Due to being sick and not knowing why for a year i became very anxiety ridden back in january, so they put me on Paxil and xanax. The paxil i could not tolerate, I am now on a small dose of zoloft and xanax. I am now getting off the xanax after being on it for about 6 or 7 months. I have only been taking 0.25 per day in the evenings. I have not taken any (by choice) since last Sunday, although i still have a whole bottle in my purse. I just feel so sick of covering up what may be really wrong with me. I have started feeling some physical symptoms of withdrawl (headache, bodyache, ect along with a little anxiety) does anyone have any advise to make this a smoother transition, and how long i might feel this with the small dose i was taking? I just dont want to be controlled by a pill anymore. I want to get to the bottom of what is ailing me. I want to feel like me again.

Thanks for any advise,

Stacky:(

Ive been on suboxone 8-2 for about 5 years, 3 years illegally and 2 years legally. I've tried so many times to get off of it but if I don't have at least 1 pill a day I get so dope sick. It is worse than any drug I have ever tried to get off of and believe me I have tried it all, including shooting coke. By day 3 w/o the suboxone I can't do ANYTHING! No motivation, no sleep, restlessness, no appetite, etc. Any w/drawal symptom you can imagine suboxone ill give it to you. The bad thing is w/o insurance you can't even afford it. From the pharmacy it ranges from $7-$12 a pill. Luckily I have insurance but for a while I didn't. I should have stayed on pian pills, bc its easier to detox. Pain pills is about 3 days of nightmares, but suboxone its about 3 months if you go cold turkey.
