Is 4 mgs of temazepam too much to jump from?


[Cr...]

Recommended Posts

I've been tapering very slowly for 4 years. I started at 30 mgs of temazepam and I'm down to 4 mgs now (YAY!!!).  So suddenly the stand-in doctor who is covering for my doctor while she is away for a few months got twisted about my taper and started a ball rolling that ultimately culminated in my being told today that after my current liquid solution is gone they will only give me 6 more 30 mg capsules to finish my taper. I think I can do that ok but I am really so sick of the whole process that I wondered if 4 mgs is too much to jump from. For the last several months I have been reducing by 1/10th of a mg every 5 days and hanging in there well. If anyone has feedback it is much appreciated. Thanks, BBs

I know you're sick of tapering but if you have access to a few more pills, why not take advantage of this and jump at a lower dose?  The Valium equivalent of your dose would be about 2 mgs and Professor Ashton suggested jumping at 1 mg.  It's up to you of course but if it were me, I'd go for a lower dose and hopefully a smoother landing. 

 

I can see though why you might not want to switch from liquid to pills, it's going to be a hassle with in-approximate dosage reductions.  :(

Thank you both for replying. I am going to go as far as I can before jumping. It's weird how the desire to be done has gotten more intense the closer I am to the end. At least this happened near the end and not sooner. Something to be grateful for.

 

If I can be of any support I am here!

Same thing here. I'm close to the end - at .75 mg tapering to .5 mg - and I just want to be finished.  :thumbsup:
