W.s. On vertin medication for 10 days and was prescribed alprax 0.25 for anxiety for 10 nights. Now doctor has asked me to take 0.25 alprax alternate night for 5 days and then stop. Is it the right course for stopping alprax.

Depends on your anxiety. Alprazolam causes dependence if taken for long term. Better to follow your doc's advice. Good luck.
