Another possibility: I agree with the previous answer. However, if you are down to 0.125 mg/day, you may no longer be withdrawing. This may be your anxiety disorder reoccurring. Consider non-addicting treatment alternatives.

Crippling anxiety : You have taken steps to reduce your anxiety but it still interferes with your life. Either psychotherapy or pharmacotherapy are indicated at this point. Ideally both. Your primary care provider may be able to refer to a psychotherapist or offer medication as treatment. An antidepressant would be a first line approach. Anxiolytics, like Xanax, are best avoided initially as they are habit forming.

Not that specific : The 10 panel screen identifies opioids as a group. It doesn’t distinguish which opioids are present. Often a follow on test is used to confirm the screen. Typically, a gas chromatography mass spectrometer ( gc/mass spec) is used. This test can identify which opioid is present.
