Discontinuing Alprazolam

dear sir(s), I am taking alprazolam daily (0.25 -0.5)mg for the last 3 years. Whenever I try to discontinue I tend to get onset of anxiety along with insomnia. Though I can pull on with a dosage of 0.25 mg daily, an additional dose of 0.25mg makes me ...

I drop a comment wvneeher I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it's a result of the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed. And on this article About Alprazolam Addiction 800-303-2482 | Alprazolam Addiction Dot Net. I was moved enough to drop a comment I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or do a few of the comments look like left by brain dead people? And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list the complete urls of all your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Alprazolam has been helping me with my anxiety for seven years. The drug has been a godsend for me since I was 16 years old when I started to suffer from anxiety. My doctor has me take 1 mg a day and I have never had any side effects. It also seems to be helping with my fibromyalgia. I’m told it can be habit forming. Since I cannot take the chance of not being able to take it all, however, I will never take more than what my doctor suggests I take.

My doctor prescribed .5 mg of Alprazolam to be taken once or twice a day, as I needed them. I started to take them only about once a month but eventually began to take one each week and ultimately one a day. Since I’d rather not take them, I switched to ½ a pill a day. That seemed to work pretty well so I tried ¼ of a tablet, which did not work. When I don’t take ½ a pill a day, I feel numbness and pain in my left arm. As soon as I take my ½ pill I feel much better, however unless I can find some other way to control my anxiety I may never be able to stop taking them.
