She is drastically (stupidly, IMO) cutting her off and wants her off within a couple months. My friend wants to know if there is some kind of grandfather clause or something if you've been on benzos for so long that she can stay on or not go down so quickly. She's also on methadone. Isn't there a law against such a rigorous taper? Thank you!
Yo! Ya, Docs cannot /usually will not Cold Turkey yor ass, unless you get caught Doc Shopping or put their DEA# in Jeopardy. Sounds like shes bein tapered down in a Noninhumane way, right??? Lucky for the friend, Ordering schedule IV Benzos online isnt too difficult. Be careful and Il help ya w any info I can. Coo? JUSTIN
I was on this for 20 years too. My doctor said to taper down by 1/4 a pill per month and see how it goes. I had terrible withdrawal; extremely low and high heart rates and blood pressure, the blood vessels in my eye burst, nausea and vomiting. I had to stop at minus 1/2 a pill ... Sudden withdrawal on this medication can cause seizures and sudden death. It's serious stuff. Check with a doctor who understands. Good luck to your friend... I've heard also that you can taper down with diezapam... but haven't tried it.
