Need a Valium taper plan?

Need a Valium taper plan?

The slower the bette: When it comes to tapering someone off valium, i take it very slowly. I do not want to see one of my patients lulled into the false security that they can quickly taper off valium only to have them have a seizure 2 to 4 weeks later. Valium is a very long acting drug. Without knowing what type of anxiety you're being treated for, it is difficult for me to state that you should take an antidepressant . There have been some reports of using tegretol, an anticonvulsant in the long-term use of valium withdrawal to improve patient compliance and comfort during the long withdrawal process. Please lower valium under the direction of your psychiatrist. Take it slowly especially as you get down to lower amounts or withdrawal typically becomes more difficult. I wish you the best in this process and know that you can come off of the medication given proper emotional and if necessary medicinal support. ...Read more

Can people be allergic to valium?

Not common: I would wonder if the allergy is to the inactive ingredient in the tablet of diazepam as opposed to an allergy to diazepam itself because it is an uncommon allergy although i suppose it is possible. A more common consideration would be an adverse behavioral change related to the administration of diazepam including severe disinhibition or aggression. Stay safe! ...Read more
