I have taken Xanax for almost 15 years and decided that it's not helping me with my tinnitus anymore. I have only taken two tabs a day at .025 per tab. I'm tapering at 1/4 of a tab per week. Is this fast? My doctor stated to me a much slower withdrawal but his period of time would be five years as we figured? I'm concerned that at that pace I will be long gone. What signs should I look for for problems with my program? My tinnitus still bothers me but I can live with that but the drug well it seems to be doing nothing so why keep on taking it?
