I am a 34 year old male. My weight is 68 kg. I am married and have two kids. Because, of the disturbance made by my kids, I was not able to sleep well sometimes. So, I just started taking tablet Alprazolam 0.25 mg. Now I have been trying to gradually stop taking the medicine. So, I had 0.25 mg on the alternate days and in between 0.5 mg twice a day. I have a feeling that my body has got addicted to tablet Alprazolam. Because, from the day I stopped taking the tablet, I am not able to sleep even a little bit. Yesterday too, I tried without medicine. But, I could not sleep. Then at midnight, I had 0.5 mg and then slept for 4 hours. Please help. Thank you in advance.
