> Again, if you were to make decisions based solely on your observations, you would probably opt to discontinue the Tegretol, but stay at a dosage of 200mg for a few days to see whether you can recapture the improvement you experienced on the way up. If, on the other hand, you feel better tomorrow, you can then remain there for another 5 days to see how you do before going up to 800mg. If 800mg produces a stable reduction in symptomatology, then you can proceed to taper the diazepam.
> Phenobarbital acts at several different sites that serve to increase GABA receptor activity and decrease glutamate activity. However, it works quite differently from Tegretol or Depakote. Since I don't know anything about its use in BZD withdrawal, you will need to be sure that it has some history of success.

You mean try the 600mgs today and see how i feel tomorrow? Or did you think to lower the dose back down to 200-300?

Yeah, the phenobarbitol is pretty iffy. I think that the Uk is much more benzo savy than the US, and even they banned using it in hospitals, deeming it "barbaric". But it is still commonly used in the US.

But it sounds much more fun to feel drunk and out of it while you go through this.
