Short term benzo use taper rates

Postby cayenne » Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:40 pm

If you have used benzos in short term on a regular/daily basis a long taper may not be necessary.

Always taper benzodiazepine medication whether used in short term or long term. Taper rates will vary according to duration of use and strength of dose.
The category of short term is estimated at 2 weeks to approximately 6 weeks.

See your prescribing physician for a safe taper rate applicable to short term benzo use.
Benzo Withdrawal Forums provides community support for tapering and withdrawal from benzodiazepines, but any changes to your medications should always be done in consultation with your physician. Please read our community rules here.

Was on 1.5 K and 30 T; crossed to and tapered from 15 V under GP/Pharm-D/P-Doc supervision from 9/2012 - 4/2013. Benzo-free 04/09/13!!!
