I wish I could offer you advice on this one but, xanax is my absolute go to.  I have been on it for 8 years and do not abuse it or have any ill side effects from it, so I really have no desire to ever give up this med.  I completely understand why you want to though.  It is an addictive medication and alot of people do not want to be so reliant on it.

Hang in there!  This program is helping me by giving me an outlet for my thoughts, and tracking my attacks.  It does seem to be helping me.

Hello my name is Chris and I am new. I have resently decided it is time for me to get off Xanax and Aderall the next few days or weeks. Is this program a good tool to use whuile I am on Xanax, I still have phobias , but of course my panic is pretty much gone. I still avoid places like flying, high buildings,concerts and large gatherings so Xanax is not a cure all, but it has kept me feeling normal. I have been able to hold on to a job , but now I am off work and I am 53 and have been taking Xanax for over 30 years. I take 5 mg. of Xanax and 90mg of adderall and I have discussed this with a physician about tapering down.I am afraid to get off Xanax because I also am a alcoholic with eight years of recovery and I remember how lost I was when I got out of treat ment for alcoholism and I had no Xanax and my life was a living hell. I could not function, but I was sure glad I was not on any pils. However the Agoraphobia I had was not worth living with and I went back to my Phychiatrist and he put me back on medicine. Anyway I thought starting this program would be a good idea right now, while I still have avoidance issues. Any feedback is positive. Thank You
