In brief: Detox

Please, listen to experience.
It is never wise to self medicate or to self detox from any addictive substance. You are not choosing the right or best medications. Seizing, blood pressure issues, and the nausea of withdrawal can be very difficult. Benzos are just as addicting and as dangerous as opiates for a brain with the disease of addiction.

In brief: See below

You need to make sure you do a withdrawal with the guidance of an addiction specialist.
Going cold turkey, even with some medications of your own, can be dangerous, to say nothing of uncomfortable. Benzodiazepines are sometimes used, but again should be done with a physician supervision.
