need advise
I was on 2.5 a day mainly to help me sleep and help with bp going up due to my pain medications. some people get sleepy on pain meds others get energy! well thats me! when I take my pain meds I can clean my whole house! so my doc gave me xanex to help control my bp and it worked but now I want to stop the xanex because I tapered down from my pain meds to a point that is manageable.. but sometimes not always I get a spike in my BP so not sure what to do? i've got myself down to 1.25ml of xanex from 2.5
but I'm at a stand still at this level for weeks due to my spikes in BP! I'm so confused  because I need my pain meds to manage my pain and now my bp spikes are more frequent due to my decrease in xanex use..  can anybody find me somebody to help!!!!!!!! me

My BP shout up to 200. I was given alprazolam(xanex 0.25 mg) for a month. My BP become normal. and I was asked to stop xanes. The doctor said that anxiety was the cause of Higher BP. Unfortunately I developed insomnia in absence of xanex. So I had to restart xanex for insomnia.This is story of 1991. Gradually I increase the dose of xanex to 2 mg.  Now I am advised to ta,take 1Mg. of xanex and 5 mg. of zolpidine. I get sleep for about 5 hrs a night.I also take a nap of one hour in the afternoon. I started taking xanex in 1991. So I am keen to stop this drug. I am experimenting with some yoga postures which i got by Googling-yoga postures for insomnia. there are 6 yoga postures which I do before retiring. I hope to succeed with this experiment.
