Milk titration
« on: January 27, 2022, 05:40:47 pm »
Can you please help me with titration with milk?  Iím on 9 mg and the last dry cut I made was 1 mg from 10 and Iíve been suffering anxiety for 3 weeks. I really need a schedule for milk titration going much slower.   I saw that you will make out a schedule?  Iíve done milk titration before, but it was a long time ago and I started at much less valium. I am now on valium.  Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you

Hi [...],

We don't make schedules for our members but we'll work with you to figure out what your best path forward is.  It's good to know you have experience with titration, this link is to help you freshen your memory of what to expect.  https://youtu.be/L1DgY33JKpE

What size are your pills, have you considered getting the 2 mg so you can cut your pills into much smaller pieces?  Would you be comfortable continuing to dry cut if you could get them?  I just hate to see you get tied down with titrating when there are still options for dry cutting.  Also, did you know Diazepam comes in a liquid form from the manufacturer, this would save you from having to do the mixing yourself.

I'm not trying to talk you out of this, just going over your options.  :)

Thank you for your reply. Basically some unscrupulous rehab put me in klonopin equal to 30 mg Valium. Iíve pill tapered Valium down to 10. I went down to 9.0 had horrible anxiety. Decided to go to milk titration. Iím now at 8.5 and still having horrible anxiety, even after 2 weeks. I really need help. I donít unite understand how some people make tiny cuts every day. With what kind of syringe?  The smallest I have is under 1.0   Thank you   I  bc really need your help

Ziggy, I used this water taper method for my clonazepam taper but you could use milk instead of water.  It is super easy to use and you can adjust the amount of days it takes to taper by adjusting the amount of liquid you usel  And of course, you can hold at the dose you are on at any point:

Can I ask why you want to switch to micro tapering and which method are you currently using?

YeS PLEASE can you help me milk micro titrate?  . Iíve been milk titrating but Iím getting confused about ml And mg.  Is 1 ml the same as 1 ml?  So I started milk titrating at 9.0 and cut it to 8.5. Iím holding now bc Iím getting so many w/d symptoms. So I thought .5 ml is the same as 1/2 mg of valium   Iím so confused. I have the very smallest Syringe I could buy. It goes from 1.0 ml and down.   Should I try just use that syringe and try a lower dose but every day?  I really need help!  Thank you
