Desoxyn,


Not sure which benzo's you're taking or the daily amount, but I'm currently doing a very slow taper off my clonazepam on an outpatient basis. My pdoc, is using the Ashton manual as a guide for the taper. Google it. Of course success with the taper is entirely dependent on my ability to stay with the prescribed dose each day.



Just know that it is possible to get off them without going through a hellish withdrawal.

Awesome news bizi and splits! 6 weeks, 6 months - I should have posted 2 days ago when it was 666 days (cue Gregorian chant music). Still smooth sailing lately as far as ny issues with urges or whatnot, though the job is still in peril.

Doing really good. I haven't craved any alcohol or cigarettes (even though there is a fresh pack in my bag). I think it's more of a "out of sight, out of mind" thing at this point.

Thank you. This guide gave me a lot of good information. I must have been taking around 1.5mg xanax a day for a month. I'll try to cold turkey. If that doesn't work then I'll tell my doctor the evils of which I have done...

If I have over 125 extra Xanax and I am prescribed 2 a day, then I donít think I have a huge problem. I pray to God my doctor never decides to take me off it because it will be a disaster. I never had an issue when I was on Ativan for 8 years. I developed a dependency on Xanax a couple weeks after starting it.

I tried going one day without it and I had horrible anxiety along with diarrhea as well. It wasnít good and I honestly donít know how I can go off it completely if I have to.

It's been 3 days since I took any benzo. So I'm doing good. I just have to be careful.. cuz i need it for panic attacks..

I think I'd end up in the psych ward if I didn't have the occasional benzo to stop me from going insane by not being able to stand the panic attacks any longer..

Desoxyn, do you know what triggered the binge?
