But what if your tolerance keeps growing and growing? Valium and ativan feel like sugar pills to me now. Klono and xanax are the only ones that do anything for me. Although klono works, it kinda makes me depressed and irritable and this nasty wet blanket feeling on my head.

When I was in the middle east last summer, where you can't get benzos or sleeping pills from GPs, only PDOCs. You can't even get stimulants from PDOCS, have to go through the government. They are afraid of the whole country getting hooked, and looking at our country, it seems almost justified.

My PDOC, in a hospital setting, cold turkeyed me off of a high dose of stimulants, i was at a high dose of ativan, and he dramatically lowered it to 30mgs valium, cold turkeyed sleeping meds, added an ad, some zyprexa, a small dose of an anticonvulsant. Barbaric? Yeah, but not as bad as a 1 year taper would be IMO.

Yes, worst week of my life.

But came back to states, and didn't feel the need for benzos, but racing thoughts grew out of control from the rapid detox, that i thought it was bipolarity, but it wasn't.

My tolerance for these drugs and alcohol (which i don't touch anymore), is extremely high, and i'd have to keep on chasing the dose.

What is your opinion on swapping them out for phenobarbital? I see it has worked for many, some ashton followers call it barbaric. But a slow wean, as recommened by her felt more barbaric.

regards,

Brian
