[...], how is your Valium crossover going?

Hi [...]!

So far, so good. I'm currently at:

1 mg Xanax (Alprazolam generic) in the early morning.
-and-
.5 mg Xanax (Alprazolam generic) + 5 mg Valium (Diazepam generic) late morning.

Tomorrow (Tuesday 3/14) I will cut another .25 mgs off the Xanax, and my dose will look like this:
.25 mg Xanax (Alprazolam generic) + 10 mg Valium (Diazepam generic) late morning.
I will hold here for a few days and exchange the last .25 mg of this Xanax dose for a total of 20 mgs of Diazepam. Then I will start tapering the Diazepam. I bit unorthodox, but my doc won't prescribe more than 20 mgs of Diazepam per day (though they had no problem giving me 2 mgs of Xanax a day for as long as I live...).

I have windows where I can function, but still feel withdrawal symptoms off and on. I'm wondering if I shouldn't get rid of the Buspirone first, but don't want to complicate things.

Thanks for checking in. I hope you are doing well!
