Blueskies,

Benzo's are a witch! And docs love to hand them out like candy on halloween....

Klonopin and valium aren't so bad, they're the babies of the bunch....most people can take them for years with not too many problems and actually use these to detox off the big bad Xanax.....Xanax should never have been marketed...it's worse than coke, meth, or extasy.....you get hooked and good luck trying to get unhooked. As reachout said all you can do is taper a very slow and controlled taper and when you get to a certain point you just stop and deal with the withdrawals....you don't use another pill to ease you out of it because then you just have to detox off that pill....it's a big mistake that people make all the time...your just trading one fix for another, why?

I've been on Benzo's for ahhh let's see....15 years...lol..and will be for life...with BiPolar they're just part of the package.....I don't rotate them, that just gets you hooked on more....I take a week off every 5 weeks to give myself a break, and that works for me....I get less sleep that week, but hey, sleep is not my thing anyways....

The thing with Benzo's is once you detox off them, you don't go back, because it just gets harder and harder each time....
