Welcome to BenzoBuddies, ItIsJustMe.  Glad you've found us.


I'm sorry for what you're going through right now.  Hopefully your new doctor will prescribe Valium long enough to let you taper slowly and carefully.  I would suggest reading over the Ashton Manual (link below) and printing some of the information and taper schedules for your doctor to look at.


As far as finding a prescribing doctor, you might want to post in Withdrawal Support about finding a doctor in your general area who might be helpful during a taper.


Here is the link to the The Ashton Manual, which is an authoritative source on what to expect during withdrawal and recovery, authored by Dr. C. Heather Ashton, who is an expert in the field. It provides a great deal of information that can be very reassuring during any stage of this process, including a list of common symptoms with helpful explanations on the reasons for their existence.
