Are you searching how to do a Valium taper? Looking for a Valium withdrawal program that really works?
Here are just a few of the many Valium withdrawal success stories from people who have used Point of Return's Valium withdrawal program to taper off Valium.
First, I just want to say thank you to the fabulous staff at Point of Return (POR) – Alesandra, Andrea and Terry for all the help and guidance in, not only attaining a med-free life, but also greater health! The past year has been quite a ride (and one I never want to repeat), but through your help, the terrific POR supplement program, and friends on the forum, I'm on my way back to health.
But, let me start at the beginning. As a result of headaches and occipital neuralgia caused by muscle tension and stress, I was given a dose of steroids by an Orthopedist. Within 2 days of finishing the steroid, I started shaking…and it kept getting worse. After being prescribed Flexeril,Celexa, Xanax, Ativan and Trazadone (consecutively), I was finally given a diagnosis of anxiety…along with Valium and Lunesta by my OB/GYN. Fortunately, all were relatively short-lived, except the Valium. Initially, the Valium worked. My neck and shoulders felt better and the anxiety felt manageable. However, soon the muscle tension started getting worse, as did my anxiety between doses. After searching the internet for solutions: I found Point of Return, (POR).
My journey has been much shorter than many, although it feels like a lifetime to me. It was a downward spiral, but my body is finally beginning to recover physically. I'm amazed that 7 weeks of Benzos led to (for me) 6 mos. of tapering. Because of both physical and emotional set-backs, I had to postpone and hold my tapers multiple times. I actually tapered longer than I was on Benzos to begin with! However, with much encouragement, I continued down the path of healing toward a single, focused goal…to be free of the Benzo beast. As I've said previously, I've counted on the support of three very special people – Alesandra, Andrea and Terry – some incredible supplements, and a whole lot of determination. Failure was not an option for me.
I'm no different than any one of you reading this. If you think you're the only one that won't heal (and believe me, you're not alone), you will. If you think that your sleep will never return…guess again. It will. If you believe that you're the only one who will fail on the supplements, you're wrong. How do I know? I've been there (as have many before me). And…believe me; I've had every doubt that you've had. So while I still have my occasional "off" moments or days, the good days now FAR outnumber the bad.
I think it's so important to focus on the "End Zone". Of course, it's far easier to try to sabotage our own healing, and focus and obsess and blame our lack of recovery on everything but the real culprit…the pharmacologic answer. The magic pill. In reality, we just need to stay the course, keep our eyes focused on the prize, and focus on "what is" instead of getting mired in "what if's". And "what is" is the present: putting one foot in front of the other and crossing the finish line. So know that it's possible to begin healing. It may not be a cake walk, but you will cross the finish line too. Please, please, please trust the program and our fabulous team at POR.
Love you all!
Janet S. (MINNESOTA) Valium Withdrawal Success Story
My name is John. I am a 63 yr. old commercial photographer living in LA. 2 years ago i had a series of shoulder operations that left me dependant on valium. I had no clue how addictive they were. In Nov. of 07 i realized that i would have to double my dose and also that i did this, i would be "stupid" on the job. I decided to stop, not knowing what an ordeal I was in for. After about a week of stumbling, I found POINT OF RETURN on the internet. They saved my sanity and my life. They coached me and had product that really worked.
Tapering off VALIUM was one of the hardest things in my life. My sleep was totally messed up and without sleep, life can get pretty scary. Alesandra, Andrea and Terry were always there for me, always had time for my phone calls.
It has taken me 5 months to "get straight". I am clean as a whistle and sleeping great. Without POINT OF RETURN and the 3 angels who own and run POINT OF RETURN, it would have been a millions times harder, if not impossible.
John D. (California) Valium Withdrawal Success Story
Dear Alesandra, Dr. Code, Dr. Armstrong, Roy, Dr. Sadeghi, Andrea, Terry, and all participants in the POR Forum,
Thank you SO much for providing me with the ultimate healing path out of a very deep obscure iatrogenic reality that almost cost my life! I still have to pinch myself every now and then to believe that it actually happened! I'm alive! Totally in a state of humble awe! It's already been 6 months since I successfully completed my taper, and time continues to fly by now, because I am actually living life! Sure there are post taper withdrawal symptoms! How can it not? But look! I'm here! I'm active, I'm productive, I'm sleeping non-zombie hours again, and so so very happy! It is such a wonderful feeling to be able to live life again, to look in my husband's and children's eyes and realize that they know that I'm back, and doing well! Simple things all of a sudden became awesome, like hearing nature sounds, feeling the texture of various surfaces, the simple act of breathing... Wow! If I could only share all details here... It would amaze anyone! Yes, I have happy tears of joy! How can I not? Freedom at last! Whoohoo!
I would like to share that besides POR's nutraceuticals, POR's guidance, and POR's outstanding reassuring support, POR has introduced me to the most amazing network of people, and specially, to an outstanding group of diligent medical professionals that unlike several out there, treat me as a whole being! Customizing my taper and post taper program to address my special needs, including addressing the terrifying side effects of iatrogenic electric convulsive therapy to cover up for the irresponsible benzo overprescription, has ultimately saved my life, and set me towards a path of achieving total health! Every step that I've taken after encountering POR has not only benefited me, but my immediate family, tremendously! My husband and children now truly understand the harsh reality of going through iatrogenic withdrawal! All the yoyo symptoms mimicking non-existing diseases! It was so so hard on all of us! From being okay to all of a sudden having vertigo, dizziness, oscillating blood pressure, memory/speech impairment, irritability, depersonalization, derealization, etc. 24/7! We were all beyond exhausted! And to think that this all started with a simple treatment for my hypothyroid! Unbelievable how it escalated into an alarming psychiatric iatrogenic madness!
What has been the key to my success? POR's outstanding professional knowledge, diligence, on going research, patience, trust, phenomenal caring guidance through personal visits, working as a team with my local doctors, checking on my progress, phone calls, emails, texts, and POR's Forum support - my new extended family! Simple words cannot express my profound gratitude!
I look forward to continuing my post taper healing along side POR, sharing my experience out there to bring very much needed awareness, so others are not victims of irrational bad medicine, and most definitely, in helping those who are going through similar life reality!
Thank you, thank you,thank you, POR! You gave me my life back! Wow! Cheers to total health!
With profound gratitude,
