    Veteran with severe PTSD. Been taking 30-35mg mixed with 20-25mg of valium every evening too sleep. Been ongoing for many years, scamming one Dr after next for Rx.

    Even with heavy dose of Rx I'm still up a few hours later.

    On other medication HIV+

    Personal life very active, don't drink, smoke, surfer, yogi, swimmer, jiujitsu, judo, vegan.

    Only other narco I use is edible 420 & shrooms.

    Really need to stop this downward spiral, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    @Soul_Surfer... Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing. I'm happy to hear that you want to curb your drug use. I think your life will be happier and healthier if you're able to do that.

    My best advice is for you to find an addiction specialist in your area and make an appointment with them. They can assess your specific situation and recommend the best next steps for you to take. I really think it's the best approach. Addiction specialists are well-trained in all aspects of addiction and know way more about it than "regular" doctors.

    You can do this. I know you can. And we'll help and support you however we can.
