Methods

There are two methods used to withdraw from benzodiazepines: cold turkey, or a taper.

The tapering method is recommended for several reasons. Cold turkey withdrawals are not only much more difficult to deal with, but they increase the risk of seizures and convulsions, which can be deadly. A slow taper helps one gradually wean themselves off benzos and minimize the negative effects of withdrawal. Between a slow taper and the natural remedies discussed on this website, withdrawal symptoms can be effectively managed.
