I should feel the difference of that soon too. That will help with the weaning of the Xanax. Also, part of my abdominal problems could have been time of the month since the pregnancy loss I have found out. I still think the Xanax with my other meds isn't a good combo but I should be completely off that in a month. I forgot if I asked if anyone has ever had to go to Buspar with their other meds after being on Xanax??

I just wanted to let you know that I didn't have any problems coming off my xanax...I thought it was going to be harder than it was!  I was terrified of coming off of it because I was on it for such a long time.  I think that we get so used to taking it, we are scared of NOT taking it.  You will do it, take it one step at a time!  Good luck!

Very cool. Really. Can you tell me more. Like how long you were on it? Were you on it with other meds? What dose and how did you wean off? With dr's help? Any withdrawls? What do you take now?

what have you got against xanax, its a good med and goes well with zoloft

buspar usually only gives a placebo effect and is mostly useless

Hi Bethers,

I hope things are going well with you with your med changes. I also think it will not be difficult for you to discontinue the xanax, as I have gone weeks without mine before with no ill effects, and I have been on xanax for over a year and a half. I hope the increased dosage of antidepressant helps! Let us know how you are doing.



P.S. for Harry... the xanax makes her sick to her stomach, that's the main reason she is trying to get off of it and try something different..

Well, I was on xanax for roughly 10 years.  I started out taking .25 mg 2-3 times a day.  After a while, my Dr. upped my dosage to .5 mg 2 times a day.  I took .5 mg for about 2 to 3 years.  When I quit taking my xanax, I cut it back to 1 pill a day for about a week, then discontinued it altogether.  I was also taking 150 mg of Effexor and decreased that to 75 mg per my Dr.'s advice.  I had some side effects with that, but none with the xanax. yeah   I think you should be fine since you upped the zoloft.  Also, try not to think about not taking the xanax, it does help!!!
