  1. Bonnette, Benzodiazepine dependency and...

    Bonnette,

    Benzodiazepine dependency and withdrawal can be horrific. Many in the benzo community believe it?s barbaric to even force iatrogenically dependent patients off of them because it?s so...

    I’ll be giving you both calls, I promise you. I’ll enjoy sharing stories and catching up. We have Tropical Storm on the way! Sigh. I’m north of the lake so flooding, if any occurs, will likely not...
  3. Thank you, Patrick.

    Thank you, Patrick.

    Update: I spoke with my cousin who is an M.D. (a neurologist). He’s going to set me up an appointment with a colleague of his to discuss going further with a plan that’s more comfortable for me. He...

    KLD,

    I realize I forgot to thank you properly for your words and support. Forgive my faux pas, your advice was just as much appreciated.

    Thank you, M.E., I’ve added you to my phone. As I told Phil, sometimes I need to feel more engaged before reaching out, so please don’t be offended if don’t call within the next hour. Haha! I will be...

    Thank you! It’s always nice to have another person there.
  9. KLD, Yes, absolutely! Alcohol and...

    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...

    Yes, the inability to enjoy sleep can be a terrible thing; in time, it will likely return. Trazodone may help you sleep well if you can tolerate it. It can make me feel sleepy in an uncomfortable way...
  11. Thank you! What she said. Lavender may be...

    Thank you! What she said. Lavender may be well-intentioned, but it’s a very far complex and difficult issue than simply moving over towards natural ways. Opium and alcohol are natural, and we know...

    M.E.,

    I had no idea! I?m so sorry you found yourself dealing with the benzo beast yourself. OMG! I want to hug you right now. I?ll drop my information to you in PM.

    Love,
    Todd

    Thank you, Jim, how sweet of you to say. Hugs to all of you for being so compassionate to me.

    New Orleans, Louisiana, mon ami.
  15. Thank you so much. Yes, I believe her intentions...

    Thank you so much. Yes, I believe her intentions are pure and not ill towards me. I?m hurt and confused at times because 10mg of Valium a day is far from the peak of 4mg of Xanax a day. I can?t...
  16. Smiles.

    Smiles.
  17. Oh, no! I’m not getting denied. My psychiatrist...

    Oh, no! I’m not getting denied. My psychiatrist last year tried to detox me in conventional setting. Then tried to find me inpatient care when I was having trouble adapting to the changes in my...

    Funklab,

    It’s amazing the clarity I’ve received not being at my peak of use, even if used properly and prescribed, these drugs change you. Not being at such a peak on my benzodiazepine use, I do...
  19. Thank you, that’s so kind of you.

    Thank you, that’s so kind of you.
  20. No, I’ve always taken as prescribed by one...

    No, I’ve always taken as prescribed by one provider at a time. Sadly, it can still be deemed addiction, even in judgmental ways. I find myself just as dependent on antidepressants, even if not as...
  21. I may ultimately do that post-acute treatment for...

    I may ultimately do that post-acute treatment for the social aspect. Being that alcohol and benzodiazepines work on the same receptors and function biochemically alike, I may find I have more in...
  22. Thank you all for the lovely replies. I’ve...

    Thank you all for the lovely replies. I’ve reached out to a place in LaPlace I hope may be a fit. The man apologized to me for my troubles finding inpatient care as the American Disabilities Act...
  23. In need of possible inpatient mental health care

    I?m struggling with benzodiazepine dependency. I?ve been on them practically my whole duration being a part of this forum. It started with an Rx in autumn of 2006 for sleep, and was never warned...

    Chaz,

    Psychoactive medications can affect your GI; most serotonin is in your GI. Just something to suggest in case you?re on any antidepressants.

    Lately, I’ve been having greek yogurt almost daily and noticed a significant improvement in my bathroom habits; I highly recommend trying probiotics or eating lots of yogurt.
