A general discussion of all thing benzo related (Xanax, Ativan, Valium, etc.)

    Hi there, I have been forced to quit valium as my doctor will no longer prescribe me this medication. I was using handfuls at one time during my cocaine addiction.

    I am going to quit cold turkey and would just like to know what to expect? I am now 10 days clean off all other drugs including alcohol. I’m part of C/A and have had sobriety once…[Read more]

    • Do you have the option to taper? If you speak honestly to the doc that you need to quit. he is obligated to help as benzo withdrawal can be deadly. If not. expect rebound anxiety, flu symptoms, hot and cold flashes, the usual. The big one to look out for is seizures. You may find yourself disconnecting mentally in a way you can’t control. Find a…[Read more]

      • My thoughts exactly

      • My doctor has now come to her senses and prescribed me a weeks worth yesterday which I am greatful for.

        I was around 30 hours out before reviving this medication and started to feel extremely unwell and couldn’t function at work. I should now be on a tapering dose over 10 weeks coming down from 25mgs daily to a few mgs in the end before…[Read more]

    Hi, I’m new here. So I’m diagnosed with anxiety with panic attacks and I’ve been on a number of drugs for it including xanax but right now I’m using bromazepam. Since I’m from Serbia, there’s not a lot on internet about bromazepam in serbian and I don’t really know if it has a different name in english. So my question is does anyone have…[Read more]

    • Hi, Im from serbia also. I did some research and I think I read somewhere where bromazepam was one of the most poisonous benzo, so is xanax, but I don’t know about about bromazepam, there is not a ton of research behind it, I understand what you are saying. I say try diazepam where it takes longer to feel the effects and it is less addictive in my…[Read more]

    Hey, I used benzos heavy for just under a year in few week binges and then would stop for a few days. Never understood the consequences until I got sober and quit cold turkey (DO NOT QUIT COLD TURKEY). I drank on any benzo almost everytime i took them. I’d drink a handful of beers with some vodka and maybe a 2-7 2 mg bars which always led to me…[Read more]

  • Hello posted an update in the group Group logo of BenzodiazepineBenzodiazepine 5 months ago

    Me and my friend had plans to do Xanax,
    After the whole lil peep thing i was wary and pretty nervous. We have both done a few drugs but only enogh to count on one hand. Never benzos.
    This was a step up for us.
    After watching CG Kids video on Xanax and his videos in geneal it made me not want to do it i didnt.
    My friend however did
    We had a week…[Read more]

    The only thing I hate about benzos, is the black out rage, accusing others of stealing or even hiding things from others that you have no reason hiding things from or even yourself. Which brings me to my conclusion. Benzos are bad.

  • lilbenzo posted an update in the group Group logo of BenzodiazepineBenzodiazepine 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hello everyone. I have been off the benzos for 9 months and I still suffer from withdrawal. I’ve been prescribed it for more than 6 years, and abused it for 2 to 3 years. Any advice on dealing with the withdrawal when it gets really bad? My symptoms are craving for benzos, worsening of my depression and anxiety, heart pain and other things.

    • Whatever you do don’t use or let go of the hope things will get better, they will. For me I had to be out and occupied but it was difficult because I had no energy to do anything. Some days I’d just lay in bed and that’s ok. Regardless of what you do don’t be too hard on yourself it takes time to heal and you already got 9 months.

      • Thank you for the kind words, CG. I never lose hope things won’t get better, things are going much better with me for these past months, I moved out to a foreign country to live with my girlfriend and things have been amazing since then. I just still feel this pain and craving from times to times, especially this last week since I stopped taking…[Read more]

        • You might go over to the kava group & check out the fairly lengthy post I just made. Kava works wonders for me personally when I use it for withdrawals from weed & benzos. It also just works great for acute anxiety. It is available in health food stores & online.

          Good luck with your recovery, we’re here for ya.

          • Hello. Thank you. I’ve read about your post. I will look at it in details, if it is sold here and talk about it to my girlfriend. so far I’ve read there’s no addiction and tolerance which is good, but I also read it’s bad for your health.

    Hey I was just wondering if anyone from the UK is in this forum? I’d like to PM someone a question about a “problem”.

  • Ancient Soul posted an update in the group Group logo of BenzodiazepineBenzodiazepine 7 months, 4 weeks ago

    I was wondering if anybody has much experience with the benzo analogues? I’m referring to the RC’s such as Etizolam & Clonazolam.
    I had a pretty nasty 2 week black hole a couple years ago due to clonazolam. Do you think this is the best group to discuss benzo analogues or should a new group be created?

    • Yes, I was heavily addicted to Clonazolam for about 3 months. I tried Etizolam first, and that’s what got me hooked.
      Clonazolam is one of, if not the most potent benzodiazepine on earth. The sense of calmness and well being that it gave me was incredibly powerful, yet so subtle. It was the perfect drug in my eyes. It was the answer to all of my…[Read more]

      • XCIX Wow I can’t imagine what would’ve happened to me if I’d have went 3 months on the stuff. Your story is literally identical to mine albeit the longer duration. Everything that happened to me & everything I did during that period was told to me second hand from friends & family. Of all the various drug use I’ve had, it was by far the scariest…[Read more]

        • I was taking it in pill form. It was the easiest for me, because I could just stick some in my wallet and take them wherever I was going, and pop em whenever. I also drank vodka while I was on them, and I’m not a big drinker at all. My habit was completely out of control, I would take 2-3mg in the morning just to get going, which is like triple…[Read more]

    • I’ve never experienced them but am interested to learn about them. Benzos, in general, are pretty dangerous, I imagine taking it to RC status is as well

      • Very dangerous. In my mind there’s 2 reasons specifically:
        1) Clonazolam itself is VERY POTENT. If I had to compare, I would say mg for mg it’s about 4-5x stronger than Xanax & lasts much longer
        2) Having it available as a RC means it’s WAAAAY too easy to get access to large amounts of it for dirt cheap (same applies to the other RCs & benzo…[Read more]

    Benzos have no effect on me however i found a drug callled buspar for anxiety and cocaine adicion that’s perscribed to me i snort it and it feels like huge rush of calmness and euphoria that i guess benzo’s give be careful with benzos blackouts and addiction isn’t fun

  • enzyme posted an update in the group Group logo of BenzodiazepineBenzodiazepine 9 months ago

    But how many benzodiazepines have you tried. And can you name them all.

    • I’ve tried oxazepam first but is wasn’t strong enough. Then i got my hands on alprazolam (xanax) and got addicted to it.
