Hi - I'm 57 years old and have been taking xanax for sleep for about 3 years. I'm sure I'm addicted because I get extreme anxiety without it. I was wondering if anyone out there was able to wean themselves off this drug. I have osteopenia, am extremely active (lift weights, practice yoga, run, walk and paddle board) and don't want to increase my risk for bone loss! Thanks and hope to hear from the group.

Also after a recent trip to the hospital I was told by a nurse that my magnesium level is very low. Anyone else experiencing this?
