      I have been taking 2mg diazepam twice aday so 4mg and doc wants me to cut down to one aday so cut down to one and half and I feel like I'm not ready to cut down. I have been on them for 2months would you say I will get withdrawals? 

      Do u mind me asking what mg you take?

    Hi Cloe, you are on a very low dose and 2 months isn't too long. Your GP is probably worried about addiction so best to discuss with him/her, the compromise could be you cut down to 1 a day but with the option to take another as and when needed, it will give you peace of mind, but do tell your GP you don't feel ready to cut down or explore alternatives such as Buspirone.

    I can take up to 5mg per day when needed, but I usually just split and take half and if needed I'll take the other half.

    5mg is a medium dose, 10mg would send me to sleep.

      Buspirone (trade name Buspar) is an anti anxiolitic but is not habit forming, you have to take it for about 2-4 weeks to feel any benefit but can take a benzodiazepine like Diazepam until they take effect.

      If you can be okay until Monday then great, alternatively you could ask for a call from GP to say your struggling a bit and can you go back to taking 2 a day until your appointment on Monday when you can discuss it further, or send an email saying same. N
