I agree that benzos are a cruel treatment for many people for anxiety.
I am one of them. I was put on xanax 20 years ago and have struggled to go off it a couple of times, and I did cut my dosage in half from 3mg. to 1.5mg.
I don't have tolerance withdrawal, just take it though so I won't get withdrawls now.....wish the stupid doctor had never put me on it, as my anxiety is no better at all and you cannot keep updosing this drug.
And according to some on this forum, the benzos change your brain chemistry forever, as do many of the psych drugs. I feel trapped just as many others. No psych drug has ever cured anyone. If one can use therapy for help and natural treatments, you are much better of in my humble opinion.
