Safe Withdrawal From Xanax vs. Dangers of Cold Turkey Xanax Withdrawal

Safe and scientific methods used at Alternative to Meds Center help the client achieve their tapering goals. Our staff carefully monitors each client during the period of slowly decreasing the dosage of Xanax. During this period, a variety of effective treatment methods will quickly and efficiently reduce discomfort and stress that frequently accompanies benzodiazepine withdrawal. Doctors and healthcare professionals know that abrupt Xanax withdrawal, as in the “cold turkey” approach can trigger possible seizures, cardiac arrest, psychosis, stroke, and even death. Slow reduction processes, with careful monitoring and effective adjunctive therapies, gives the body time to adjust back to a much healthier, better functioning drugfree state. 

More side effects of Xanax withdrawal can include: 

  • tremors, potentially fatal convulsions
  • mood swings, moodiness
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • insomnia
  • nightmares 

Reasons for Prescribing Xanax

Doctors most commonly prescribe Xanax, a benzodiazepine drug, to treat symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia and other disorders.  Xanax may have masked these symptoms, for a time.  However, the withdrawal process done too fast may trigger a formidable set of heightened symptoms:  benzodiazepine discontinuation syndrome.  For example, Xanax withdrawal may “uncover” and even magnify the symptoms that were there before starting the drug. In Xanax discontinuation syndrome, the original anxiety is still wreaking havoc magnified. This is markedly true where a person attempted discontinuation  abruptly.  This extreme anxiety requires that specific methods must be employed to stabilize the neurochemistry. Neurochemistry stabilization is achieved naturally, during Xanax withdrawal, which simplifies the withdrawal process. The tools provided give the client contentment, relaxation, and comfort.  

Recovery From Xanax Dependency

Skills, therapies, and tools provide the client with the ability to cope with their original symptoms, such as anxiety, insomnia, fatigue and stress without having to suffer Xanax dependency syndrome. Doctors, counselors in both individual and group settings teach clients how to use these methods within our Sedona treatment center. A client so equipped can avoid the pitfalls of past patterns of behavior. Clients learn and work on the skills needed to dismantle their previous dependency on Xanax and overcome the reasons that, if not resolved, may invite relapse. Beyond the relief of a refreshed and healthy body, these learned skills provide a clear path of sustained recovery without Xanax dependency. Even more importantly, once the drugs are not present, any original symptoms and problems solve much more easily and efficiently than when drugs in the system interfered with and compromised the neurochemistry of the body, as well as interfered with the client’s ability to remember, reason and problemsolve efficiently.
