Default Timeline for withdrawl

Hi. I am on hour 25 without Valium, and it does not seem all that rough. My scenario in a snapshot. Horrific lower back pain, was prescribed Percocet. Four months (and 160mg a day) I decided enough is enough and stopped. Doc said bad idea to go cold turkey, threw me on 1.5MG Xanax 3X daily which did absolutely nothing so he switched me to 5MG Valium 3X daily. I was only on them for 2, maybe 2 1/2 weeks, plus the Xanax for a few days as well. I do not suffer from anxiety or depression, the meds were used to taper my symptoms from the percs. I am just curious what type of ride am I in for? Anyone know how long this will last, if it will get worse etc etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

So you cold turkeyed the 5mg valiums and/or 1.5 mg of Xanax? Hardest part is usually first 48-72 hours. If you can make it through that time without a relapse, you should be good. Withdrawals may include irritability, restlessness, low drive, depression & anxiety. I'd suggest tapering down over a week by going from 1.5 mg Xanax for a few 2 days then half a pill for 3 or 4 days and as much activity as possible/ socializing for the following days to keep your mind off going back.

So far though , great job! Try to keep it up, you're doing great.
