I have struggled with panic attacks and anxiety for several heads now and 2 years ago was prescribed.5mg Xanax daily (in addition to an antidepressant). I would take one each night and 1 1/2 if I was having a panic attack (rarely lately). I have made great progress so last week I decided to taper myself off Xanax. I am terrified of the possible withdrawal symptoms. I know it's a small dosage but I've had it every day for two years. I am afraid of the feelings of anxiety to come back or seizures and other withdrawal symptoms.
i cut back from .5 to .25 per day and it's not day 5 and I'm having a middle of the night panic attack.
any advice on how to taper back? By cutting the dose in half did I do it wrong? Any advice helps
