    Hi robert

    sorry, do you want advice on coming of the meth or the diazepam. If you are using the diazepam to taper off the meth how is that going. 40mg is a lot of diazepam. You could drop down from 40mg diazepam to 20mg without much problem (large cuts are easier when you are taking such high quantities then taper slowly from there, look up the Ashton manual. It depends what you want to tackle first the meth or the diazepam .

    Hi Robert,

    drop down to 30mg diaz for 1 week , then to 20 mg for 2 weeks and then reduce by 2 mg every 2 weeks , keep in touch with your Doc, re methodone .

    10mg drop would do nothing to me...we are all different so try how you go, Alans advice sounds best.
