Support for coming off Xanax


Recommended Posts

Hello Tjones and Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


You've come to the right place to find support for quitting Xanax.  We're glad you've joined us!  You'll find a wealth of information  here about tapering off benzos as well as warm support from a community of members who understand what this process is like.   


We typically suggest a slow careful taper with cuts of no more than 5-10% every 10-14 days or longer, adjusting the size of cuts and how often you make them to suit you needs.  A slow gradual taper helps minimize withdrawal symptoms so you remain as functional as possible through your taper.


We invite you to explore the site at your own pace.  Here are some links to help you get started:

The Ashton Manual  is an excellent resource about benzo withdrawal.  We highly recommend familiarizing yourself with it.


These boards may be especially relevant to your situation.  Please feel free to post with your own questions on the forum:

Planning Your Withdrawal (Taper Plans)

Withdrawal Support (during your taper)



It’s helpful to create a signature so other members who want to reply to your posts can see where you are in the process. Here’s how to add your benzo info automatically to your posts: go to Profile, then Forum Profile, write your info (which benzo, dose, taper history) in the text box and save. Thanks! Let us know if you need help with this.


We're glad you're here.  Please reach out for support-

Brighterday.  :)
