Help with Lorazepam to Valium crossover
« on: February 24, 2022, 06:17:04 pm »
Hello

I was given Lorazepam 1mg daily for 4 consecutive weeks in hospital, sometimes twice per day.

When it was acknowledged that I was withdrawing after leaving hospital (unbearable symptoms 3 days after leaving hospital) I was given Diazepam, but told that 1mg is the equivalent of 5mg Diazepam 😑

I took 4mg for a few days then onto 2mg with flu like symptoms.

I tried to come off 2mg cold turkey and it did not go well. I am only beginning to re stabilise on 2mg now, and Iím so glad Iíve found this group to help me plan and taper off completely.

I wish you all the best, you WILL do this.

Hello [...],

I moved your post from another members thread so you could have one of your own to discuss your taper, do you still need our help?

[...],

In order to better help you, it would be helpful if you would add your history/signature.  Please add it for Zolpidem and any other psych drugs you are on that may affect your taper.  Here is the link:

Hi Hoeful247, I'm glad you're back, we can help you but as [...] said it will help us help you if we can see all of your information at a glance instead of looking back through your posts.  If you have trouble doing this, just put your information here and a team member can do it for you.

Are your pills the 2 mg and how long have you been on the Zolpidem?
