I am a 30 yr old female with OCD and anxiety. I currently take Zoloft. Was prescribed Restoril in high doses for insomnia and anxiety for 3 yrs as I've always had trouble sleeping and difficulty shutting off my brain. Got to a point where I was sleeping so much my family and friends were getting concerned and decided to try to taper of it. Slow taper was going ok but I have a 1 yr old daughter and the lack of sleep was killing me. Went to a medical detox facility for 13 days that switched me over to liquid Valium given blindly in titrating doses every 4 hrs. Have been off since Mon and I'm crawling out of my skin. Talked to my docs who all said this is normal and to wait it out but I just don't know what to do. I just can't get my anxiety under control. Sleep is the only break I have from my brain. I don't know how to do this and I don't want to live like this. What if some people just need benzos? To level them out.
