Hi PF  :hug: Yes cut a 2mg in half then half again so you then have 1/4 of an mg, and see how you go from there, and if that proves too much cut the 1/4 in half to make 1/8  of an mg. I started off stopping 1/4 of 2 mg pills but then had to go to 1/8 as it was too much after a while in the lower doses, I am now lower again and will probably  have to start cutting  out less again soon :)

Nope, half of 2mg is 1mg, half of 1mg is 1/2 mg.

That will give you .5mg.  From 6mg, that's a 8% cut.  That a pretty aggressive cut, but might be do-able.

 

You need to hold until your recover from the cut.  You'll know when.

builder is right, you want to stabilize as best as possible between cuts, and since Valium has such a long half life it can take sometimes over a week to feel the full effects of a cut.

For reference, lately I have needed to hold 3-4 weeks to stabilize between 0.5 mg cuts. I'm currently on 8.5 mg V. Maybe Nova meant to say cutting a pill in half and then half again is 1/4 a pill? Which is 0.5 mg when cutting a 2 mg pill as builder stated above.

How long have you been on 6mg? I generally don't cut when things are bad, only

When my symptoms are tolerable. If you want to cut 0.5 mg from your daily then you will

Need to cut your pill in 4 pieces (each piece is 0.5 mg).

Going with what hope said,  you would take two of the two mg pills (whole), half of a 2 mg pill and a quarter of a two mg pill which adds up to 5.5 mg of Valium. Recommend starting this when you are feeling relatively ok, perhaps after 2-3 weeks at your current dose.

Mirtazapine stopped working very quickly for me too when I used it a long time ago. People say it works better for sleep at lower doses even 3.75 mg?

I never tried seroquel because the side effects were too scary even when I was desperate, but other have had luck with it.

Trazodone felt like a heavy dose of benedryl and didnt help much for sleep.

 

The best thing that helps me with sleep is to know that there isnt anything I have to do to make it happen. It will happen when your body is ready. Is there anyone who can come stay with you for a week or two to help with your son? A relative or a friend? It was hard for me to ask for help, but once I did I found lots of help- even neighbors wanted to watch the kids for me (for free) when I really needed it.

 

Good luck and remember this will pass,

Are you still on the zopiclone? That also effects GABA and sleep. Looking at your sig there are a lot of different meds there. I think it took six weeks after my mirtazipine experiments for sleep to settle. Maybe no more valium cuts until things calm down a bit?

How did you feel at 8 mg diazepam? I am wondering if all the switching around has been hard on you, might be better to go back to a dose where you were stable and get some strength to restart the taper? I know going back is disappointing but going forward if you are feeling this awful is difficult too. There are some people who never feel like they stabilize during the taper and go forward anyway- not saying that to scare you, just that I have heard people succeed that way as well.

 

I believe olanazipine is seroquel? I read about the side effects of that drug when I was offered it and decided it wasnt for me.

 

Take care,

JKS

Sorry I dont have any other suggestions- maybe others will?

 

All I can tell you for sure is that even people who have been polydrugged for years and have very difficult tapers get better. It will get better.
