Damn dude, that seriously sucks. Did they try to ween you off of them or was it cold turkey?

I was taking Valium for sleep and I had no trouble stopping but I wasn't on them for long. BTW, Valiums are crappy for insomnia, they knock you out but you don't get REM sleep.

you are right and if they do work, they will stop working. I tried to ween off with doctors but they don't know crap about it....it got so bad, I went to detox center and did cold turkey....the addictionologist there knew nothing about protracted withdrawl....the shit hit the fan....and it got worse after 4 months where I almost went insane and lost all functions almost.....this crap should never ever be cold turkey...this stuff has happened to hundreds at least in the US...but you never hear of it cause doctors don't know about it or don't see it or cant diagnose it. MOst people go back on cause they can't stand it....
