Regret Ever Taking Xanax

I was on Xanax ER for 3 yrs for muscle spasms from an accident. When I didn't need it, I was weaned off too fast by my doctor. The withdrawal symptoms I went through were unbearable and I just wanted to die.
5 months later I have a pounding heart beat constantly. When it gets so bad I have trouble breathing and chest pain, I must take a short acting Xanax to stop it.
I have read that some withdrawal symptoms can last over a yr.
Xanax should never be prescribed for long term. I hate my doc for keeping me on this horrible drug for so long.
