Does your friend want to get off these? If she does show her the forum here. We have a ton of info in the health pages that are on the right hand side of the page. Read all you can on this as that will help too. sara
Can she taper down since you said she's taking a lot? Most addicts have a tough time tapering though. The thomas recipe which is in the top right of this page under health pages can help a lil. Hot hot baths, hylands restless legs for the RLS and melatonin helps with sleep for some. Although the physical w/ds' are hell, that is the easy part for an addict, they are usually gone in under a week, it's the mental part that we have to work at and the hardest. Good luck to your friend, hope she is really ready to stop, it takes some work, but so worth it.
