Lorazepam to diazepam


[Sc...]

Recommended Posts

I’ve been on diazepam 7.5 mgs since 9-11-20. I didn’t crossover. Doctor just stopped the lorazepam. I’ve had bad withdrawals since then. But I had reached tolerance with the lorazepam. I don’t know what’s going on. Today doctor raised diazepam to 10mgs. I don’t know what’s happening. Should I just wait it out? Will my body adjust? Why so much more anxiety?

I'm so sorry you're having rough withdrawal symptoms.  When you switch to a new benzo it can take a while to adjust to the new one.  It probably would have been easier on your system if your doctor had done a gradual switch to diazepam.

I went from ALprazolam to Diazapam and my anxiety is so high yet the drug makes you sleepy an depressed.  Do you find the same thing?  Although, I had a friend that gradually crossed over and her anxiety is through the roof too.  Diazapam is longer lasting but not as strong as the other benzos.  What mg of Diazapam are you on?

Yes I've asked it that group. And I was on 7.5 mgs of diazepam since last Friday but pdoc upped it to 10 mgs today. Thank you both. Now I will see in the next few days, maybe.
