I know its not recommended but any one with experience? I'm really hoping i stopped just in time! Thanks!

Please be very careful if you go 'cold turkey '...Its Not something to take lightly with ANY benzo unless you have experience of doing so before!


RE: Benzo cold turky - folken - 01-25-2019

Depends on the dosage you are using currently....IMO

Anything greater than 5mg per day- should be tapered to avoid side effects. 


Lot's of threads on how to do the tapering on the forum.

Good luck!...……………...Folken

honstym, how are you doing physically and emotionally? I just always worry about seizures when I hear about people going cold turkey off of Benzos. Hope all is going great and I hope you are feeling happy and healthy!

To be honest i dont feel 2 bad. I've been using a bit of gabapentin plus another anti seizure drug. Guys.. thanks so much for giving a shit. I'm hoping im near the end of this. I'll keep you all updated. Thanks for your advice. Peace to all.

I did it once, and even with a taper, it really took a toll on me.

Thanks honstym for sharing and you seem to heading in the right direction. Your Gabapentin tip is useful as well as other suggestions of diet, exercise especially in nature, water and I will include Inderal when I take the leap. I've drastically reduced my b consumption over the last year, so I feel I'm getting close to going cold turkey. Good luck and keep us posted. Stay safe!
