It could take months.  Yes very easy to get hooked.  But xanex is is a drug u should never just stop taking without Drs.. awareness   They should taper u off so u dont go into seizures. My Dr. stressed this to me when prescribing me this drug.  I am going thru the change of life and this is why I was prescribed this med.  Anytime u feel u need to talk send me a message.
