    Can I ask why you where taking them in the first place?

    I'm sure you know this but if your buying them off the Internet they could be mixed with anything and that's not good as you dont know what your withdrawing from.

    Now you've came off meds twice before so you CAN do it again, set a day to start your taper and go very slow to avoid unnecessary withdrawals and make sure you take care of yourself while you do this, 

    Keep hydrated, try and eat little and often, hot baths, push yourself to go for walks this will help with sleeping, magnesium is good for muscle cramps I would definitely recommend it.

    I hope this helps, please keep in touch but also try and find someone close to you to confine in and help you through, were always here to help 😊
