    Yes, you are right. I do think it helps not to make a big deal about it, though. I worried for months about dealing with withdrawals and I just got to a point where I'd had enough of it and that motivated me to jump that final hurdle.

    Halfway through tapering last year I ended up very unwell again and still don't know if it was withdrawals or mirtazipine pooping out, which I'm told is very common.

    I guess my advice would be not to spend too much energy looking for withdrawal symptoms and then you may not notice them. I mentioned the adding in of quetiapine as I feel it has really helped as I sleep ok instead of not at all, which we all know makes anxiety worse.

    Just keep at it and chip away slowly and you will get there

    When I came off xanax (twice) I used acupuncture to handle withdrawal symptoms and not being able to sleep. It worked. Only problem is that its ridiculously expensive outside Asia

    I was on Xanax, too, but don't remember having any withdrawal symptoms. By far, Clonazepam was the worst to come off of. Zoloft was an unpleasant one to discontinue, too.

    I agree with Shaz - just keep chipping away at it slowly. Know and accept that there will be days when you're going to be feeling poorly, but you've made the right decision for your overall health, and you should be proud of yourself.
