I have been taking Xanax (alprazolam) for 10 years now. Is it possible to switch to Melatonin?

I'm not an MD, but there is no comparison between the two and I don't believe you could switch and get any type of favorable result.

Please discuss this with whoever is prescribing your Xanax.

Just remember that whatever you decide, you should be guided by someone with a solid level of experience and be sure to ask lots of questions.
