Hi Lexhex, was curious if these will ever go away. I just came off Xanax with a Valium taper about 2 months ago and taper down off Ambien about 3 weeks ago. Palpitations are daily along with Tinnitus, just bought some Taurine this evening and took 500mg. I am hoping that I completely heal in around 1.5 to 2 years (from what I have read from others).

Hi bluesoda and welcome to SA,

 

We ask all members to create a drug signature.  This appears below every post you make.  Please update it whenever you make a change.  This is the preferred format which makes it easier for us to see your drug history at a glance:

 

A request: Would you summarize your history in a signature - ALL drugs, doses, dates, and discontinuations & reinstatements, in the last 12-24 months particularly?

  • Please leave out symptoms and diagnoses.
  • A list is easier to understand than one or multiple paragraphs. 
  • Any drugs prior to 24 months ago can just be listed with start and stop years.
  • Please use actual dates or approximate dates (mid-June, Late October) rather than relative time frames (last week, 3 months ago)
  • Spell out months, e.g. "October" or "Oct."; 9/1/2016 can be interpreted as Jan. 9, 2016 or Sept. 1, 2016.
  • Link to Account Settings – Create or Edit a signature.

 

Once we have more information about your drug history we will be better able to offer suggestions.

 

This is your own Intro topic where you can ask questions and journal your progress.

Please DO NOT TAG me - thank you

HI, Bluesoda.

 

Welcome to SA.

 

We have a members-only benzo forum where you can learn about benzo and z-drug withdrawal and ask questions.

I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice, but simply information based on my own experience, as well as other members who have survived these drugs.
