Tapering off Restoril

I'd like to know how to safely taper off Restoril.  I've been on 15 mg for about 3 weeks.  I took it every other nite or so the first two weeks.  Then every nite for 4 days.  The last four days I've taken it every other nite, trying to come off.  I don't want to take this anymore.  I know I haven't been on it long, but I've read not to stop it cold turkey.  I do experience withdrawal the days I don't take it.  Any suggestions would be great.  Thanks.

Hi Angel,

I am sorry but it is a violation of our terms of use (guidelines) to give out tapering information. that has to be, and should be, done by a doctor to insure your safety.

I wish you the best and hope you stick around here to talk during and after your taper. You will find lots of helpful members here.

Thank you.  You are absolutely right.  I have put in a call to my physician.
