Dear Kristin,

Thanks for using health care magic.

From the available description it appears that you are dependent on xanax. You can try to stop it with gradual reduction of doses in tune of almost 20% per week. If this you have already tried than you can ask your psychiatrist who will prescribe some medication which reduces the withdrawal symptoms of xanax and once you are out of the acute situation the newer medication can be withdrawn without much discomfort.

Thanks
