(((P-Fit))) Ok I have not been on this med but have heard that it is very common to have some increase in anxiety when weaning off the med. I am glad you have the Xanax for those emergency times. I too use Xanax when I start feeling too anxious. Keep on with your weaning schedule, but remember that anxiety is part of the weaning process, but will get better. And continue using the Xanax to help in those rougher times.
Come here and vent all you like, we are always here for you!!!
