Hey guys I'm new to this, and was doing some research online and found these threads.. So anyway I've been coming off sub's gradually from 16 mg /day I felt totally fine up until I got to the .25 and I'm starting to skip days in between to try to get this out of me!

So the way I did this was (I have the strips)
12 mg for a month
8 mg for a month
4 mg for a month
2 mg for about 2-3 weeks (that's .5 of the strip)
Now I'm on a quarter of the strip every other day and skipping a couple days in between and getting awful stomach aches and everything I eat comes right out, sorry, but I take tylonel PM to sleep that helps a little. I just want to get off off of this...

Any help? Ideas? Am I doing this right? Please anything will help. Thanks

Hi tales of a trainwreck!

I am sorry you are having a tough time on tapering. So did you ever level out of .25mg.?? or are you having trouble just tapering down to .25mg?.
I see you stayed at 2mg for 2-3 weeks. I would say the same amount of time needs to be give to .25mg before you quit entirely.

Sometime when we taper to quickly the withdraws can be unbearable. I know you want off subs, however, you really have to be patient with this medication. It is really strong and the half life on this med is long too.
That being said, I would take .25mg every day and not try to skip days until you feel leveled out on this dose. I would even try to taper even lower if possible to make it that much easier on you when you do decide to stop.

Good luck!
