Is there anything to assist in Valium withdrawal?

I've been on these types of medicines for about 7 years. Obviously seriously mentally and emotionally addictive.

After your body has built up a tolerance, and try to withdrawal, the symptoms physical/emotional can be quite severe.

Are there any remedies/essences to assist in this? Or is it best to ride it out solo, w/o any remedies interfearing with the recovery process?

I've had the feeling called derealization (detachment from reality, the physical environment feels/looks strange). Also a feeling of head fullness, pressure behind eyes.

I began taking nux vomica, lycopodium, arsenic album, and phosphorus 30c, 5 pills, 3x a day.

For the first time in 8 years I felt great relief from this symptom.

Every time I use this abc homeopathy software, phosphorus usually comes up as my constitution. But it never did anything on it's own, hence me adding the others.

I am male
31 years old
work from home

suffering caused by coming off valium is, derealization, obsessive, intrusive, racing thoughts. Time goes by EXTREMELY slow. Can't get out of my head,, escape my thoughts, focus on the external. Extremely anxious, agoraphobic, fear of fear etc.
My body is so sensitive coming off the medicine, that i have become allergic to many foods. I can fall asleep ok, but i will wake up in the middle of the night many nights. The slightest sound (bird chirp), slightest big of sun coming in the window will wake me up very early in the morning.
Completely obsessed about coming off the medication, it's withdrawal effects .

The cause came on one night, when I was an alcoholic and taking an antidepressant, I experienced a panic attack that lasted about 8 hours, and i experienced a feeling of depersonalization (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depersonalization), and had derealization ever since (until i started these 4 remedies)

This started 8 years ago.

I feel much better after sundown.

I feel better during warm/hot weather.

Thirst has traditionally been extremely excessive (anxious habit).

Once i started those remedies, it seemed to subside.

Been constipated ever since beginning taking valium 7 years ago.

My dreams are lucid, dreaming, but will wake up out of it with severe shock. No wake cycle at all.

I am medium/athletic build.

Diabetes runs in my family.

If nux vomica, lycopodium, arsenic album, and phosphorus are alleviating this problem of derealization, shouldn't I continue with them? I switched brands recently, and they stopped working as well, and I haven't taken them yesterday, or today, and the symptoms of derealization are back fully.

Any advice on the valium withdrawal?

Lycopodium, arsenic album, phosporus, and nux vomica sure seemed to be working for derealzation, and old emotions coming back.

i'd appreciate any advice.
