Hi everyone, I've quit diazepam about a month ago. My doc prescribed it to help me cope with a zopiclone withdrawal (stopped cold turkey after 3 months of use). I started with a small dose (2mg of diazepam before bedtime) and started to taper after my first week on it. So, I took 1 week of 2mg, then 1 week of 1.5mg, 1 of 1mg, then 2 weeks of 0.5mg, 2 weeks of 0,25. I got stable on 0,25 and I progressivly stopped which means I took 0.25 mg 4 times a week, 3 times the next week, 2 times the week after and then 0. I feel good overall but I can't drink coffee nor alcohol yet, not even a few sips. When I do, it's like most of my withdrawal symptoms come back. I get internal vibrations (this is the most persistant one), blurry vision, dizziness, I feel like I'm on a boat when I'm laying down flat on my back, random adrenaline rushes, tension, feeling depress, etc. It seems to come and go and it does'nt last for more than half a day. It's worst in the morning when I wake up.
I know it's probably very common and I should'nt worry about it, but I'd like to know if someone had or is having a similiar issue with caffein and alcohol (after quiting diazepam)
SO, I'm just wondering how much longer will I have to wait. Is there any hope I can be able to quietly enjoy a beer under the sun without having these "tensions" inside me, I mean in a relativly close future?
