HIGH PRIORITY.50mg of Xanax every night to help me sleep for

This answer was rated:

Hi, I take .50mg of Xanax every night to help me sleep for about 6 months. I was sick a few weeks ago and took .50mg twice a day for several days to help me sleep. Now I have run out and for the past week and a half I have had some major withdrawal symptoms. I didn't realize what was wrong with me at first. I have extreme anxiety, headaches, depression, diahhrea, which is very unlike me. Is this normal for such a small dosage? I have a call in to my dr. I DO NOT WANT ANY MEDICAL ADVICE but I want to know if this is normal considering the dosage and the fact that I only take it at night to sleep?

Yes this is normal to have withdrawal symptoms even if dose is less.
