Alprazolam withdrawal

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drug dependence

 

So I took about 8-10mgs of xanax a couple weeks ago, and I’m worried that I’m currently going through I slight withdraw.

My question is: what are the beginning stages of xanax withdraw?

 

 

Sleep disturbance, irritability, increased tension and anxiety, panic attacks, hand tremor, sweating, difficulty with concentration are common symptoms of benzodiacepines withdrawal. 2 weeks is not time enough to develop a total dependence, but there could be some symptoms. Tappering down during a few days will make it easier. If withdrawal symptoms appear, you could switch to diazepam (0.25-0.5 mg of alprazolam are equivalent to 5 mg of diazepam) although this change should be supervised by a physician
