Tips

CAUTION: The information contained in this document comes from the personal experience of laypeople and is not intended to constitute medical advice. Do not attempt to stop or taper benzodiazepines without first consulting a doctor.

Some Tips 

§         You must be stable on your dose before starting your taper and hold when necessary to remain stable.

§         Be sure to have a continuing supply of the benzo you are taking.

§         Eat something (a few tablespoons of yogurt, some crackers, etc) before taking any medications.

§         Try to keep a journal next to your bed. Record anything unusual during the day – stress, etc.

§         Be sure to pace your taper to be under 1%, at least in the first few weeks to judge how fast or slow your body will tolerate the titration. Slow and easy = SUCCESS!! This is not a race!!

§         Please refer to the Water Titration Taper Schedule Manual for tips if you take multiple daily doses

 

bullet To use liquid Valium, you can prepare your dose simply by mixing the liquid Valium directly with the amount of water required (from Step 1 above) in the blender and spinning for 20 to 30 seconds. Omit Steps 3 through 7 and proceed to Step 8. Please note that with liquid Valium there is no dry dose. Your daily dose is strictly the “Dissolve Dose.”
