I have a long and complicated history lasting nearly 40 years. The outcome is that I now think I am in withdrawal from Temazapam but doctors here in the UK don't believe this is possible.
I am not sure if low doses of this drug followed by stopping it three months ago can cause the symptoms I am suffering? I had only 10 times 10 mg a month plus Valium as back up occasionally. I didn't take these on a daily basis. I have had this regime probably for nearly 30 years.
I started having symptoms before stopping the temazapam.......severe anxiety, panic attacks, weakness, pain throughout my body, sweating, palpitations, diarrhoea, social withdrawal etc etc. I am a 66 year old woman who would like to have the rest of her life drug free. I am finding it difficult to get any support whatsoever for this as my GP doesn't believe the drugs are in my blood any more therefore all my symptoms are psychological. I am a high professional, give talks, lead a happy life and just don't believe I can be like this without a physical cause.
My question is......Is the low dose of Temazapam likely to have caused my problems after so long? I feel quite lonely in trying to find answers as there's just nobody who believes me except my husband.
