would switching from xanax to gabapentin help reduce my pain further from fibromyalgia but also help with withdrawals from benzodiazapine to help avoid seizures? are they safe to take together in low doses otherwise?

Better off Xanax, be: It would be better to be off Xanax and benzodiazapine. You would be slowly tapered off. There are bettr ways to reat fibromyalgia - Gabapentin up to 1800 mg total a day, or lyrica up to 450 mg/day and duloxetine. You need to be re-evaluated
