I have narcolepsy and am currently taking 60mg adderoll and 60mg valium/day to counteract the anxiety from the adderoll. I have been very tired and think I need to taper off my valium. I was thinking of tapering 5/mg every 10 days of the Valium down to 20-30/mg and see how I feel. Is this safe? I cannot talk to my doctor due to insurance problems.
Also I should mention that, in the past 2 weeks I have been having major dizzy spells, shortness of breath, extreme confusion, tingling in my extremities, and not making sense when I talk due to the confusion. I had to quit my job and stop going to school. I have been bed-bound for a week. Also, month ago, I completely lost my appetite (which has never happened before). I went to the hospital, EKG is clear, and the doctor told me to get off the Valium because I was on way too much and it was the cause of all my problems. I am going to follow up with a primary as soon as my insurance is good. But could all these symptoms be a result of the medications I'm taking, I am a little skeptical?
