Withdrawing from a drug can be a scary experience. The professionals at Granite Recovery Centers can help with Xanax withdrawal treatment in New Hampshire. Below is more information on the Xanax withdrawal timeline. While withdrawing from taking Xanax, knowing what to expect can make the experience less scary.
Xanax Withdrawal Timeline
There are a variety of Xanax withdrawal symptoms. Some of these last a short time while others last longer. During the first 1 to 3 days from the last dose, a client may experience seizures, body tremors, mood swings, feelings of nervousness, heart rate increasing, vomiting, lack of sleep, and feeling nauseous.
After the 3rd day of withdrawal, other symptoms arise. These symptoms are irritability, withdrawal, depression, racing thoughts, and having a hard time sleeping. This stage of withdrawal usually lasts from 4 to 7 days long. This ends the first week of Xanax withdrawal.
After the seventh day, symptoms last around a week long. Symptoms for week two are anxiety, cravings, mood swings, and depression. During week three, the client may experience anxiety, agitation, irritability, and a decrease in cravings. At week four, clients may still have anxiety and depression, but also sleep better and feel more energized.
How Long Does Xanax Withdrawal Last?
One question a client or loved one may ask is, how long does Xanax withdrawal last? This varies between patients, but the Xanax withdrawal timeline usually lasts around a month. Some clients experience what is called post-acute withdrawal syndrome, also known as PAWS, which can last anywhere between 3 and 6 months after the client has stopped using Xanax.
