Home Remedies for Xanax WithdrawalsYou might have heard of Ativan, Zoloft, and Lexapro as medication of choice for anxiety. But the most widely used anxiety medication is Xanax which is the trade name for Alprazolam. The drug comes from the Benzodiazepine class which can be used as treatment for general anxiety disorder, as well as insomnia, muscle tightness, alcohol detoxification, etc. Although, the drug provides a great benefit, once the person ends up taking Xanax, he might experience withdrawal symptoms which he might find difficult to deal with. In today’s post, we’ll tell you some home remedies for xanax withdrawals. But first, let’s take a look at what some of the symptoms felt when withdrawing from the use of drug.

Xanax Withdrawal Symptoms

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Convulsions
  • Insomnia
  • Tremors
  • Mood swings
  • Hallucination
  • Panic
  • Anxiety
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Drowsiness/ light headedness
  • Palpitations/ chest pain
  • Hot flushes

The side effects from xanax withdrawal can be very unpleasant, and can be detrimental as well especially in the case of convulsion. Oftentimes, the symptoms even get worse after withdrawing from its use.

Treatment for Xanax Withdrawals

Apparently, home remedies are focused on providing the patient comfort with the side effects of weaning from the drug. Family members should be aware of the withdrawal symptoms as well, and be prepared to provide safety for the patient in cases of convulsions.

As far as the treatment is concerned, the safer thing to do rather than a cold turkey is to taper down the dosage thus allowing your brain to adjust to the decreased amount of drugs. By tapering down the dosage, you’ll also be able to experience less symptoms of withdrawal.

Apparently, this drug is always prescribed by a physician prior to taking it. Therefore, it is always better to consult your doctor if you plan to pull yourself out of the use of the drug. Good luck!
