2 days ago · Any positive stories about Benzo tapering? in Addiction & Recovery

They may not have known many many years ago. True. But they have known for a very long time. The problem is that most don’t want to get involved in the tapering process. It can be very hard for some people and require a lot of their time getting patients through the process if done correctly. So they just leave you on. It was my idea to taper, which was when I was basically abandoned by my doctor.

Do NOT try to do this in 3 weeks. Can you find another doctor? My doctor will be using the Ashton Method of tapering. Please google this and show it to your doctor. It can take months or years to safely taper a benzo. I’m still very nervous and anxious about tapering even though my new doctor says he’ll work with me as long as it takes.

I know what you mean Helen! I have suffered from severe anxiety and panic for 30 years. My physchiatrist and GP never warned me about the danger of these drugs. Never! I should have researched myself but did well for 30 years. The Xanax completely turned on me and the Paxil quit working. I wound up in the hospital for 3 days. Couldn’t eat or sleep. Just cry. Now I’m in a mess . My physchiatrist of 25 plus years totally abandoned me and I had to find a new doctor to help me out of this nightmare. I’m trying to figure out what to do about my physchiatrist, just don’t have the energy to deal with it yet.

So happy to hear this! I’m 67 and a nervous wreck. How did you do it? I’ll be starting a taper from Xanax. My doctor now has me on Valium as it’s easier to taper from. Are you taking any meds now? Did you take anything during your taper? I know I have a lot of questions if you don’t mind!

Thank you. I know everyone is different but the horror stories are getting to me. I will continue with an anti depressant also. Anymore success stories out there? I need positivity!

Does anyone have success stories about tapering off benzos? All I hear are horror stories. Even one success story would be helpful! Thank you in advance.
