Haven't had that problem myself, except (as Lamdage mentions) tolerance/withdrawal anxiety. Some benzos are more stimulating than others (yes, stimulating! or at any rate activating and euphoric) Ativan can make me hypomanic, while good ol' Valium is completely sedating.

I find kava-kava is a safe alternative to the benzos, some activation (a mild MAOI antidepressant) but with its strong tranquilizing effect it works well for me. Non-addictive, no tolerance build-up! Check out the Alternative board, I believe I posted a while back on kava, would be happy to share more.

Depression is an altered state of consciousness - SLS
Bupropion XR
Diazepam 5 mg tid - weaning
Robaxin - non-prescribed
Kava - non-Rx, prn
