    Exclamation Rapid Valium Withdrawal 25mg

    Hi everyone.

    I recently did a dry run of Valium withdrawal. I went from 25mg to 0 for roughly 3 days before I got any real side effects.
    -after 3 days I realised my train of thought was clouding and due to the psychosis risk I zipcuffed myself.
    - I realised my mental state was going down hill a bit so I took 50mg and probably 30mg the next day and the next + a little alcohol (bad idea)
    - I had about 5% recollection of the next 4 days whilst my levels started going back to normal

    I have taken Valium on and off for about 8 years now on and off. Previously stopping from similar doses straight off has never really had any negative effects apart from the odd bit of agitation. I think I have probably been on it for too long and on too higher a dose which is why it's hitting me this time.

    The reason I'm hitting it hard is due to plans I've made for next year. I need Valium off my medical records in order for a clean bill of health in order to start a certain profession. I need to study and ideally I'd like my concentration back. Zip cuffs and psychosis I see as a necessary evil so I'm happy to do the full thing this time round after getting a taste from my first attempt.

    So I guess my questions are..

    -How does psychosis typically last for?
    -How long do I need to be 'out of the way' basically? (I have a good environment to do this in and it's a good time for me with no access to alcohol)
    - Is there risk of death (I don't think there is but it would be reassuring to know)

    Tapering the dosage is a possibility but I'm running low on time right now. Your advice or contribution would be much appreciated.
    Thank you

    *These drugs are prescribed

    Hi averagejoe10,

    Welcome to the forum! I am new here too! Others with experience will comment and jump on to help you and offer support. I just didn't want you to get discouraged and think nobody was responding. I do know that Valium withdrawal does have the risk of seizures and could potentially be very dangerous. Please be very careful and seek medical advice.
    I have to run for now, but will try to check back later. Hang in there, you have come to the right place for support.
    As I always say,
    Forward and Onward Troops!

    Hey Thanks very much for that (I'd been checking emails all day for a reply lol)

    I read up on the seizure thing so maybe zip cuffs aren't the best way of restraint. I seriously doubt my doctor would give me many hints as she knows I don't really do things by halves (she'd know what I was planning) and the fact she see's right through me every appointment.Probably why I choose to see her

    But thanks for the very friendly welcome, really happy I decided to register.
