Ok, so i know all of ashtons's work, and all the benzo sites that advocating going extremely slow (and not adding any meds), which is all i can do on valium solo (dropping 1mg every 2 weeks), perhaps faster on depakote. I mean, i have the most severe and uncommon wd symptoms. It's total tolerance withdrawal, it's at a point to where I'm afraid to leave my friends new apartment in fear that i'll get lost, that's how confused my brain is.
When you are at this point in benzo tolerance and poop out, is there really a point in maintaining going slow? Or with your theory of kindling, and kind of how i'm feeling, is to jump on an anticonvulsant and getting it over with.
Of course this would not be advocated by any of the benzo forums and benzo experts, but it just kida feels like it's time to get it done and over with.
They call detoxes, especially using phenobarbitol ones "barbaric", but it feels more barbaric for me to carry out this for another year, not be able to get off the couch and leave the apartment.
I mean, if I did it in 1 week last summer, and felt 1000 times better than now, is it maybe time for a quicker process?
