Hi, sorry for my English:
When I was 16 I was into a depression and I was treated years with 0,5 of Tranquimazin a day (Alprazolam) it helped with the depressive mood it did nothing with the sleep problems. A year ago or so (I'm now 22) I had muscular problems and was given 2,5 of Diazepam (Valium) two times a day. When I ended the one week treatment I (foolish of me) requested my Doctor to change my usual Alprazolam to Diazepam, because it helped me a lot with sleep. Nowadays I only take 2,5 at night, and if I'm in bad times, another pill in the morning. The thing is, I have developed tolerance and I have anxiety anyways. To make it worse, the diazepam has ruined sleep and I always wake up tired. I've tried to quit like 3 or 4 times in the past, cold turkey, decreasing dosage, doing altern days, all the thing. When the drug leaves my body I feel amazing, with the energy a 20 year old like me should feel. But for other unrelated causes (digestive problems->anxiety) I always ended taking the drugs again. Now I'm in a good moment of my life and this is the only thing that exhausts me. Right now I've got anxiety, my heart rate is slow because of the pill, an that makes even more anxious, It's like I'm at 200% in my head and 50% in my body, I'm tired of this feeling. Should I try to quit it again? It's cold turkey safe? (I take 2,5-5 max. a day)
Thanks in advance!
