I didn't sleep well last night again, it's part of the withdrawal of the xanax the insomnia, woke up with the shakes and had a few small sad bouts of depression. All I know is I never want to experience this ever again and hope that one day I can feel totally normal again. The dr. doesn't want to increase Zoloft at this time feels it may be too much in the long run when I get through the withdrawals. Basically, I have been told to ride it out and that it can take a few more days, weeks, or months. :( Thank you for all your love and support.

The dr. has suggested Vit B Complex vitamins to give a try to see if they help?

Hi Bethers,

Sorry your having a tough time with the withdrawls. I remember when I stopped taking paxil and the withdrawth symptoms where unbearable. Could you take viluim root or sleepy time tea to help you fall asleep?

Thanks everyone. I don't think I am going to do the B Complex vitamins. I will just wait it out and do juices, calcium, veggies, fruits, water etc. I was told B Complex can increase anxiety and can it's own withdrawal symptoms. No thanks. I am doing ok today. I slept through the night. I am hoping I am near the end. I just have to take each day as it comes and hope it's over soon.

Many hugs to my good friends here for your love and support.
