Hello  tnt815 :hug: Welcome to BenzoBuddies.


Sorry your having a rough time, you will get plenty of support here. You have made a good decision to taper off these drugs, you are going to be okay, it will get  better.  Our caring members here will be happy to share their taper/withdrawal experiences with you. 


The generally accepted taper rate is 5-10%, every 10 to 14 days.  This rate can always be adjusted to meet your needs.  A slow taper will help to keep withdrawal symptoms manageable.  Although symptoms can be severe at times, please know that they are temporary.


Here are some useful links.


The Ashton Manual is an invaluable resource.
