Hi. I am 16 weeks pregnant. 3 years ago i was diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder. I dont have depression. But i have been taking xanax for almost 3 years. My doc has got me to cut down, and i have done so well so far. But i need to come of them soon, altogether and i am worried.... i dont know if i can do it. I have given up smoking and drinking for the pregnancy, and that has helped. But i just get spacey alot of the time and very dizzy from the pregnancy which causes me to get anxious. ANy stories or suggestions would be great thanks.

yeah well i have always taken 5-6 half tablets a day, for 3 years of 0.5mg. Now i am on 3 half at 0.25 mg a day. In about 6 weeks time i plan to be off them. I think the most scary thing for me is at work and driving, i am not sure if i can get through with out a tablet... but i am being as positive as i can about it as i really want to be off them. i guess the anxiety just kicks in and tells me to be anxious about it :)
