Hello, I am sorry that you are having these issues with your Xanax and these withdrawal symptoms. You were definitely at a very high dose of the Xanax at 8mg/day, so I can understand how distressing this can be for you right now with the withdrawal symptoms at the 3mg/day dose. I would like to ask a couple questions to get a better idea of your situation, so that I can better assist you.
1. Are you having recurrent seizures within the last few days?
2. Have you contacted your psychiatrist about these withdrawal symptoms?
