What works for one may not work for another. You have decided to do total withdrawel and maybe that has worked for you. Also the older you get the situation changes. Being on klonopin for years I atttempted withdrawel. BP went up and I found there were times I needed a dose. What you have to remember anxiety has very bad physical effects on the body and much worse when one is in their 60's. So i have compromised I adjust my dose as needed. Some days I only take one 1 mg pills most days 1.5 milligrams and on bad days 2 milligrams. yes i exercise and eat well to reduce anxiety. Sometimes we have to compromise. I'd rather see phillipe adjust her dosages and do with as little as possible to get buy rather than suffer needlessly for the sake of withdrawel. At my age I don't have a year to suffer for the sake of saying I'm drug free and Phillipe is around my age. As I said earlier I think a good first step is seeing if one can lower their dose to a level they're comfortable with. Sometimes there seems to be a philosophy of meds or no meds. Phillipe is actually doing better right now and is more fuctional as I communicate with her. So why put excessive stress with her as either take valium or no valium. I think reduction or taking doses as needed is a valid game plan.
