> Well, I'm revisiting the place I didn't want to go. It seems the nausea, hysteria, and psyhotic thinking take a few days to surface after I adjust dosages. This isn't going very well. Is it possible that reducing benzos in someone as sensitive to meds as myself could trigger serious depression/cycling? I'll ask my doc and check back with you. Thanks, S

I wish I had something full of insight to say.
Mainly, I write to lwt you know that I am thinking about you. One thing I might suggest, is that if things are going so very badly, go back up in your dosage of an appropriate benzo until you are comfortable--well, as comfortable as before attempting withdrawal--and make sureish that present problems are indeed due to the withdrawal.
(The determination of causal factors is often very difficult even when we they seem quite certain.) If it becomes evident that withdrawal is the problem, stay at the dosage necessary to maintain reasonable comfort for awhile. When ready, you can try to withdraw again at a snail's pace, or slower. IF you need a benzo for some time, then so be it. Of course, stay in close touch with a good doc. Don't create an unecessary crisis. If indeed your primary problem is extreme sensitivity to withdrawal from a reasonable use of benzos, don't sweat it, take the benzos. Put off any withdrawal which actually may never be necessary. Best wishes.
