Xanor Sr 0.5mg

wil Says:

i have depression and anxiety, been using xanor sr 0.5mg for 1 1/2 years, twice a day, 0.5mgx2, one in the morning and one in the evening. i dont want to use it anymore and started taking one a day. i have been experiencing headaces, dizziniss. Is this normal and how long will these simptoms go on? Can i half the tablets and drink 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening. The reason being that i just don't feel myself and feel uneasy on my feet, i bump into the walls and sometimes feel that it make me feel more anxiety. i feel that i am not in control.

Hello, Will! How are you feeling?

Xanor contains the active ingredient Alprazolam, which is a benzodiazepine and this class of medications has the tendency to be habit forming, with long-term use, so yes, withdrawal effects are quite normal when you lower the dosage or stop taking it. There is also a risk of seizures.

Thus, it would really be best if you consulted your doctor for an appropriate and safe way to taper off of this medication.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Been on Ativan 2.5 mg twice daily for 41 years. Now suddenly not available in my country. My GP has put me on Xanor 0.5 SR. once daily. (Tranquipam's effect is poor and although generic, does not work.)
Will Xanor 0,5 SR be better option?

0.5 mg of Xanor is certainly not the equivalent of 5.0 mg of Ativan?
