Hi,  I'm here for hearing others experiencing symptoms similar to mine.  I took a non prescribed benzo medication for one year,  and been off it for almost 5 months now.  I quit cold turkey.  Looking to get all the info I can from here.

Welcome to the forum, Getting offenzos1.


Glad you've found BenzoBuddies for support in your recovery.  Our bodies don't really care where the benzodiazepine came from (and neither do we  :)), but the withdrawal and recovery are equal opportunity misery-makers, aren't they.


Here are a couple of places to start posting.  At five months, you may find more support for your level of recovery in Post Withdrawal rather than Cold Turkey, so here are both options:


Post Withdrawal Support

Cold Turkey, Detox and Rapid Withdrawal


When you have a chance, I highly recommend that you take a look at 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.
