Hi everyone, I ran out of valium last wednesday, it's now 6 days later. I was taking 10mg each night for sleep. I didn't realise there would be a terrible cold turkey. I had all kinds of symptoms.
Now I've done 6 days, does anyone know if I should continue cold turkey? I received new valium today, and to be honest I took a tiny nibble to see what they were like. And now I feel a bit panicky a few hours later.
I've read cold turkey for 10mg a day (I've been taking them for 5 years) can be dangerous, but I'm not sure since I've not taken any for 6 days if I can continue or should I taper with the new valium?
I had no idea withdrawal would be so bad, I wish I'd known.
Any experience of this being shared would be very appreciated.
(I don't know if having a tiny bit of valium today, which would be about 2mg, negates the cold turkey of the past 6 days)
