Thanks Brian....new poster here. I will follow the doctor.
If you don't feel comfortable on your reduction by the end of two weeks call your doctor's office and be sure to tell him/her. On my taper I really felt crappy the 1st week or so on a new dose, and then gradually became comfortable again. Then, time for the next cut per medical directions. NEVER 2nd guess the taper plan. When in doubt,simply follow directions. Can't go wrong that way. let go and trust.
Hi, Yes, your doctors orders override everything else. A resource I think is well worth reading is the Ashton Manual (specifically designed by and addiction doctor for benzo withdrawals). You can find a copy here: http://www.benzodocs.com/. It calls out things to watch for etc.
