Hello friends. I need some input. I have been prescribed xanax for almost a year and I recently switched docs. I went from a rheum to a pain management clinic. The only thing I was getting from my rheum was xanax, but she was writing me for 70 a month. At first I didn't take that many, but I began to take more and more at night to help me sleep. I was up to about 2 per night plus a half of one during the day if I got anxious or panicky. When I went to the pain management doc yesterday, he told me he did not prescribe that and I would have to get it from my family doc. My family doc says he does not prescrible that either and he would talk to me about it on Monday. I had carefully extended my pills to last until my last doc appointment. Now I have nothing and I am trying not to panic. I asked my family doc's nurse if it was dangerous to stop xanax abruptly and she said, "Obviously not or the doc would have told me." So is it dangerous to stop this drug abruptly?? I would think so. I understand that most doc believe you should not take this for an extended period of time, but why doesn't anyone care that I might be sitting here going nuts?
