Do you have experience detoxing from Xanax? It's night 3 of being cold turkey for me and I just had a mini panic attack.

1mg a day for a week or two? I'd be surprised you'd even have ANY withdrawal symptoms, much less seizures.
How long were you on 1.5 a day for?.
Xanax withdrawal can include a host of possible symptoms. Severity of the depends on how high the ending dose was, and how long the drug was taken.
Xanax, the brand name for the drug alprazolam, is a common medication for the treatment of anxiety and panic disorders. It has both sedative and hypnotic properties to make users feel relaxed and quickly eliminate feelings of anxiety. As a central nervous system depressant of the benzodiazepine variety, it works by slowing down heart rate and promoting a feeling of calm and peace.
Many prescription medications, even those that are not considered to be addictive, produce withdrawal symptoms when a person stops taking them.
Prolonged and regular use of Xanax can lead to addiction. Consequently, any attempt at quitting Xanax results in withdrawal symptoms that.
An attempt at self-detoxification from Xanax at home is not recommended. Self- detox can be dangerous because of lack of appropriate and adequate understanding of the Xanax withdrawal symptoms and their management.
Choice of appropriate medication--it's timing, dose and duration--all require an in-depth understanding of the issue and relevant experience.
Physiological dependence on benzodiazepines is accompanied by a withdrawal syndrome which is typically characterized by sleep disturbance, irritability.

The second pattern is the full-blown withdrawal syndrome, usually lasting 10-14 days; finally, a third pattern may represent the return of anxiety symptoms which then persist until some form of treatment is instituted. Dependence on alcohol or other sedatives may increase the risk of benzodiazepine dependence, but it has proved difficult to demonstrate unequivocally differences in the relative abuse potential of individual benzodiazepines. Instances are also reported within the high-dosage category of more serious developments such as seizures and psychotic reactions. Physiological dependence on benzodiazepines is accompanied by a withdrawal syndrome which is typically characterized by sleep disturbance, irritability, increased tension and anxiety, panic attacks, hand tremor, sweating, difficulty in concentration, dry wretching and nausea, some weight loss, palpitations, headache, muscular pain and stiffness and a host of perceptual changes. Withdrawal phenomena appear to be more severe following withdrawal from high doses or short-acting benzodiazepines. Physiological dependence on benzodiazepines can occur following prolonged treatment with therapeutic doses, but it is not clear what proportion of patients are likely to experience a withdrawal syndrome. The most common is a short-lived "rebound" anxiety and insomnia, coming on within 1-4 days of discontinuation, depending on the half-life of the particular drug. Withdrawal from normal dosage benzodiazepine treatment can result in a number of symptomatic patterns. It is also unknown to what extent the risk of physiological dependence is dependent upon a minimum duration of exposure or dosage of these drugs.
I had two seizures, without any withdrawal symptoms, twice. The second one nearly cost me my life. I was using much less than you, one time.
