Want to be off this

Posted , 3 users are following.

have been on valium  for three years at 5mg night and 2mg day. Obviously body now in tolerance and i would like to taper.

had different anti deps during this time, none have been tolerated except mirtazapine but never over 7.5,dr now getting me off them, down to 3.75.

got Ashton Manual but finding it hard to cut down to 1mg in day as a start.   Should i try to cut down 5mg slowly at night first, or has anyone any ideas.

i am anxious and agitated about everything and now suffering from post gallbladder syndrome where tests are not pleasant and im scared stiff but feel fatigued and unwell physically with all the nausea, runs and post gb pain.

    Hi Ann we have talked before l think you firstly need to get off the mirt which you seem to be lingering on.After that l would reduce the 5 mg dose by 0.5mgs and sit on that dose for a while and see how it goes.There is no right or wrong way however do not you your dose and keep moving forward.
