coming of bromazepam, finally


Recommended Posts

Hey ,


I joined this forum because i will taper from bromazepam. I also go to a psychiatrist 1 times a month. I think it is wise to get as much support as i can get. I have been taking bromazepam(lexotan) for 10years or so . I  am on a low dose now 4.5 mg/day .


I tapered 0.75 mg last week so my starting dose was 5.25 mg

That is 5.25 mg each day divided in 3 doses (1.5+1.5+2.25).


I would like to taper next dose(-0.75 mg) wednesday 28/9. I dont think i will need to swap to a more long acting because bromazepam is not very short acting,i think. It is a low dose but i have been taking it for so long and i am very sensitive to  drugs. The first week taper was difficult, insomnia and irritation and just difficulty with  social interactions . Ok jobwise because its a fysical job and i dont use my brain that much there :D just tha muscles. So lets do this  :D
