KLD,

Yes, absolutely! Alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal must be done under medical supervision. I believe my psychiatrist is comfortable enough in her assertion that by going off 2.5mg a week and then ending at 2.5mg the last week will prevent any significant problems, as it’s low and Valium remains in the system a long time after the last dose.
