xanax withdrawal day 15


Recommended Posts

I have been off xanax for 15 days, I was not on it very long only 3 months with a small dosage of 1 mg at night before I started to cut them in half for a month.  My doctor told me I would have no withdrawal symptoms but this has been the hardest 15 days of my life.  I need support and want to know I haven't lost my mind and what I am feeling in normal for xanax withdrawals.

Hi there. I am 17 days off xanax. My worst symptoms were when i was tapering. Now my remaining symptoms are mild fatigue, slight cog fog, and tired eyes. Some days I feel like staying in bed, but i force myself to clean and work. I find that setting small goals and achieving them helps. I hope you get better soon.

Hi lindsayb,


Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


When I did a ct, I was taking 1.5mg of Xanax; I didn't last a full day before I reinstated. That goes to show how terrible benzos can be on the brain, sometimes.


You surely haven't lost your mind but, it's always good to get things checked out with your doctor. You want anything ruled about before considering it withdrawal related.


There's not much advice I can give you if you've already gotten yourself off of the drug. That was a very rapid taper you did and it could explain why you're feeling such symptoms. I'll leave you a link to the Ashton Manuel, at the bottom of this message. Try to read through as much as you can; it might help you understand what's going on.



Many buddies are tapering or have already tapered off Xanax so, you're not a lone. I'm sure you'll find a lot of information here.


Let us know if you need any help. Glad you found us  :)

Hi Lindsayb


I'm sorry you are going through this.  All of us here can relate as we all are in various stages of tapering, jumping off,  and recovering from benzo use.  Our benzo stories are similar.  I too was on relatively small doses of xanax for 3 months.  I tapered by .25 weekly and have been benzo free for 6 weeks now.  I had some pretty intense symptoms for about 3 weeks after jumping and then things began to improve.  I am much better now but I still have symptoms of dizziness, headaches, palpitations, fatigue and just feeling spacey and weird.  MY symptoms come and go with a mind of their own but the overall pattern is one of improvement.  Hang in there, you will get through this.  Your brain and body are healing every day.
