How to stop xanax

I have a rare medical disorder causing involutary movements of tongue and jaw, for which I receive botox injections.  The disorder has caused my mouth to become distorted and makes me very nervouse and I have tremendous anxiety attacks.  My doctor has prescribed up to 3 xanax a day for this anxiety.  I take one .05 xanax a day but would like to completel get off the medicine.  I have only used it this much in last 60 days.  I have tried to stop but most I can stay off of the medication is 48 hours then I just get all jittery, etc.  Any suggestions.  I know it is hard to stop cold turkey but I don't want to further damage my brain by taking this medication.

First, contact your prescribing Dr. and set up a schedule with him/her. Second, don't stop taking xanax abruptly - the dosage must be reduced down slowly. If you abruptly stop taking it, you can get rebound anxiety and other symptoms.

Good luck...
