Benzo handling in Denmark


Recommended Posts



I am taping Down from 20 mg Diazapam which I have been taken for 10 years.


Now I am at week 6. - and right now I am having a hard time.


The first 4 weeks was easy - Diazapam can be in your body for 30 days if you use them reguarly.


I am beeing taped Down with short (5 hrs halftime) OxyBenz - I have 4 pills a day.


I thinking I may be tappering too hard (over 18 weeks) because yesterday I had a "panic-attack" - it was the WORST I have ever felt. And I never got souch attacks before.


I the beginnng of the night I was beeing scared of the television - then suddenly it felt like I was having a heartattack. Then i emmedely eat 2 pills. But the pills dident have time to work.


So I was facing about 20 minutes og panicattack - I know it can happend under a downtaping. But I will not face it Again without having the right to use the emergency brake.


I hope my doctor will call me back today. Thanks god I live in Denmark, where all health care are free. I have the right to 10 private sessions at a psykoterpist almost free (about 20 USD pr session, rest paid by state)


God damm pills - please tell me about your experinces with panic-attacks !!


Have a nice weekend

Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


I am glad you found us today. The feeling of panic is a classic symptom of withdrawal. Are you tapering too quickly? The recommended reduction rate is 5 to 10 percent every two weeks. Since Diazapam has such a very long half life, it can sometimes take a week or two to feel the full effects of a cut.

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.
