Yrs I've gotten up to 15 to 20 2mg bars a day. I went into a seizure the first night I was there and put in the hospital for the rest of the week. They gave me nothing to keep my body from shaking compulsively & I couldn't deal with how uncontrollable my body and mind became to where I decided to leave and I'm trying to detox myself at home which is really hard. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should do this?
It is not uncommon to have a seizure when abruptly stopping a long term benzo, like xanax, habit. It is going to be hard doing this on your own. You are past the danger zone, but will be adjusting for some time to come. I recommend a website called benzobuddies.com. It is specifically for helping people in your position.
Dear barbicour, That sounds sooo unbelievable that they did not help you in the Hospital after your seizure. And they didn't give you any medication?
You could have died..I would get a good lawyer and Dr. to help you in the
right, humane way. I am very serious about this! Hang in there and take
my advice. That is my personal thinking for you, barb!
