Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


I am glad you found us today. The recommended reduction rate is 5 to 10 percent every two weeks. Rather than one week on one week off the best way to taper is to find the lowest dose you feel stable on and then begin a taper from there.



You might like to check out The Ashton Manual it is an authoritative source on what to expect in withdrawal and recovery.  Dr. Ashton is an expert in the field. 


Please feel free to post to any of the dedicated boards, we have a wonderful community of people here, who will give sound advice. Members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal and are more than willing to share their experiences.
