So I've been on xanax or ativan for anxiety since about last October. The most I've taken is 1 mg of xanax a day (split into .5mg twice a day) The Ativan I know I took 2x a day but honestly dont remember the dose. My doc switched me from ativan to xanax about 2 weeks ago.
I was taking Prozac at the same time and took a .5 pill and completely passed out sitting up at my desk. I have since ended the prozac (was only on for about 2 weeks), and have been taking .25mg of xanax 1-2x a day for the last 2 weeks. I was down to one .25 for a few days, and then Yyesterday I didn't take any and today started to feel out of it, a little dizzy, and had some of that weirdo "things dont seem real" stuff going on. So I took a .25
I'm honestly not sure that now is the best time for me to be stopping this, because my anxiety isn't great, but I really don't want to have a long term benzo addiction.
Should I just keep on the .25 day for a while? And then would it be ok to stop from .25, or do I need to go down another step? I know I'm not talking about huge doses or anything, but I do want to eventually rid myself of all medications.
