Valium Withdrawal Schedule

Valium Withdrawal Schedule

Valium withdrawal schedule planning is fundamental to tapering comfortably. Not every taper schedule will be identical for every person. Factors come into play such as age, general health, dosage and length of time the person was on the medication, and others.


Valium is sometimes used to transition a taper schedule from other benzodiazepines, as it is considered more of a "taper friendly" drug than some other benzo drugs. Doctors also choose Valium for a patient undergoing alcohol detox to navigate through the window of risk of heart attack or coma that can complicate alcohol cessation. While it does have its useful place as a short term sedative medication, long term use or addiction to Valium requires careful planning and monitoring to accomplish weaning off the drug.

WARNING: Never abruptly stop taking any benzodiazepine drug such as Valium as to do so can be injurious to your health.

The Alternative to Meds Valium Withdrawal Schedule

At the Alternative to Meds Center, in Sedona Arizona, Valium tapering will be uniquely tailored to the individual. The first steps that we want to accomplish involve assessment and testing to get a "snapshot" view of the current health of the person, their symptoms, history, and other information. One of the most critical pieces of information is the presence of heavy metals or additional toxic accumulations in the body, that can unduly complicate tapering from medications.

Isolating and removal of these neurotoxins is done through a cleanse process involving such therapies as:

  • chelators that bind to and remove heavy metals.
  • supplements that convert fat-soluble toxins to inert water-soluble form for natural elimination.
  • low-temperature sauna to release toxins through sweating.
  • bentonite clay packs
  • castor oil packs
  • ionic foot baths
  • mineral baths

These natural cleansing techniques eliminate the client's toxic load and as a result, they typically report sleeping better, improved appetite, more stable mood, feeling brighter, and calmer. It is at this point that we would begin the taper process. Tapering is slow, gradual, and monitored closely by the medical team including our doctor.

Targeted Nutritional Therapy

One advantage of clearing away toxic accumulations is that doing so enables cells to uptake vitamins and minerals. Heavy metals block uptake of nutrients. Now we can flood the body with nutrition via clean food and supplements, where lab testing revealed deficiencies.

This sequence accelerates the healing and normalization of neurochemistry and can make the reduction of medication much more comfortable by levelling out what could otherwise be some very harsh reactions during withdrawal.
