Hello greenfrog :hug:  Welcome to BenzoBuddies!. 


We are glad you found us, you will get plenty of support and advice on your Alepam (oxazepam) taper. We have a great bunch of people here, our members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal, and will share their experiences with you.


The best way to minimize withdrawal symptoms is a slow and careful taper.  It gives your central nervous system time to adjust to each reduction.  It is suggested to taper no more than 5-10% every 10-14 days.  This can be adjusted based on how you feel.


I would suggest that you read the Ashton Manual, an excellent resource about these types of drugs and how to withdraw. It was written by an expert in the field.


I'll leave you a few links:


The Ashton Manual


Withdrawal Support


Substitution Taper Plans


General Taper Plans


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”


Welcome aboard
