Hi wooralla :hug: Welcome to Benzobuddies


Very well done to you with your tapering so far, it’s not easy to do on your  own.  You will get much support here from people who know what you are going through.    I had head pressure, as well as other scary symptoms.  I got myself checked , just to be safe, I was scared too.   


Tapering slow can help to minimize withdrawal effects.  It is generally recommended to taper no more than 5-10% every 10-14 days.  This is a guideline and it is ok to adjust this schedule for your own comfort.


We have a great community here of knowledgeable and friendly people who understand this process.  They will be willing to share their experience with you.  Feel free to ask questions so that members can respond


Are you familiar with the  Ashton Manual , it is an excellent resource for information about these medications and gives a lot of information about withdrawal/tapering. 


Here are some helpful links:

If you would be so kind as to add a signature (history of meds/doses etc) it will help members give you relevant advice this link will show you how to”Create a signature”
