Hi, a little advice needed if possible. At the beginning of sept last year I was prescribed 2 weeks worth of diazepam 2mg I didn't take it every day 3x a day as I only wanted to use as needed. My anxiety was really bad. Anyway...those 40 tablets lasted me just over 6 weeks. Then, I didn't take any at all for 2 weeks. After this 2 weeks I was put on 10mg of citalopram and given another 21 diazepam 2mg tablets (on the 29th Nov) to help with side effects. It's now 28th of January and I still have 1 left. So in 8 weeks Iv not even had a weeks worth. Would it be possible to have severe withdrawal from this amount Iv taken over a period of 5 months? Or even any withdrawal at all? Some days I'd take one then not have another for 5 days then take 1 and maybe another 2 days later. This week Iv had 3 as my anxiety has been horrendous. My anxiety is pretty bad and I wake up feeling awful every morning, I feel like I'm shaking on the inside like there's a current running through my body, I get twitches all over my body now like someone's doing morse code! I dry heave at times, cry A LOT! Nervous tummy, tense. I don't know if this is my anxiety or if I'm having withdrawal from diazepam. Iv had some good days where Iv felt better but then I can dip again severely. I also take propranalol which has just been increased yesterday to 20mg 3x a day and im on 20mg of citalopram. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
