Im trying to get off Xanax. Ive been on it for 6 mos. and im starting to realize its doing me more harm than good. It's hard to tell what is causing what symptoms sometimes, im i having a flare or is it my meds? I can sleep better when i take it but i get real, real dizzy and have a hard time breathing. I goto a homeopathic that did muscle testing and he even told me it's working negatively with all the systems in my body. A few weeks ago i tried getting off of it and could not sleep, felt nauseous. I only take .5 mg.(1/2 a tab) a night so its hard to ween off of it. Should I try taking it one night and then not taking it one night or should i just stop cold turkey?? Someone told me it was harder to get off of than heroin... Anyone had this problem before and have suggestions?
