My sincere sympathy to you regarding your miscarriage.
Here is my understanding of cold turkey withdrawal from Benzos
Cold turkey refers to the abrupt discontinuation of an addictive drug. - This is an extremely dangerous move! I am shocked that the physician would do this.
If you have been taking a benzodiazepine at a high dose or for an extended period of time, you could be at risk for withdrawal seizures.
The severity of symptoms produced by a ‘cold turkey’ withdrawal off benzodiazepines often leads to resumption of the benzo and the fear of what a withdrawal taper will really be like. Anecdotal evidence suggests that a ‘cold turkey withdrawal’ can increase the length of the time one might suffer from withdrawal symptoms.
I would advice you to go to a walk in clinic or ER if you start having symptoms and become concerned. Remember patient's have rights and cold turkey withdrawal is unheard of where I live unless hospitalized.
Take care of you. (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))
