Drop down to 3 mg today. I'm a little nervous about it, but hope it will be ok. Still no trouble sleeping.

Thanks Guinness,


I slept ok, despite the lowered dose, but today I have a headache and earaches, so I'm hitting withdrawal sooner than I did on the last cut. Hope it doesn't get worse in the next couple of days.

Taking some mild pain killers might help with the pain for the moment. Maybe don't drop the dose until the pain goes away.

Today has been the worst. Headache, blocked ears and earaches, and generally feeling really tense throughout my body. I'm definitely in fight or flight mode.

Hold at your dosage then go down a smaller amount.

Yep, holding is part of the plan. I'm staying at each new level for at least 2 weeks so I have about another 10 days before I'm scheduled to decrease again.


Happily I'm feeling a bit better today, just a slight headache and earaches.

thanks stillcrazy - I'll look into them.


I've been spending a lot of time on the Benzobuddies site, and it's really helping me make sense of a lot of what I'm experiencing. For example for the past 4 weeks, I've been dealing with severe dry mouth. I thought it was just that the air in my apartment was drier than normal, since it's winter. Turns out it's a fairly common side effect of withdrawal. Also people have been reporting extreme nausea and worse gastric reflux, both of which I'm also experiencing.



It helps to see what other symptoms people are having as it makes me feel better, knowing what's going on.
