Hi
As an acute remedy (rather than a constitutional), you could try Nux Vomica 30c, take first dose before bed and see how you go if it helps then best to take 3 doses of 30c in one day and that should kick off a purgative action of the conventional meds you have taken and help sleep. I have experience with both of these drugs, I'm currently coming off benzos myself after being on them for 3 years! It is an awful drug, I'm tapering off slowly but it is still a shock to the system because the liver and kidneys have alot of work to do.

You need to be drinking alot of water, and drink a cup of hot water and whole squeezed lemon first thing in the morning, your body is under stress so to counteract this you need to help eliminate the waste from the intestine to help your liver function. You can also get NAC and milk thistle from pharmacy, take 1-2 caps 3x per day. Eat well but light stuff like veg, salads, some protein lotsa fruit. Really need to get alot of good raw nutrition.

For more on your constitutional remedy you would need to either fill out the form here on the software or ask a homeopathic doctor, either on forum here or go see one. But the software is good if you fill in enough information.


Hope this is of some help.

P.s. Seeing as you have suffered with chronic anxiety and depression for long time you really need to go see a Homeopathic doctor in your area to get a full profile done so the closest homeopathic remedy for you can be selected and dosing monitored and you will get better.

I hate the way these pharmaceutical 'sweeties' are handed out so often by docs these days, to patients in need but ignorant of the side effects. But you have not been on the drugs long - 1 month? So you have got off at the right time.. good for you!.

All the best.. Rose

NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) is an amino acid which is great for detox of liver and kidneys when they are under stress from trying to rid the body of toxins. My naturopath put me on a megadose of 600mg, 2 capsules 3 x per day, Solgar do it.. only small pots though but should only need for a detox period.. could try 1 capsule 3x p/day it's better than the stated 1 per day that's for sure.

I know the list of withdrawls is pretty exhaustive I thank God I found a naturopathic doc to help me through this rather than opting for more poisons from the shrink to 'help' me get off the benzos!
Ok.. good to be in touch with someone who knows!
All the best Hammad.

P.s. I am also interested in this Passiflora-Q stuff as I'm not sleeping .. hence on computer late at night:( Where do you get it.. is this a herb tincture??
