So for anyone that has done it, I am on 2mg of xanax and want to get off as quickly as possible but with as few side effects as possible. I do not want to miss any work. So how fast can I drop before I start to have alot of problems. I know it differs for everyone but from experience, how much can be cut. I already know 1mg was too much. I have been on aproximently 12 weeks, or three months.
