    Default will I have withdrawals after one week of taking 0.25mg?

    Hello,

    For about 7 days I've been taking 0.25mg of xanax every night before bed. Today I took 0.5 mg. If I stop taking xanax cold turkey will I have any withdrawal symptoms? Should I start by taking 0.125mg for the next few nights?

    Welcome. I wouldn't take any chances myself. I had a nightmare of a time with benzo's. A week is not a huge amount of time on them, but I think it's borderline and reducing slowly would be your best bet to head off any potential problems. Take care.

    What would be the best way to do that?

    You could spend a few days on .25mg then reduce to .125mg which is half of .25mg. Stay there for several days and reduce to half of .125mg wich is .06mg. A tiny piece, but if you're careful and maybe using a razor blade would be ok. Stay on that .06 for a few days then jump.

    I would encourage you to get a doctor involved just to be cautious. Stopping benzo's is serious business and a doctor can safely take you down. Sometimes they prescribe an anti-seizure med just in case. I urge you to talk to your doctor.
