You need to see a doctor very soon. Benzo withdrawal can be very dangerous, it’s a serious drug that you should not mess around with. If you have the money go into the emergency room, some cities have rehab clinics that will treat you until you get the drugs out of your system for free. Call your local county or city hospital. Good luck.

Benzo withdrawals can be severe. Because of that, you want to taper your dosage very very slowly. A good multi-vitamin is good, and B and D and C supplements are also good. Exercise is good but don’t do it later in the day and don’t over do it or you will have trouble sleeping.

After five years on benzos, you might have a bit of a rough road ahead of you. Taper very very slowly and you will avoid most of the withdrawals. Very very slowly means you might want to take six months to slowly taper off, and even that might be too fast.

As you reduce your dosage you will experience withdrawals – insomnia, anxiety, etc. Balance how well you can tolerate the withdrawals with how fast you taper. Too fast and the withdrawals get pretty bad.
