Discussions that mention valium

Addiction & Recovery board

I'm trying to stay off of Ambien sleep med. It is highly addictive and I have been off it CT for 2 weeks. I'm still having some issues from coming off it so my doctor has called in Flurazepam which I read is a benzo. Everything I read says it shouldn't be taken more than 3-7 days in a row. Does anyone know about this med and how strong it is and how addictive for someone with an addictive past. I read about the "half life" compared to xanax and valium. None of that makes sense to me. I need plain words to understand. before I take this med.

thanks for any help:angel:
