Are you searching info on weaning off Temazepam? Looking for a Temazepam withdrawal program that really works?
Here are just a few of the many Temazepam withdrawal success stories from people who have used Point of Return's Temazepam withdrawal program to taper off Temazepam.
After giving birth to my beautiful daughter at the age of 41, I experienced extreme anxiety which led to many sleepless nights. Having been trained in nutritional therapy I tried every natural remedy possible before asking my M.D. for help. By this time I'd been having post partum depression issues for a few months and taking sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medications seemed like the last resort. I reluctantly went down that path thinking that I needed them for a short time to pull myself out of a crisis. I was assured it would only be short term. I was prescribed Zopiclone then Temazepam and ativan when it did not help. I had no idea what would happen next.
Within the few months of trying to unsuccessfully withdraw from the meds myself, I'd worked my way up to a stronger prescription to get a decent night's sleep. Days were plagued with an anxiety I'd never experienced before and nights were terrifying as I'd wake up with my heart beating uncontrollably. Some days I was shaking so badly I could barely walk. Still I persisted in trying to withdraw myself. When I'd visit my doctor describing my symptoms, he prescribed additional drugs like Lyrica, Gabapentin and Seroquel--which did not help. As much as I hated to take any more drugs, I relented when he said I should be on the anti-depressant Prisiq.
Every ounce of my being wanted to be off these drugs as soon as possible so I could get back the health I'd so proudly built over the years but it seemed I was losing the battle. I was scared, no, terrified of where my life was heading. I have to remind myself that during this battle I was also expected to give 110% of myself to my growing daughter.--thank God I have a loving and supportive husband and family. My days were long and nights were longer. I know I needed to get help.
Enter Point of Return. From the moment I discovered your life-saving program, I felt understood and really cared for. Andrea's compassion was unparalleled as she listened and made adjustments to my program. When I hit a bump, she was there to walk me through it. I remember thinking as I went through my day, "what would Andrea say" then I'd be comforted and empowered. After 10 months of faithfully following the program, I am now free of all the medication. When I began the progam I thought that I could never go that slowly in withdrawing but I was wrong. I used that time to rebuild my health--body and mind. Most days I would meditate at least once--I became reaquainted with peace. Hope returned, I felt empowered to go the distance. And here I am, at the other side. I've returned to my life but it's better than it was before because I have such gratitude and appreciation for all that I have. Many thanks to Andrea, specifically, and the team, in general.
You walked with me through the darkest cave of my life.
Suzy L. (Nanaimo, BC) - Temazepam Withdrawal Success Story
I just wanted to thank Point of Return and tell my story in hopes it will help others. I started taking Temazepam in 2010 I had severe health issues, Colon Cancer, and severe neck issues. I knew that with taking Benzos there was no free lunch but I had to sleep. It started out fine, I was sleeping 6-7 hours with the medicine. Fast forward to May of 2015, I was sleeping 2-3 hours if I was lucky. I was somewhat in panic mode realizing my sleep situation was a disaster.
So the only option I had was to do a detox/rehab 14 day program. The more research I did on that the only positive was insurance covered 14 days. The problem was the program made little sense and people who did that said if you had taken benzos for any length of time the 14 day program was torturous and ineffective so I ruled that out.
As I got more desperate I looked into some programs in Utah, they looked effective but probably 6-9 months stay in my situation and $200-400 thousand out of pocket with no help from insurance so I ruled that out. So my third and best option was Point of return. I started in May of 2015 and did a ten month taper (finished the end of February 2016). I am now sleeping 5-7 hours naturally as of April 2016.
I can't say enough about point of Return and the people that helped me (Andrea, Alesandra and Terry), extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I followed there program and with magnificent results. I have continued to call them and get helpful advice even after the weaning. I did thorough research on my options and considered Point of Return the most knowledgeable and cost effective of all the choices.
Eric S. (California) - Temazepam Withdrawal Success Story
About 8 years ago, when I was busy raising my children, I went to my Doctor complaining of not being able to sleep. She told me that she had an answer for me and handed me a prescription for this "magic" little pill called Temazepam. I was very nervous about taking it because I very rarely took any medication, including over-the-counter, but I felt so desperate for sleep that I took the pill. It was amazing, I fell asleep immediately and slept through the night. I was sure that this pill was a miracle.
Fast forward about seven years. In October of 2011, I was having ear problems and went to see an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. He proceeded to prescribe a very high dose of Prednisone to take away inflammation and told me to take it for 10 days and then just stop taking it. From that day on, my life became a nightmare. Sleep was not to be had even after my doctor doubled my dose of Temazepam, I was having brain zaps, I was tingling all over, trembling, and many other horrible symptoms.
It was at that time that I became desperate for an answer as to what was going on. After searching for hours on the internet, I came across the Point of Return website. I dialed the number three or four times and hung up before I had the nerve to speak with someone on the other end. When I finally completed the call, I left a message and within about ten minutes an angel named Alesandra called me back. I was a blubbering mess and she was able to calm me down and told me everything I was so desperate to hear, and that was that I was not crazy and what I was probably going through was tolerance withdrawal from the Temazepam. Everything Alesandra said made sense and gave me great hope. My life as I had known it was gone and here was this beautiful voice telling me that everything would be okay and that I could get my life back.
After switching to Clonazepam to taper, I began a 10 month journey back to life. The process was difficult but with the support of the POR staff and the loving support that I received on their private forum, I made that journey back. It has been 13 months since I took my last Benzodiazepine and I feel so free. My beautiful life that I treasured so much is returning to me and because of Point of Return, I will soon be starting nursing school, at the ripe old age of 48, and I can hardly wait. If you are reading this and feel that there is no hope left, pick up the phone and make that life changing phone call. I promise you that you will not regret it.
