Re: If millions are on benzo's, why are there only 20,000 members here? « Reply #45 on: August 02, 2016, 12:18:09 am »
Took me a loooong time to find this forum even though I’m on the Internet a fair amt. I didn’t know abt benzo w/d so didn’t know to search that even. Was just searching individual sx’s.
Ideally ppl find out abt this BEFORE taking benzos, not once dependent. I was hooked in a few wks only. Maybe it should be info supplied by pharmacies or something. Or by doctors. Idk. It should really be a written informed consent process that a patient has to sign before taking these – kinda like consent for surgery. My original prescribing doc at Hopkins still doesn’t believe me that I’m having benzo w/d- I dont still see him but wow!
Even when I found this site, I didn’t join for a long time. I don’t join many sites in general.
There is also some really negative reviews of this site out there- I can’t remember where but it scared me off at 1st. […]- maybe look into that and post a rebuttal.
Yes the FDA approves for short use but who reads that info from the pharmacy and so many things are Rxed off label- a patient trusts the doctor.
I wish so badly I could change the past and not take benzo or at least researched it 1st. I researched everything else and didn’t take other stuff- not sure why I made this epic fail. Definitely need SEO to have ANY search on benzo put info on benzo w/d at the top of Google! Is that possible?? What does it take?? Money?? Anyone have a friend at Google??
