Welcome to BenzoBuddies, lagertha.


Congrats on halving your Xanax dose!  I'm glad you're here for support in continuing your taper.  Here are a couple of links to pertinent boards to begin posting to the wider membership:

When you have a chance, I highly recommend that you take a look at The Ashton Manual, which is an authoritative source on what to expect during withdrawal and recovery, authored by Dr. C. Heather Ashton, who is an expert in the field. It provides a great deal of information that can be very reassuring during any stage of this process, including a list of common symptoms with helpful explanations on the reasons for their existence.


Take care,

Challis  :smitten:

Good luck developing your plan! You will find a lot of help and encouragement here from many people who have been through a similar situation. Challis gave you some excellent starting points and once you read over those the forums for developing a taper plan and xanax support groups are really helpful. Good luck!
