Today marks the 21st day since I last took Ativan. No more benzos for me. The first week was horrible for withdrawal symptoms but it’s gotten much better. My tremors are gone. Anxiety is less. Hooray for 3 weeks.
YAY! You’re so strong! I’m happy for you!
Thank you @Shmookitty !
Well done that stuff is addictive and your a strong person to have quit them
Thanks Chris. They are extremely addictive and the withdrawal from them is some of the worst on this planet. You can die from it. Thankfully I’m past the worst and feeling better.
thats great they hand them out like sweets when your psychotic and in a ward
Glad I’m not in a psych ward then, I’m scared of benzos.
About two months ago i took my last Clozapine. I had taken it for 9 years and the difference is mind blowing.
@Sethunya did you have bad withdrawal symptoms when you stopped taking it?
I had some withdrawal when I did. I’m glad i did though.
Thanks @FatMama hope all is well with you
Going quite well today. We are trying to stay cool.
Good job man! Benzo withdrawl is no joke, glad youre getting on without that stuff
@zwolfgang I know, you can die from it in the early stages. I’m glad I got past the worst. I’m feeling much better. I kicked the habit!
Thanks by the way dude!
@FatMama it’s super hot here in Ontario also.
