Ashton's popularity « on: February 08, 2017, 05:27:17 pm »
I’m getting impression whenever I mention Dr Ashton / Ashton’s manual to GP’s or Psychiatrist no one of them seem to reflect. I feel like I’m mentioning name of some unknown shaman?
What’s your experience there?

A lot of doctors in the US have never heard of Dr. Ashton. Some disregard her work simply because they “think” they know better. My doctor was receptive and was willing to use her taper plan for my withdrawal.

I am in the UK … and my psychiatrist had never heard of her. He also denied that my sxs were due to benzo withdrawal. He said something about there being no clinical trials … on benzo withdrawal.

So I’m in Ireland… same here.
In addition, the best thing I heard today from one psychiatrist is that my addiction at this stage is merely psychological .
Generally they are all aware Benzos are bad and they will be reluctant to prescribe it, but when it comes to Benzo addiction in their eyes it looks less significant.
Those two things are not in proportion…
I wish they are right though
