I have been on alprazolam for about 4-5 yrs now because of my inability to sleep. I started at .25 mg & now @ 2 mg every night. I am afraid of long term use. How can I ween myself off yet still get sleep?
Muscle pain: It is very unlikely that Alprazolam cause muscular pain or twitching. Anxiety is associated to chronic pain disorders, as well as depression and irritable bowel disease.

Use opiates for RLS, Dr just prescribed alprazolam for severe agoraphobia. I have read conflicting information on this so can I use both without prob?
Will alprazolam show a false positive for nordiazepam and or oxazepam. The confirmation test was done via gc/ms from the lab i use. ?
Probably yes: My educated "guess" is that most drug blood screening is geared toward "groups" or "classes" of substances. Alprazolam, diazepam, lorazepam, and the others you mentioned are all considered to be in the class of benzodiazopine derivatives.
