    Just curious as to which medication you are addicted? I don't see any mention of that here. The reason I ask, is I noticed one persons comment below:

    [[tootsie58 carol20979 • about an hour ago

    Why are you taking traxene it is another benzo.

    I am lost for words why someone would add another benzo

    to the mix.]]

    If the addiction is to Xanax, it only has a half-life of about 1 hour. So, to answer "tootsies" question, the reason is likely the relatively long half-life of Tranxene, which is 40-50 hrs. This allows one to have those benzo receptors filled up for a longer time, and makes it much longer before WDs kick in. Also, another helpful factor when tring to mitigate the effets of WDs, is that it is usually much easier to titrate down longer half-life meds, while kicking addiction. Diazepam is useful for the same reason that Tranxene is, the half-life can be as high as 200 hours in some people.
