I was put on mine after major surgery by my gyno. He had no business prescribing it but I took it. 6 months after I finally healed from the surgery he just said okay you donít need meds anymore. I said okay and left. My withdrawal didnít kick in for weeks bc it was Valium. Or at least noticeable symptoms. Had no idea what was going on when it hit me and by the time my PCP and I could figure out what was happening it was too late to reinstate. I tried and I was worse. Wish I had never taken them to begin with. Iím at year 3 with protracted symptoms.
