hello, i took xanax for the last three days as needed (0.25mg two tabletts twice a day) and not what the doc recommended (dosage 0.25mg 2 tabletts 3x a day). i feel alot better now and only took 2 tabletts this morning. i read that you have to taper it off or it will cause seizures. my question is can i get a seizure if i stop taking it?
so you just took it for 2 days ?

took it for 3 total
chances of seizures are very less with just 3 day use of xanax. you can stop it . seizure are more likely if you have used the medicine for long.
