Valium Taper


Recommended Posts

I've just started a valium taper, I have been taking 10 mg x 2 per day, I have been on and off valium for about 5 years during various difficult life events.  I'm determined to taper off and I know it will take a long time.  I tapered off an SSRI I had been taking for about 9 years - it took a couple of attempts but the second attempt worked as I went much slower - that was about 10 years ago.
