Welcome to Psychobabble. I am sorry you are feeling so badly. I can relate when I was tapering down my xanax - felt very hypersensitive to noise, depersonalization, derealization, felt as though I could not form sentences or even think clearly to be able to do much of anything, felt frozen and extremely fearful and depressed - all of this on a valium taper, very gradual taper.

I don't care what anyone says, and will not change my mind; psych drugs can really screw up your brain (not saying they never help anyone). I think everyone should read "Anatomy of an Epidemic" by Robert Whitaker. Very eye-opening re psych drugs. Astonishing rise of mental illness in America despite psych drugs. More people on disability than ever -- there you go - if psych drugs help that much, less people should be on social security disability insurance!!!
