The Steps of Xanax Withdrawal

Coming off Xanax cold turkey can be incredibly dangerous so you should never do it by yourself–but it’s also very dangerous to stay on it. So what can you do? Luckily, there are many trained medical professionals here in Florida who can help you come off Xanax right.


What Happens?

First you need to make that call. Talking with an intake specialist, you can find the best method for your detox procedure. People have different experiences and so it’s important to find the right fit. Then, with the assistance of rehab specialists, you’ll be weaned off the drug in a safe way.

An unfortunate part of detox is withdrawal. Your body has become addicted to Xanax and will respond to a lack of access to it. Withdrawal symptoms for Xanax include:

  • Anxiety and muscle tension
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Depression and paranoia
  • Seizures and Tremors
  • Diarrhea and an irregular heartbeat
  • Many others are possible

This list is not presented to scare you away, just to alert you to the truth of what you need to prepare for. Your body and mind has altered as a consequence of this addiction, and medically trained professionals will know how best to respond to your detox.


What’s Next?

It takes about 4 days for Xanax to leave the body and only then can recovery begin. The worst of the symptoms will begin 3-4 days in. It can take around 2 months for the symptoms to wear off entirely.

Working with medical professionals is only part of it. You will also need to develop a plan to avoid relapse. Talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, even clean living situations may be necessary.


While leaving Xanax behind can be hard, it’s not impossible and many have succeeded before you. Get started by making the call. Call us now at (844) 299-0618.
