Well I'm finally off clonazepam, I took my last dose on Thursday before entering hospital. That night they told me I was getting 10mgs of valium and I would be on 25mgs of valium a day then weaning down. I went nuts telling them by the Ashton method I should be on 70mgs of valium and swapped across slowly so I wouldn't fit. Anyway it got sorted out after they rang my pdoc and then explained to me what they were doing.
I'm now down to 18mgs a day and will wean off that 1mg a day. I was doing really well till after I went shopping yesterday and got in the bus to go back to hospital when I had my worse ever panic attack. Everything started swirling around me, I felt like where am I and who are these people, things just started closing in and of course I felt like I was either dieing or going insane. I must have started breathing as I taped the nurse and panted out that I was having a massive attack. I just kept breathing but it left me shaking till 3 hours later.
I saw my pdoc last night and he said the staff were happy with how I handled it (I was just petrified and he explained the re-bound anxiety I'll get from the benzo withdrawals will be worse then normal anxiety and it could last for months after I stop the valium.
Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well, I'm home for today but have to go back to hospital for at least another week.
