12 mg of poison


[Li...]

Recommended Posts

About 2.5 months ago I went inpatient after passing out due to the amount of Benzo's I was over prescribed and taking for a life long panic disorder. I walked in the hospital taking 12mg of Benzo's and left a week later on 2mg. This was obviously a rapid cut in my dosage. I enjoy reading everyone's stories to know that I'm not alone, but most members were had only 1 or 2mg to taper off from. Is there anyone out there that is cutting or has successfully tapered off of a HIGH dose of Benzo's?

Hi there

That must of been really hard going inpatient and cutting that much in a week!! How did you pass out? Did you get a high tolerance and gradually end up on such high doses? I was taking a high dose for a long time and it took four years to eventually completely stop taking benzo's,it's been the most horrible few years I'll be honest but hoping to see some improvements. Hope you manage to come off completely,and you don't have too much trouble, I've been having panic episodes recently and can't seem to shake off a constant state of anxiety. I couldn't live without 100mg diazepam every day when I think back to how desperate that feeling of dependence was I'm glad to be free eventually,it's come at a cost though! Good luck ❤️
