Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
From the description of your problem, it appears that you have developed a benzodazepine dependence. Restyl is just the brand name for alprazolam. So, you are actually taking two 0.25mg doses of alprazolam.
Since you have been taking these medicines for a very long time, suddenlt stopping then will result in withdrawal symptoms
and rebound anxiety
. Hence, they need to be tapered down very gradually and stopped. So, I would suggest that you consult a psychiatrist
for a detailed evaluation and further management. There are effective psychological therapies which can help you handle your anxiety and stress
without the necessity for medication.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
