Detailed Answer:

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

Xanax can cause withdrawal symptoms if taken for a long time. It has to be gradually reduced in dose to prevent the withdrawal sympto.s and should never be stopped abruptly.
Chlordiazepoxide is another drug which can help in xanax withdrawal.
If the withdrawal is causing so much proble its better you come off it in hospital.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
