21 months off xanax with severe health anxiety


[Em...]

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am currently 21 months off xanax after a three week taper.  I was taking xanax daily for several months and started having very serious interdose withdrawal symptoms.  I have suffered from various physical symptoms but my most severe symptom has been health anxiety. I am still struggling with this on a daily basis. I have turned to Benzobuddies as a support system throughout this process and am very grateful that I was not so alone during the worst of my struggles. However, the health anxiety that I have always dealt with has been extreme since going through withdrawal and it has started to feel like it will never let up.

Hello Empath36 :hug:  Welcome to Benzobuddies

 

We are happy to have you here. I am sorry that you are still experiencing withdrawal symptoms,  you have come to a great place for support.  It’s not unusual to be having symptoms this far out, it will get better with more time.  You will find some very valuable support and information on the forum. Please feel free to browse the boards and post questions to any of the dedicated threads. 

 

I would suggest you read The Ashton Manual, reading this will give you a better understanding on why you feel the way you do.  It is a great resource for understanding the effect benzo’s have on our body.

 

Here are a few helpful links
