I have just done 2 weeks from my last 2mg dose of valium.
I have been tapering on and off for ages.
Pleased to be off it, but still finding it hard to sleep and I am feeling agitated and nervous. Hopefully, this will pass.
On the upside, its been better than some of the tapers to date. I took 10 days off work, which I think I should have done ages ago,
Anyway, what I don't understand is this: I felt fine for nearly a week. No reaction. Then it started, the usual no sleep feeling on edge headache etc. THis happened before. I usually reckon a taper affects me for about 2 weeks then gets better. However psychiatrist and psychologist both say that I was on a low dose and since it has a half-life of about 6 hours they cant see how it can possibly really be affecting me. I kind of understand this, but why then would it take a week before feeling withdrawal (if it was all in my head I mean?).
Does anyone else find tapers the same as I do?
