Can Detoxing From this Drug Kill You?

Xanax Withdrawal

Xanax withdrawal is one of the worst experiences on this earth. I know because I’ve experienced it firsthand. I’ve felt the ridiculously uncomfortable, and in some cases fatal, Xanax withdrawal symptoms.

To put it another way, I’d rather be attacked by a bear than endure the hell that is Xanax detox. At least I could climb a tree and be safe during a bear attack. Unfortunately, there’s not much relief from Xanax withdrawal symptoms.

Of course, seeking professional help for any and all symptoms of Xanax detox is a must. Not only will a medical facility offer some comfort and relief, but they’ll be available if any severe Xanax withdrawal symptoms occur. These are things like seizure and cardiac arrest.

In fact, find a list of Xanax’s more common withdrawal symptoms below.

Why is Xanax called “freeze-dried alcohol?”

Xanax Withdrawal Symptoms

Xanax withdrawal symptoms can range from mild to life threatening. Again, seeking professional help for all of the below symptoms is important. You never know when something innocuous could turn into something serious.

Xanax withdrawal symptoms include:

• Irritability
• Sweating
• Muscle & Bone Pain
• Tremors
• Insomnia
• Extreme Anxiety & Depression
• Disorientation
• Nausea & Vomiting
• Hallucinations

None of those sound too pleasant! Fear not, though, because there’s hope and lots of it. Xanax withdrawal symptoms aren’t nearly as bad as they sound!
