Hi Michael. For your own safety and well-being you should never, never, never go off Xanax on your own without your physician’s counsel and guidance. Sudden or rapid stopping Xanax at daily doses of 4 mg or more can cause moderate to severe withdrawal and this is not a trivial thing.
I’d suggest you make a doctor’s appointment. Your doctor can give your guidance and help you create a tapering schedule that fits your needs. Doctors can also refer you to someone who specializes in treating Xanax dependence and withdrawal.
