I am having such a hard time right now. I'm withdrawing from xanax (been on it for like 20 years), I started the withdrawal a year ago (I was on 3 mg. and now on .50 a day) and the tail end of this is horrible. My anxiety is in full force, even though I'm on paxil too, and I'm so scared. It feels like it did when I first started having them. My husband is across the country this week on business and I'm home alone with my daughter, and I just plain feel scared! I saw my doctor today, and he suggested maybe I up my xanax again, but there is no way I'm going to do that after how far I have come, just to go through this again. I'm not agains meds obviously, I will probably be on the paxil forever now, but I don't want to start experimenting with other drugs while I'm going through this either. Can anyone reaasure me that I will be ok and suggest any techniques to help me get through this? I think night time is the worst! Thanks.
