|Creating a condition that is stable as possible is the first pre-taper work. Here is how to do it:
- Take a consistent dose that you find best covers the withdrawal symptoms.
- Make or buy a liquid delivery form of your benzo.
- Divide that daily dose into from two to four EVEN doses. The liquid makes dividing easy.
- Take the divided doses at even intervals through the 24 hour period. That may be every twelve, eight, or four hours. Do not set am alarm to wake up for a dose. Take it as soon as you do awake and then take the rest of the doses on schedule.
That’s the “secret” to feeling better quickly and being in a good place for your real taper. Everyone needs to know this. Pass it on.
Just this simple pre-taper will surprise you and make you realize that you really can have control over this illness.
