So i have been prescibed 3 10mg of diazepam a day for 5 years. I have been off of valium for a month now and I have experienced several ssveral seizures while asleep. Is this normal? I would iimagine that i should be done with them by now.

I would also like to mention that I did a slow taper from3 a day to a half pill then nothing. Been off of all GABA drugs for a month. Yet I know for a fact i been having nocturnal seizures as well as isomnia and uncotrollable muscle spasm. I had seizures as a small child. Im not sure if this is related or not. Benzo w/d is hell

Nope, you should inform your doctor. If you think you're having reoccurring seizures why would you not contact medical help?

Besides that muscle soreness, insomnia, etc are symptoms of withdrawal. You may not have tapered properly.

Was the taper medically supervised? If you were rxd for 5 years I'd expect that (on average) that'd be a fairly long and drawn out taper.

Yeah I began the taper in october. I cut down 5 mgs every two weeks. On the last week I went from 5mg of valium to nothing. I expected the whole anxiety and whatnot which is normal. But I awoke in a nocturnal seizure in the middle of the night last night..followed by a immediate blalcout to the next day.

Well just from my personal tapers, rather than reducing a set value, reducing by a consistent percentage seemed to ease any wds. For example the first 5mg taper is a good start as 15%, however after the next two weeks I'd attempt to reduce by 15% again, in comparison reducing 5mg again would be a 20% decrease in another two weeks, and would continue to increase in terms of percentage youve adjusted to. Mind you my wds were extremely mild.

It is slower overall but I've found it to ease my taper. Good luck and hopes for good health, cheers.

Shoulda went from 5mg to 2mg last few weeks, rather than drop out as is. Even then if needed half the 2's and that might help.
