Diazepam Withdrawal

Diazepam Withdrawal

Alternative to Meds Center recognizes that there are better answers than lifelong Diazepam use that commonly leads to Diazepam withdrawal symptoms.


We realize that when users of this medication discontinue use without professional help, some of the most difficult symptoms of any withdrawal can occur. We employ safe and scientific techniques of Diazepam withdrawal help that ensure the experience of withdrawal is as comfortable as possible and leads to lasting success.

Diazepam tapering and treatment methods targeted at relieving withdrawal alleviate medication discontinuation symptoms and also work to address the anxiety or other symptoms that resulted in Diazepam use. Never stop Diazepam cold turkey as abruptly ending treatment can lead to symptoms of withdrawal including heart palpitations, personality changes, and hallucinations. Since withdrawing from this medication can potentially be dangerous, it is extremely crucial to speak with a professional if you desire to end treatment with this medication. The doctors and other staff in our rehab center create customized tapering plans to avoid withdrawal symptoms. Even if you have been taking this medication without a prescription, do not be afraid to ask for Diazepam withdrawal treatment, as benzodiazepine discontinuation is almost impossible to endure alone without support.

Diazepam is a benzodiazepine approved for the treatment of anxiety, seizures, muscle spasms, and alcohol withdrawal. Because this drug can cause physical and psychological Diazepam addiction, it should never be suddenly discontinued. Symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal can turn into dangerous health risks, such as seizures. Diazepam withdrawal side effects may include, but are not limited to changes in personality, sensitivity to light or sound, dizziness, tingling or numbness, diarrhea, or vomiting, nausea, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), memory loss, heart palpitations, hallucinations, panic attacks, fever, tension, headaches, anxiety, depression, confusion, sweating, irritability, insomnia, and restlessness. To avoid the risks of serious withdrawal symptoms, professional Diazepam withdrawal syndrome help is needed; even for an individual who abuses this medication or is not prescribed to it.

To understand why an individual encounters benzo withdrawal when they stop taking benzos, let’s look at a few factors. How Diazepam works – a benzodiazepine acts in the brain by making the nerve synapse more porous to GABA, and makes it less porous to Calcium. GABA is the primary neurotransmitter that is inhibitory. It dampens the intense impulses of nerves. Use of a benzodiazepine medication causes the body system to use as much GABA as possible, but when the GABA is exhausted and all gone, everything is over-stimulating. When a person is withdrawing from this medication, it has spent all of their GABA and therefore, the body is unable to regulate stimulus. GABA is the body’s acute inability for dampening of nerve impulse, and every sight, noise and sensation can feel torturous. The importance of having Diazepam withdrawal help is crucial during this time.

Protracted withdrawal syndrome is when withdraw symptoms are prolonged or drawn out over an extended period of time. Protracted withdrawal is generally blamed as the drug’s fault for still leaving the person’s system, or attributed to damaged receptors. However, what the person is probably experiencing is the chemical toxicity which is often what led to the initial use of this medication, and additionally now there are drug residues and damaged receptors. Such residual toxins can be still acting in the individual’s neurology as excito-toxins, and will continue to do this unless they are removed. At Alternative to Meds Center, we have found in the greater part of anxiety cases, that what the individual is suffering from is an accumulated buildup of neurotoxins including heavy toxic metals that over-stimulate the nervous system. Our professional team works to discover and correct the causes of the symptoms that resulted in Diazepam use.

Benzodiazepines are the most commonly addressed medications at Alternative to Meds Center as unguided Diazepam side effects of withdrawal can be almost impossible and can present with protracted withdrawal, extreme anxiety, and seizures. We use diverse techniques for this certain class of drug, which include: a removal of collected neurotoxins that are due to use of the medication or the individual’s environment, careful medication taper methods, peer support, naturally occurring substances that create neurochemical stability, and the relaxing benefits of several therapies including acupuncture sauna, meditation and massage therapy.

Do you ever feel like even though you have tried every way to stop taking Diazepam or other benzos, nothing helps? Have you felt like maybe your central nervous system could be over-stimulated with neurotoxins? With most individuals, rapid benzodiazepine withdrawal treatment won’t alleviate the issue since the anxiety remains even once the drug is gone. Alternative to Meds Center’s objective is long term relief. Each client receives an entirely customized treatment regimen.

We know this problem particularly well and have worked with one thousand people in the setting of a 24 hour residential environment. Former benzodiazepine users graduate each week at our Diazepam withdrawal treatment center. Family and friends are among the people who attend, and they are in shock at how we were able to honestly solve the problem, and how the participant has learned how to sustain a lifestyle which supports their newfound happiness. Professional counselors are here now to answer questions.
