When I read some of the stories on here I realise how much vitamins must be helping me. I came of Diazepam & Mirtazipine relatively easy in comparison to stories I've read. I just wondered if anyone else has taken Vitamins, or taking them?

      Hi Carol, I take

      Vitamin B Complex

      Multivitamin & Minerals

      PPMP ( potassium & magnesium)

      I normally take 2 ppmp a day, but when I was going through withdrawals I took 4-6 no more than 6 is advised. The tablets must be from a health food store though. Xx

    How fast did you manage to come off each and from what dose ?

    I am terrified of the withdrawals.

      I was on Diazepam 5mgs, 3 times a day for 3 months. Took a month to come off. Mirtazipine 15mgs for nearly 3 months, took 2-3 weeks. I felt I could have came of quicker, but was under Dr, so just went along with him.

      I was terrified to come of diazepam, but once I came of them successfully, I felt I could manage Mirtazipine withdrawals as they are not as bad as diazepam.

      Well done. I think the 3 month useage duration will have helped you.

      I have been on both for a very long time. 10 years in different doses of diazepam....stabke at 10mg daily now and 35mg of mirt....am tapering from 45mg....been on for 2 years.

      Am going to do mirt first then the diazepam. As the mirt is causing me negative side effects.

      Do you feel all better now ?

      When I dropped from 15mgs to 7.5 by halving the tablet, I had 2 nights, feeling edgy, sore stomach & didn't sleep good. Fine now 👍
