  5. What are the withdrawl symptoms of xanax?
Asked: 2018-01-14 16:30:26
When I was in college I suffered from serious anxiety. I was going through med school, and one of my superiors gave me a prescription for Xanax. It made a huge difference, and I got dependent on it to get through my rounds. I understand addiction, and I’m pretty sure I’ve gone down that rabbit hole. I need to stop taking it but I’m afraid that the withdrawals will interfere with my ability to do my job. I don’t know if I can take time off, what are the withdrawals like?

believe it or not, it’s not uncommon for doctors and nurses to get addicted to drugs. They have a lot of access, after all. See if that same doctor can help you to take a smaller amount each week until you’re almost completely weaned off of the medication. Otherwise, you’ll want to take about a week off so that you can get through the insomnia, appetite changes, headache, confusion, seizures, and other symptoms that can go with benzo withdrawals.

This is a lose lose situation. If your surgeon, you definitely want to make sure you’re not treating anybody going through with these withdrawals. You can suffer from seizures or end up having really bad shakes that come out of nowhere. It can also make you paranoid and really anxious. The last thing you need is to have an anxiety attack in the emergency room. Actually, that might be the best place to have an anxiety attack for other people. Since it was a legitimate prescription, it might not hurt to go and talk to your boss and ask about treatment or cutting your dose down slowly. Just get some perspective from someone else.
