Many patients find it very difficult to withdraw from benzodiazepines and antidepressants and have to do so very slowly and carefully. Until now this has largely involved guesswork and estimation using very unreliable methods. Cutting up pills, crushing them, weighing them etc etc. Now we have a tapering kit produced in The Netherlands, some 50 years after benzodiazepines were introduced in the UK. The drug companies of course would never dream of producing tapering kits!!! If I had tapered slowly in this way I might never have been bedridden or disabled.
