Stopping use of a drug can be a frightening experience. This is especially true if you have an addiction to a severe benzodiazepine such as Xanax. That’s because Xanax withdrawal symptoms can be extremely difficult to deal with.
You should never attempt to withdrawal from Xanax addiction on your own. We know it’s tempting to go at it alone. However, only a professional treatment center can offer you specific treatment for Xanax withdrawal symptoms. This will make the process of detox more peaceful and enjoyable.
Can You Quit Xanax Cold Turkey?
Xanax is a serious benzodiazepine that can cause strong addiction. If you’re currently struggling with Xanax addiction, quitting “cold turkey” could bring about serious withdrawal symptoms. These may be painful, uncomfortable, and sometimes even dangerous. As a result, you should never attempt to quit Xanax cold turkey.
Furthermore, trying to quit by yourself will often lead immediately to relapse. This is because the severe discomfort of the withdrawal symptoms may be too much for you to bear. Over time, these relapses are hard on you mentally and physically. Numerous relapses can be difficult to find your way out of.
Xanax Withdrawal Symptoms
Again, withdrawal symptoms aren’t mild. In fact, they can be extremely painful and frightening. The following is a list of the most common withdrawal symptoms associated with Xanax:
- Heart palpitations
- Stiffness and muscle pain
- Panic attacks and anxiety
- Sleep disturbances
- Nausea and stomach pain
- Headaches and migraines
As you can see, it’s a shock to your system to attempt to withdraw from Xanax without help. Weaning yourself off of the Xanax completely on your own is also dangerous. Your brain’s normal neurotransmitter production levels need to be reset through comprehensive professional withdrawal care.
