hello there, chemist here...i apologize for the delay, busy....xanax is a triazolobenzodiazepine, and is in the same class as estalopram and triazolam. tradiational benzos are 1,4 and 1,5 substituted drugs. xanax incorporates a triazolo group, making the binding affinity for the omega sub-site in GABA_{A} more pronounced. as one can taper from, say, valium to klonopin, one cannot with reasonable comfort taper from xanax to a 1,4 or 1,5 benzo...all the best, chemist
