I was on xanax for about 3 years .05mg for sleep issues related to anxiety.I did not take it evey night and had no problems doing so. As is so often the case the .05 stopped being effective so I upped it to 1 mg.I quickly discovered that if I did not take it every night I had withdrawl. I researched the Ashton method but it seems to be more suited for those on high dosages taken throughout the day.I asked my dr for an equivalent dose of diazepam.I am currently taking 10mg at night which is equivalent to the .05 of xanax,so I am back to the lower dose.Iplan a very slow 1mg reduction and see how it goes. My main problem is extreme fatigue, some days are better than others. I have been on the diazapam for 10 days. My question is is this a common reaction and does it get better with time?
