Difficult: There is not a lower limit at which you are guaranteed not to have any withdrawal symptoms. Here is the official guidance around dose reduction: https://www.drugs.com/dosage/xanax.html Advise you work with a doctor licensed in your area to manage your withdrawal as you are likely to need followup and ongoing monitoring. All the best

Xanax: I Agee with your physician but just to be extra cautious I would reduce by taking it every 2hd day for 2 Days and then stop
