stress on you for you may just be overthinking about it and putting yourself under more stress then you should be thinking that your anixety is going to come back to you the way it was or are you on xanax for other reasons?

i think you are worrying too much about it, just relax and taper down gradually

yiou may have what is called a psychological addiction

xanax doesnt last long so divided doses 2 or 3 times a day is usually best

When I quit Xanax I did my increasing the time between doses by 1/2 hour increments.  At first I was pretty obsessed with how much time till my next dose but after about two weeks it got easier.  Good luck and try to find something to take your mind off it.
