My taper down from being on Xanax for almost 3 years has begun and I am currently on my second day of going from 3MG XR to 2.5XR.  I am still in the early stages and although today is my second day and since I am on the XR version I am cutting back by .5MG XR at a time every month.  Is it normal to still feel bad going down with this amount?  Today I felt very tired, very anxious, and I dont know how long it will take for me to get used to this but my plan is to continue to go down .5MG XR at a time.  Does anybody have any input on their xanax withdrawal stories such as how long it took, symptoms, were you able to do it...Xanax was great for my panic attacks but now I no longer feel the need to stay on this.  With your guys and my doctor's input I can hopefully relate to everything.

Hey Fusion I dont have the answers for Xanax but wanted to say GOOD gor your attempting this and I know you will make it I think you are going about it with the amounts just great
I started withdarwing off of Valium and I have been on them over 30 yrs I am not doing as bad as I thought I would I do still have the odd bad day but not too many
My thoughts and prayers are with you
