I think I tried to quit too early in my taper


[ho...]

Recommended Posts

I am presently  on Valium .5 once in the morning .Doing fine with that . I know its a low dose but its working .  Have been doing a  gradual taper for approx.  every ten days. This time I only did 6 days didnt take anything yesterday and I woke up last night several times and feel like Im having wd again. Do I need to stay on the .5 for 10 -14 days before I decide to quit. Im really scared. I want this to be over. Maybe I stopped too soon. thx Marilyn

You probably did stop too soon, Marilyn.  While Ashton did have her patients jump at .5mg Valium, they also had been at that leverl 10-14 days or more beforehand.  You are almost there and soon will be free.  :thumbsup:

ok Im almost there.... Its frustrating . I feel like its just within my reach. I know its my decision. I didnt take anything today again. Maybe  I should.

I just read the Ashton Manual again. She advises to stay at a certain point in your tapering if there is a family crisis. There is here . We have a family member that just got a heart transplant. There are so many things going on in my mind and other things too much to discuss here. So I am going to stay on the .5 Valium for another week.  :'(

Well today was much better than yesterday. I cannot eat anything that has too much oil or meat on it . I was eating really well before, actually I lost my appetite on Klonopin and now I am hungry for anything.

I gained back the weight I lost . Oh well better that than drugged up. Its only 8 lbs but on me it feels like a lot more.

getting over this has been hard but not as hard as I thought it would be.

I am almost finished. Im doing .5 Valium in water, drinking 1/2 every day.

I know Ashton says to jump at .5 but I am very sensitive to meds and I feel better doing it slowly.
