Health QuestionsCategory: MedicationsHow to get off anxiety med when going on AD
jzzlvr13 asked 2 years ago

I have been taking xanax, 2mg daily for about a year for anxiety. I am now taking Zoloft for anxiety and depression and the xanax. The depression is better but how does one get off the xanax? I know you shouldn’t go cold turkey. Should I continue to take both and gradually lessen the xanax? Should I switch to klonopin which has a longer half life?  I don’t want to have to continue the xanax if the Zoloft gets rid of the anxiety, but how do you know which is doing what?  
Thanks,
