Hi BG

Just curious.  How are you making out with the Seroquel?  I was put on it in 2009 when I tried to detox from Xanax.  It was an outpt detox, though, and they took me off in four days.  Needless to say, that didn't go well.  But I was wondering if the Seroquel helped with sleep.  I remember it put me in a coma.  I was on 200 mg., plus Cymbalta plus lemictal.  I just don't remember much that happened then.

Hi:
I know about you because you responded to my introduction.
Thank you so much for responding.
I don't really understand how to use the posting system in order to get some conversation going.
Your physical symptoms during withdrawal sound like mine so reading them calms me a bit.
I'm feeling very fearful about my nerve pain, generalized burning, patches of burning (feet, hands arms, lips, tongue) sudden singular nerve sensations, muscle spasms and some deep sudden bone pain anywhere and everywhere all of which causes a vicious cycle of pain and fear followed by more pain due to the nerve stimulation by the fear.
I just want to be my slightly anxious but [...] self again.
The severe psychological symptoms from my original Klonopin withdrawal have mostly abated.
I'm now tapering off of Valium after starting it, when 6 months off of the Klonopin, because of the terrible fear due to the extreme uptick of physical symptoms of withdrawal after a flu.

I was experiencing my morning yucky ness and went to your post. It thrilled me that I could hear from another artist. I [...] at 5 mgs Valium from a taper beginning with 3 mgs xanex. I painted when I was on xanex and have been blocked for the time I [...] concentrating on recovery.
I blame my intuition and my feelings for getting me in this mess .
But I know that that thinking is wrong. I [...] learning to handle fear and anxiety in other ways and.take heart in your saying the anxiety is now less than before.
I pray to once again accept and love my artist self. Thank you for your story!

Can you tell me the pros and cons of transitioning to Valium?  I guess I [...] a baby, but when I go off I feel so awful I go back to a small dosage.  Why go to Valium.  Won't that then become another withdrawal to suffer through?
