I am trying to taper off of benzos. Benzos are great if you can take them sparingly and they do work.
For some of us though, the side effects and ever increasing dosages of long term use become a problem. I had a blood test tonight that revealed elevated liver enzymes.
I was taking 2 mg per day -- 3 mg on bad days--skipping 1 to 2 days a week to have drinks. I have slashed that to 1 mg a day and am going to abstain from alcohol for a bit. As well as see my PCP on the 13th.
It IS VERY HARD TO STOP TAKING THESE PILLS. The Withdrawl hasn't been horrible but noticeable and I am at a loss on how to cut down more and when to do it. Or how much. Any input would be welcome. I also posted on a benzo forum seeking advice.
