Are these withdrawal symptoms caused by reinstatement?

Posted , 2 users are following.


I took 7.5mg for 7 weeks because of insomnia. Then I tapered off from 7.5 to 1.0 in 4 weeks and then stopped for 8 days. Unfortunately, I had to reinstate because insomnia came back.

Last week I reinstated at 0,90 (my last dose while tapering) but after 2 terrible nights and days I upped the dose to the original starting dose of 7.5, with the thought that, I can take my time again to taper but in a much slower pace. And I’m fine with that.

Maybe I should have taken a lower dose instead of the original starting dose, but it is what it is…

I have been sleeping well since 4 days so that’s great! but I often feel very sad during the day, for no apparent reason. I also cry a lot and feeling a bit dizzy.

Are these withdrawal symptoms caused by reinstatement? Or could this be my “original” depression?

Is this related to stabilization? Any tips or advice?
