    I recently started having really bad panic attacks again and after 2 years  of being off of Xanax I started taking it. Then I found out I was pregnant so I have to get off. It is hard because I think it is the hormones that sparked this up. I have gotten down to taking <1/2 of a .25mg 3x a day. Today I have only take less than .25 mg total in 2 doses of a little less than 1/2 of a .25mg. I was wondering how low I would have to get before I could just quit without having any additional anxiety from withdrawl. I am unable to sleep at tonight and feel anxious and a little surreal form not taking the third dose today. I am trying to do this gradually but as quick as I can for my baby's sake. Though I have to maintain balance to care for my 16 mnth old daughter as well. I also would like to know how long will it be before it is completely out of my system so I can have an idea of what the full effect of not having it is and if I can handle it yet.
