I think Janelle from 16 & Pregnanat/Teen Mom has benzo discontinuation syndrome « on: May 27, 2016, 03:44:31 pm »
As I was trying to sleep off a horrible wave last night my wife was watching TV. One of the shows she watches is “Teen Mom 2” is a continuation of the original “16 and Pregnant” show on MTV. Anyway, one of the better known cast members is Janelle and she was reading down a list of symptoms that she has and doctors can’t seem to find out what’s wrong with her. Then I hear her say the doctors cold turkeyed her from Xanax to try and get all of her levels normal so when they do blood tests they will not be influenced and they also said they were going to do an MRI. On the after show she ran down her list of symptoms again and added a few and said she had been almost bedridden for 3 weeks and the doctors still don’t know what is wrong with her.
All of the symptoms she listed are classic benzo w/d symptoms and no one in the medical field on that show even seem to know what’s going on! So blind… And I thought Dr. Drew was supposed to be an addiction medicine specialist.
