Helped Benzo Withdrawal
by GABA Ranger
Citation:   GABA Ranger. "Helped Benzo Withdrawal: An Experience with Diclazepam (exp104785)". Jan 13, 2017.

T+ 0:00
2 mg oral Diclazepam (pill / tablet)
  T+ 0:30 2 mg oral Diclazepam (pill / tablet)
  T+ 0:00 1 mg oral Pharms - Clonazepam (daily)


I had ran out of my Klonopin 2 weeks early, due to leaving them in a hotel room while on business. Surprise, surprise, when I called they were nowhere to be found. I take klonopin 0.5 mg BID, and was on my 3rd day without it. I was going thru hell. I suddenly remember a friend who gets diclazepam shipped international to the US. I called him up and he gave me 10 of the 2mg tabs. They were pink and white, hard pressed. In my severe state of benzo withdrawal, I took one.

+0:00 - Ingested 2 mg tablet, hoping it would ease the symptoms

+0:30 - No noticeable effects. I take another 2 mg tablet

+1:30 - small noticeable effects now, kinda just relaxed and chill. Nothing as strong as my regular klonopin would do at the time, though.

+3:45 - ok, maybe that second pill was a bit much. I like to consider myself experienced, having been on the 'scene' for 12 years. However, I got incredibly groggy and simply had to go to sleep.

+18:30 - I awoke, still feeling incredibly groggy.
+18:30 - I awoke, still feeling incredibly groggy.
However, the w/d symptoms were totally GONE! This was incredible!

Next day:
The withdrawal effect is still gone, and I feel somewhat lighter, but this may be due to the uncomfortable muscle tightening caused by k-pin withdrawal. I get my next refill in a few days. I think I may order some more of these to stop the sickness associated w/ cold turkey w/d.
