> > > > Anyone ever take xanax for an extended period and try to detox and have problems or success. I have had problems only to be put back on xanax after trying other drugs for symptoms I had not had before taking xanax.....anyone with anything similar.....or has anyone heard of anything similar.....

> I've shifted to valium and detoxed very, very slowly lowering dosage by minute amounts and had no touble at all. Are you surre the new symptoms were due to going off the xanax? Not a rising tide of depression, say, or whatever? Well, good luck. Take all the time you need as long as you are moving in the right direction overall.
I stopped taking Xanax entirely after adding in only .5 mg klonopin a day. I have withdrawn from klonopin before for extended periods of time. I found the first 2-3 days rough, but it passed easily enough as long as I had someone to talk to. I am taking klonopin again, now, but for other reasons. I don't seem to have much problem switching on and off of it, as I have had with other benzos (Halcion, e.g.) Hope this helps.
