advice on xanax taper switching to Valium

March 3 2013 at 5:44 AM
ryinca 

please help, I screwed up. was on xanax for over a year 1.5 to 2.0 a day, but when i tried to get off I went through a 3 month hell of constant spitting, acid reflex. SO Doctor switched me to 10 mg of valium to start my taper. 3 weeks later the acid reflex has improved but I have the worst stomach cramping and bloating. I did not read the table and 3 weeks ago I stopped taking xanax and just started on valium. Should I just not go back and stay on the valium even though the cramping is awful or should I start taking like .5 of xanax in the middle of the day and cut down? I only have like .5 of xanax and 10 left because I threw 80 bars away when I got the valium.

Help on Benzo Withdrawals

Hi

I think the first place you need to go is to read Professor Heather Ashton's detailed manual on HOW to get off this type of drug at http://www.benzo.org.uk/manual/bzcha02.htm

As for the side effects that you are experiencing, you can CHECK at  https://www.rxisk.org/Default.aspx and at the top of the page you'll see a search bar where you can type in the drugs  you are taking and see if it is listed.

You can also REPORT the effect you are having here:  https://www.rxisk.org/Explore-Side-Effects/About.aspx

I hope you can get off safely with as little harm as possible.
