> One more thing: the rebound anxiety associated with benzo withdrawal, even between doses, is absolutely horrible - way worse than the anxiety the drug was originally prescribed for. Before I realized it was a withdrawal symptom, I simply assumed that it was just an alarming reminder of what I was taking it for in the first place. Of course, I was wrong.
That sucks! I guess we are all different. I start to notice the next day if I've forgotten my Xanax XR first by feeling "weird" (probably de-presonalization), then maybe later in the day it's some agitation, and then anxiety. For me it hasn't made my anxiety worse without it, but that's just my experience.
