Go very, very slowly: Xanax (alprazolam) is extremely addictive and it's half-life very short so you should decrease your dose very, very, very slowly to reduce the likelihood of experiencing withdrawal anxiety.

Good luck. ...Read more

After day treatment of prednisone I had bad withdrawal effects. What should I do?

Talk to whoever was prescribing the Prednisone to you - they can give best advice. ...Read more

Anxiety treatment: The treatment for anxiety is multifaceted. Including counseling, desensitization, meditation and breathing exercises, medication. The medication should be one that prevents anxiety rather than react to it. Xanax (alprazolam) is a reactive not preventative medication with a decent risk of dependence. See your doctor or psychiatrist for appropriate treatment. ...Read more

My 24 year old daughter is entering a alcohol treatment center this monday. They do not have a bed and this is their best estima tion of when one will be available. She experiences significant withdrawl symtoms when she abstains from alcohol completely. Sh

Don't: Don't know the specifics of "significant withdrawal symptoms" that you mention (such as seizure, visual hallucinations). From a safety perspective she would best be seen by a doctor (on this weekend the emergency room for that matter) to cater temporary treatment to your daughter given the circumstances for now. There is always the risk of a breakthrough seizure or other serious withdrawals from alcohol with or without the continued use of alcohol or xanax (alprazolam)-like medications because the are a couple of things to consider too (such as sleep problems, amount of alcohol used, duration of alcohol misuse) plus I wouldn't detox someone on xanax (alprazolam) being that it is a very short acting sedative. In essence, err on the side of safety when the risk is great. ...Read more

Hope you're better: OK. It's best to work w/ a Dr on the taper. That said, if you absolutely can't - as slow as possible is safest. Some say a drop of 10%/mth is great. With liquid cipralex you can do that. Otherwise, breaking tablets is ok but not easy. Best w/ help - Dr - or druggist - or as slow as you can. Glad it was short. Hope it was sweet! ...Read more

Being a IV heroin addict I used methamphetimine to cure withdrawal symptoms. It worked but I don't get high off the meth. Able to eat and sleep. Why?

Being a IV heroin addict I used methamphetimine to cure withdrawal symptoms. It worked but I don't get high off the meth. Able to eat and sleep. Why?

No clue: But I wish you were more concerned with dealing with your addictions than blocking withdrawal symptoms. I have treated MANY people who used both heroin and methamphetamine, and none of them said that amphetamine did anything beneficial for their withdrawal, so it may be just your particular biology. Most use speed to stay awake for the heroin high, or use heroin to take the edge off the speed. ...Read more

Often this discovered with time or a new medication that alters kidney function or causes dehydration, causing the lithium level to rise. The symptoms you describe are not unusual. Treatment is symptomatic as for other peripheral neuropathies. ...Read more
