    Hi Shell, if taken slowly you shouldn't experience withdrawal symptoms, you mighty want to discuss it with your GP and agree a tapering down as depends on your current dose and how long you've been taking it.N

      Hi ten years i have been taking diazepams. And believe me I always get withdrawal symptoms. It's a nightmare it's took me 2 years to get on this mg it was 46 56mg a day I was taking this drug.

     I am on diazepam withdrawal programme if I had known the effects of this drug I would never have taken it our bodies will only naturally accept 30 mg anymore this is poison which led to me being hospitalised  I drop twomg every two weeks and it usually takes me about 5 days  to notice the drop because it is still in our system for all off that time the advice given to me by a drugs expert was to keep drinking plent of water to flush it out quicker... Withdrawal symptoms are often unbearable and needs to be reduced with medical advice it also magnifies the reasons why you start to take it.., it's not easy but it's a must doctors should only prescribe this for a very short period of time my doctor left me on this for three years the longer we are on this type of medication the more our bodies need it because it gives us a false calmness

    Hi shell when it was explained to me what the drug can do that was  my focus to come off  I have gone down from 30mg a day to 8 m a day it's not easy by any means even when they drop 1mg a feel it like I said earlier it takes about five days for me to notice the withdrawal symptoms but at least I know why I feel like this... Nobody should withdraw or come of any medication without medical advice I have weekly apps with a specialised drugs team

      Hi same for me I have weekly phone call from my doctor. What made you to decide to come off these drug's. I also have to take a 150mg sertreline in the morning and 40mg amitripytline at night to help me with withdrawal symptoms. Regards shell

    Hi shell I came off it because it made me worse because I had been on it for a long time my body wanted more and I couldn't get more this caused me more anxiety it stopped me functioning I was even getting dressed or showered I was completely broken I was underweight and very unhealthy my 

    liver failed as a result of this I appeared drunk to everyone and was living in constant fog even though I have never drunk alcohol a lot of these feelings returned  more so when I get a reduction but it is possible to come off 

    good luck

      Hi thank you for your posts. Reading this makes sense. This is what happened to me every thing you said was me. Now I have been tapering 2 years but I was taking 48mg for years. Never again, can't wait for my body to be daizepams free. Lol one more thing do your teeth hurt like mad.

      Thanks again for the replys

      regards shell

      Hi how long do your withdrawal symptoms last for. Mine can last for many days. You would think our bodies would let's us off the withdrawal symptoms but that's wishful thinking lol. Well its day 3 since i drop to 21and half mgs so I am very sure that them nasty surprises off withdrawal symptoms kick in. Omg i hate this feeling knowing what coming.

      Mental drug it is a nasty diazepams.

      Regards shell

    Hi shell it usually takes me about 4 days to readjust one the withdrawal symptoms have kicked in I know the feelings are horrendous but you can get through them because you know it's diazepam withdrawal  keep drinking plenty of water and limit your caffeine intake try and carry on doing what you need to do keep bust believe me it's extremely hard but it's possible

    stay strong
