I take one-half of a 1 mg pill, so 0.5 mg, which is plenty for me.

Have had increased nervousness as well as cognitive deficits today. Difficulty concentrating. Guess the withdrawal is entering "round two." Quite a ride.


Interestingly, Wikipedia notes:

"Alcohol, even mild to moderate use, has been found to be a significant predictor of withdrawal failure, probably because of its cross tolerance with benzodiazepines."


But the Ashton Manual states:

"Similarly with alcohol: a glass or two of wine is perfectly permissible (and even said by some to be advisable for health). Although it is important not to substitute increasing doses of alcohol for decreasing doses of benzodiazepines, there is no need to deny oneself small pleasures. Moderation is the key: there is no call to be puritanical."

At this point I am wondering if I need to give up beer or not.
