I have had several back operacetions and was prescribed lortab 10/500 4 times a day and xanax 3mgs a day.I have been on these meds for about 6 years. 12 days ago I told my doctor that I wanted off both the lortab and xanax,he said ok and put me on ultrams and told me to take 1mg of xanax at bedtime with a lortab, but if I take lortab at bedtime i would not be able to sleep,and I was worried that the xanax withdrawal would just drag on forever so I stoped taking it to. I maid it 12 days cold turkey from both meds but the withdrawals from the xanax were still pretty bad, so today I took .25 mgs at noon.I'm thinking about taking .25mgs at bedtime. So I was wondering should I have kept going or did I do the wright thing by giveing in? I thought that after 12 days the withdrawals would have been alot better but they were still fairly bad.So how long will it take me to wean myself off xanax? Thanks
