Hello chicocat, welcome to BenzoBuddies,


Congratulations on starting your taper, it can be a challenging process but its wonderful to be free of this medication.  What is your taper rate, we suggest reducing by about 5-10% every couple of weeks to hopefully remain functional but using your symptoms to guide you is the best way to approach this. 


I'll provide some resources and links to help you but please let us know how we can help you.
