I have very recently found out i have a problem with Diazepam .
I dont drink or smoke or take any other drugs or medication and iam quite fit and healthly , at the gym approx 3 time per week and eat very very healthly . But i do severe from the most severe insomnia.
8 days ago after attempting to stop taking diazepam abrubtly through health reason i ended up in A and E in a very bad state, immediately after assessment i was put back on 30mg - although i really wanted none , but did what i was advised . within an hour from release from hospital i was at my GP,s whom devised a tapering plan to come off them completely. ie 28mg for 7 days then 26mg 7 days etc , my query is can this not be done safely slightly quicker ( i am hating this ) day one i had 26mg instead of 28mg , day two 25mg , and day three 24mg .. so far and i am feeling no adverse effects, so to sum up my plan is to try to reduce 1mg per day for the first week instead of 2mg per week , i have read all there various reduction tables most are similar but a few same do say on larger doses this reduction maybe okay .
Does anyone have experience in this method, please advise ?
