I have successfully gone down to 10mg over the past few months and tried to go down to 5mg last night. I awoke this morning feeling really awful. I am a single mom with a 9 year old and I don't know how people do this! I couldn't function, I felt like a totally different person. I had to take 5 mg this morning to be able to function. I don't have access to a good doctor who understands the taper method where I live (small town in Mexico) so I could really use some help. I only have 10mg tabs so they are hard to cut accurately... I don't drink or take any other medications but REALLY have to get off valium!! Thanks in advance for any advice and/or support.
hi. I have been going through a benzodiazepines taper for almost 8 months. it is not fun. there are a couple people on this site who have been very helpful and supportive. it's very hard but rewarding. just take it slow and only you know how you are really feeling. its to bad you don't have a Dr. to help you. I'm with you dear. ill be keeping you in my prayers. good luck to you.
