I'm currently experiencing what I presume to be benzodiazapine withdrawal syndrom. I tapered my Ativan dose down from 2mg a day to zero in less than three weeks without Valium substitution. I suspect that this may have been too abrupt a withdrawal. My doctor seemed to have little experience with benzo reduction schedlues so I didn't get much useful information from him. It's six days since my last 0.25mg and I'm feeling very wierd; listless, shakey, anxious and very dizzy (the truly horrific symptoms had passed by day 4). Could anyone out there whose gone through benzo withdrawal please reply and let me know what symptoms you went through and, if you can remember, give me a time line of what symptoms or feelings appeared and at what point in the withdrawal process. Did your doctor presecribe beta-blockers or anti-depressants and how did these help or complicate your recovery?
Many thanks; any advice will be appreciated.
