I came here to see if anyone can tell me if its normal to experience agoraphobia fear of leaving the house for fear id have a massive panic attack and fear of public places during benzo tapering. Like I am not even finished my taper off the Valium. I currently am down to 0.5mg of Valium in the morning and 2mg of Valium in the evening and the last few days have been difficult to get out. I was out with a few friends whilst they were drinking. I wasn't obviously, about an hour in I got very weak and could feel the senses of an attack and then today I could not leave the house is this normal during tapering. Anyone?
