benzodiazepines are scary - EVEN when taken carefully per Rx.
HOME | WORLD BENZODIAZEPINE AWARENESS DAY | JULY 11
One of my recent job-interviews was with a woman suffering from benzo-withdrawal & after-effects SIX YEARS after she was off the med.
She suffers from devastating anxiety, brain-fog, has difficulty concentrating, joint pain & other physical symptoms - but her primary need is for a listening companion to tell her she's getting better.
The problem is that she's getting better excruciatingly slowly.
Her brain & CNS injury has cost her employment, her marriage, & full-time life with her sons - who are teenagers; they visit several times a week.
She is often unable to leave the house - frozen by panic attacks; yet this is measurably better than where she was a year ago.
Benzo after-FX can be long-term, even after short-term use. They're dangerous; I will never look at them the same way, again. Volatile, & unpredictable.
BZDS, PSYCH DRUGS AND PETS | WORLD BENZODIAZEPINE AWARENESS DAY | JULY 11
The Big-Pharm industry is aggressively promoting Benzos for use in pets. Please don't use them without asking about alternatives, tapering off, etc.
INTERDOSE withdrawal is especially crazy, when symptoms of withdrawal begin while U are on the Rx.
