@polarthedog OP says he takes 10mg diaz 2x per week... That is not going to produce any significant withdrawal...

Also, no matter anything downplaying the seriousness of a seizure in sleep is precarious at best.... We are harm reduction not internet doctors.

And yes seizures can kill you absolutely, make you braindead or paralyzed

If OP drinks more booze than I picked up on and he is seizing he needs to go to the doctor.

In no cases here should op NOT seek immediately healthcare

If he's seriously having severe DTs he needs to go to a doctor.
OP said in the opening comment

“ never Took benzos daily but im on them for atleast 4 or 5 years.. im type of junky that mostly abused them ("big doses" 300mg Max), usualy i Took around 50mg.”

50mg twice a week with the occasional “300mg” dose for months would leave you in a bad position.Not as bad as someone dosing 4x a day but because Valium last so long in your system it’s gonna be far from easy , when I did my taper the thing I focused on first was decreasing the frequency I dosed, I went from 4x a day to 3x then 2x then 1 time a day which would be in the morning , I started adjusting the dose to what was comfortable along the way which was always a decrease when you looked at it in a 24 hr period ,

I stand clarified, only had time to glance at the thread while at work

Still only one answer here: OP needs medical attention

dude!!

this could be a number of serious medical issues

if you cannot urinate, go the hospital!! Inability to urinate is usually a sign of major issues and potentially organ damage.

are you hydrated?!

I'm begging you to go to the doctor :(

I swear I feel like I'm reading someone documenting their slow progression towards death because they didn't go to the doctor.

10mg of valium is not going to save you from a 300mg withdrawal, fuck everything man, fuck the advice, you need to go to a doctor if what you are saying is true.

first, be completely honest about what is happening, leave nothing out. Never lie to your doctor, if you do you are only hurting yourself.

Doctors don't care about anything other than figuring out what is wrong with you and helping you heal from it. That's their entire job. They don't judge people.

From one adult to another - yes, tell your doc about the benzos. You are only hurting yourself by hiding that from them.

are you not having extreme anxiety right now? I wonder how you are even functioning with that level of withdrawal

Only 1% of benzo/alcoholics ever experience seizures, DTs, etc... but when they do it's a matter of life and death. People literally die from this man.

I wouldn't wait to monday to see a doctor, how much valium do you have left? you need to take more than 10mg (if this is just benzo/alc withdrawal - I feel like it may be more than that at this point)

I'm still really unclear as to how much you are dependent on, if you drink, etc

but at least you have some valium, which you should continue to take every few hours, keep it in your system

you don't want another seizure, it's really bad for your brain/body

every seizure is like a russian roulette for permanent brain/body injry - oh it also kills a lot of brain cells each time, it's basically your brain being electrocuted

but yeah man if you were taking 300mg even once per week, for an amount of time... and then suddenly stopped... that is definitely very dangerous

yeah man, wow, and 300-600mg of valium per week?

you can't just stop that! So dangerous! You need to taper at least!

wow

you went 10 days cold turkey on both benzo + alcohol and seized?

Please take another valium right now man jeez

I would suggest you take AT LEAST 20mg valium until the doctor on monday

if you feel fine after 10mg, thats great, but take 5mg every 6-8 hours at least, trust me

that's highly commendable, most addicts including myself do not have the self will to cold turkey like that, also it is very dangerous!

do you know anything about the world of recovery? AA meetings? therapy? anything like that?

Alcohol and Benzos like valium (and a few others that arent around anymore) are the only drugs that can actually kill you if you stop cold turkey, it's no joke
