I ended up in the hospital with a high blood alcohol level. They gave me an IV to replentish fluids etc., then sent me home with 15 5mg diazapam. I took the first 10 on day one following the incident, as I was in pretty bad shape (shakes, anxiety, etc.). It's now day two and I'm feeling a little better. I've been rationing the remaining 5 pills, but I'm sure I'll take the last two before bed. I'm wondering what to expect for tomorrow, seeing as my diazapam use was short-term. Any ideas what to expect?
Hi, a standard alcohol detox is over 7 - 10 days, depending on the level of alcohol intake and period of alcohol use. You should contact your doctor or return to the hospital to complete a controlled detox, with specific instructions, and a new prescription of Diazepam, or Librium... I have done detoxes in the past and had to attend a clinic daily for my medication and to check my BP/HR/RR, etc. This is a much safer way to do it if you are able to get access to this type of help/support?
