> hi on the one hand, you were on a relatively low dose. that's good in terms of avoiding a miserable taper. also, I'm glad you were prescribed Valium. here, it's usually one of the 3 : xanax, ativan, klonopin. and the tapers are miserable, and the doctors are slack. -fun-

A more immediate effect is GABA activation, so its sort of like taking a sedative that is also a vitamin and antioxidant, etc. Some experts in the "alternative" field report that long term benzodiazepine-treated people are able to taper more quickly, with fewer adverse effects, by going for a Hoffer-style protocol.

Thank you for the information about supplementation, very handy!
