I’m currently taking a benzo every 3 days, down from 1 each day.
It was a rough ride getting to this point withdrawal wise. I first started taking a benzo every other day for 2 weeks.
Now taking a benzo every 3rd day for 2 weeks. Then every 4 days etc etc.
Edit : I’m on Clonazapam, which has a long half life.
When I quit school I got so relaxed I forgot to take it for two days… then on the third day I remembered and took half so I woulnd’t get withdrawals, now I’m at half every two days.
I tried taking half a day as suggested by my psychiatrist, but had horrible withdrawals. So far, the ‘Skipping days’ method seems to be working out better for me.
So long as I make changes slowly, i.e. every 2 weeks.
Well done on being on half every 2 days.
Arghhhhhhh, it’s going to takes ages to wean myself off at this rate . But slowly seems to be the best way for me.
Good luck, hope you can really tackle that anxiety as well. I want the benzos to become an sos thing, not an addiction
good luck, I take benzos as needed. doctor wants me to talke everyday but I don’t. just this week I went four days without it and took one today.
