Cooper, I wanted to ask how the crossover to Valium went for you?  Did it create anxiety or depression?  Are you sleeping and did it help?  I am currently tapering Xanax and am at 1.95 mg per day.  I dose 4 times a day and need to work on the timing.. I take the largest dose at bedtime to help with sleep and take Trazodone.  Sleep is not great.  As I have gotten lower Iím noticing racing heartbeat and headache before my scheduled dose time which I guess are I/D withdrawals.  Any advice appreciated.  Not a lot of People tapering Xanax that I can find. Iím functioning and desperately want to stay that wayÖ Thanks!

The crossover went extremely smoothly, actually much better than being on just Xanax for me. I was taking Xanax XR.  I did have some depression in the beginning, but it lifted quickly.  I am sleeping and yes I sleep much better on Valium then I ever did on Xanax.  That's just me though, I am always tired!  LOL 
Advise, just keep on keeping on!

You are most welcome to a pat  on the back!

My seas are choppy and hard to navigate. As if I been snoozing in my cabin and woke to a boat in rough seas where the crew has done abandoned the boat.
Glad to hear about your crossover to  the V working better for you. Sleeping better sounds wonderful
