Basically benzodiazepine medications such as diazepam are the medications of choice for withdrawal symptoms and may be prescribed by your doctor to be taken on a fixed or symptom-triggered schedule. Also the assessment of symptoms may be done at an urgent care center or in the ER to know whether additional treatment such as abnormalities in fluid levels, electrolyte levels, or nutrition are present or not and if present they should be corrected. Taking a light drink such as beer is not recommended. In most cases you will not require admission to a hospital and can be treated with prescription medications such as diazepam.

I cannot recommend in your case since I have not examined you or assessed the severity of your withdrawal symptoms. But generally when required in certain patients even dosages of diazepam as high as 2,000 mg per day have been administered. So each patient case is different. The dosage which one patient requires is different from another patient.

You are doing well to avoid dehydration that may occur. Though there is no specific diet, a balanced diet is recommended with fruits and vegetables. You may also consider taking a B-complex vitamin supplement. So if you have no appetite you may consider starting with a bland diet consisting of oats or bread and milk. Later you may add vegetables, fruits, lean meat, and fish.
