Xanax detox involves the presentation of intensely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking Xanax, a drug from the benzodiazepine class.
One of the most prescribed psychotherapeutic medications, Xanax is typically used for the short-term treatment of anxiety disorders and panic disorders. Regrettably, all benzos have a strong potential for abuse, with tolerance quickly building, and addiction often following.
If you have been prescribed Xanax, abruptly discontinuing use is not only dangerous, but possibly deadly. Your doctor is unlikely to prescribe Xanax for more than one month, and you should only ever use this medication as prescribed. Instead, consider detoxing from Xanax at a licensed medical detox center.
