Updating to note that I've dropped to 15 mg valium per day since I was not having symptoms (finally, blissfully, no idea why) after the last drop and started that dose on Thurs Sept 25:
5/5/5 or sometimes 5/10 -- I'm finding that the 10 mg. will get me through the day if I take it at noon.
At work, twice per week, I'm still having to increase it usually to around 25 mg.
So progress! I am continuing to taper.
And if it weren't for my journal, I would lose track completely... I found my account had some problems, unsure why, but I'm glad I could fix them! This forum continues to be a lifeline for me.
Blessedly and unusually unsymptomatic for the moment. I like this "taper five days" and "taper some, but not too much" for two days. I plan to keep taking medication when finally not addicted, but something short-acting to avoid becoming addicted since I only need for situational anxiety, I think.
I've been mainly just on valium for a week after twenty years of xanax - Part 37
