Xanax (known generically as alprazolam) is a fast-acting prescription medication used to treat panic attacks and other anxiety disorders. Part of the benzodiazepine class of drugs, Xanax is intended as a short-term treatment because extended use can lead to addiction. People who abruptly stop taking Xanax after prolonged use often experience painful physical and mental symptoms known as Xanax withdrawal. Without medical help, Xanax withdrawal can be life-threatening. Symptoms include vomiting, tremors, and potentially fatal seizures.

XANAX WITHDRAWAL TIMELINE

Heroin Timeline

Below is a summary of how long the timeline may be, and with help, the Xanax schedule for detox does not have to be so unbearable. It is important to keep in mind that everyone is different and symptoms may be more or less severe than others, as well as more prolonged than others depending on how long the benzo was taken, how often it was taken, and what the dosage taken was for the user.

Symptoms may appear within a few hours to three days. These symptoms include intense anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches and tremors, low blood pressure, possible seizures, and even death.

Symptoms will be on a deep rise at this point. From an increased heart rate and sweating to nausea, depression, and panic attacks, this is definitely a painful time. The help of a medical professional at a detox center can ease the deep and hellish pain of these symptoms. For help, call our 24-7 helpline at (855) 619-8070 today.

Insomnia may have lessened, and physical symptoms may have faded. At this point, for some, post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) may ensue. This consists of random bouts of the symptoms of withdrawal in random periods of time from here on out. It can pop up anywhere from a few months to a year after withdrawal depending on the person. But as long as the person in withdrawal does not pick up a drink or a drug no matter what, these symptoms will lessen and pass over time along with the person’s dedication to recovery.
