I was taking 6 Xanax a day priscribed by my doctor, i took myself off over a week ago. How much longer will i be having withdrawal symptoms?

Benzos have too many side effect tendencies with anxiety and withdrawal precisely because they are too short acting and the peaks and valleys in blood levels make side effects easy to happen. Ask your physician about the above. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
