Comment from: 1saylor, 35-44 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: May 21

be very careful taking this drug. i was prescribed to take 1mg twice a day for 1 week and only when needed after that. it worked wonders for that 1 week. after stopping for a few days the "benzodiazepine withdraw syndrome" (look it up on Wikipedia) set in. Almost every symptom listed set in. i saw 5 gp doctors and 2 specialist and not one said anything about the withdraw. i was told to keep taking them until i almost killed myself and after hours and hours of research i discovered what i was going through. i have been off of them for a little over a week and the nightmare seems to be subsiding a lttle each day. i was a healthy active person that happened to have a so called panic attack out of the blue in January and it has been a terror ride ever since.
