Started last nite.


[Al...]

Recommended Posts

My usual habit has been to take .25 Xanax around 6 pm and my 30 mg of Temazepam at 9 pm.  Because I have habituated and have insomnia,  I usually wake around 1 AM, take another .25 of X and listen to sleep videos on YouTube until morning with broken sleep pattern.  Last nite I broke the second dose of X into a half which gave me .125 and Im up at 5 AM.  Does this sound like a doable plan and how long should I stay on this taper until I cut the first dose in half at 5 pm?  When Im done with the X Ill tackle the T.  I hope I am on the right track here.

It's me again.  It looks like you started on the right track. Temazepam 30 mg = 1 mg of X.  So your first cut, if my math is right, is 8.3%.  Well within the 5 - 10% reduction recommended.  I'd wait about a couple of weeks and see how I felt before proceeding.

 

Your second cut should also be between 5 - 10% and also based on your symptoms, if any.  So you'd want to make the calculation based on your reduced dose (i.e. 1.5 - .125 = 1.37).
