Can taking. 5 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) a day for 2 weeks and suddenly stopping cause mild withdrawl symptoms like insomnia and anxiety?

Or worse!Talk to Dr! The withdrawal symptoms from xanax (alprazolam) can be life-threatening, so perhaps you are fortunate. It is never a good idea to stop psychotropic meds without mediucal guidance and doctors will almost never stop these drugs abruptly. If things get worse, get to a urgent care or an er quickly. If they don't - make an appointment w/ the prescribing dr to quit carefully. Best wishes.
