4 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Because of the short half life and rapid onset, this particular drug is more reinforcing than the other benzos.
If you are on Xanax (alprazolam) and want to come off, i suggest doing this very slowly...Over at least 6 months to a year and done by someone who has experience in taking people off of xanax (alprazolam).
