It seems to me that we been told benzos were not harmful and now we are damaged why cant the pharmacutal be held accountable. The medical field refuses to adknowlage there is a problem in the US because it makes billions chasing systoms .why cant we sue money would me happy. I am surprised the lawyers aren’t pursuing this. This is another day I cant work.

The thing that people need to understand is that when they sit across from a psychiatrist or psychologist, they are looking at another human being who is very fallible, largely uninformed, and just trying to make a living. Just like the rest of us. The very last thing we should do is put this person on some sort of pedestal. This is dangerous. View this person as an equal, just like you, just trying to make it in this world. Don’t let the trappings of his or her office, or the piece of paper on the wall, or the calm, all-knowing demeanor fool you. These are just props on the stage, an act. They are as confused as you are. Maybe more. And when they reach for the pen and the prescription paper, know that they are GUESSING. That’s all they can really do.

It’s okay to bash doctors at Benzo Buddies but not okay to point out members suffer from Munchausen

I joined on to this forum 2 days ago during what appeared to me, to be a protracted w/d issue.
I found comfort in many of the heart felt dialogues.
However,
It has occurred to me, for some, it may be a munchausian circle jerk.

I sincerely hope that is not the case, as it would seriously muddy the waters for people truly seeking specific help.
If it is, I propose the construction of a new emoji to express this case so that this concept can self regulate.

I hope I don’t get banned for saying so.

Hello,

I know you’re new here, but there are some things about this forum it’s important for you to understand.  This is a very serious forum and it’s not a free for all. We have Rules and Guidelines here which we take seriously.  You agreed to abide by them when you joined, and one of the simplest but most important ones is:

Be polite towards, and respectful of, your fellow Buddies. We do not tolerate attacks upon fellow members. Any account created for the purposes of causing arguments and/or ill-feeling, will be banned.

We expect members to behave like adults, and not pass judgments on others or start arguments.  If someone else’s post bothers you, please just move on.  We take a very dim view of provocateurs here.  Many members are highly sensitive during withdrawal, hyper-sensitivity is itself a withdrawal symptom, and even something as simple as a “humorous” emoji may be considered offensive by some.  Here is a link to the rest of our

Rules & Guidelines

how about 10mg of ambien renewed every month for 2.5 years by my PCP, even though a female dose should of been 5mg and of course ambien should only be prescribed 2-4 weeks.

And then here is the kick in the ass…….when I started to have all these crazy bizarre symptoms, my PCP asked me, “Were you ever sexually abused as a child?”

I no longer “treat” with any doctors, they did me more harm than good. One decided my health issues were due to my gallbladder so he removed my healthy gallbladder……..if I stayed with doctors, I would of ended up polydrugged and/or dead.

Crazy morans.

You talking about Colin?

The rest of the internet has glowing positive reports about benzos.

It seems that the rest of the internet loves benzos and does not share the negative experience that we do. They don’t believe in side effects. They don’t believe in withdrawal syndrome.

They either don’t withdrawal at all or have a minor 2 week withdrawal, and this is with heavy doses. Some have gone on and off of the meds over decades, dozens of times and never experienced kindling or any problem going off whatsoever.

I’m in several support groups for issues like insomnia and IBS. Whenever a question comes up about what meds they’re taking or what meds cold be helpful, benzos are always eagerly suggested. Whenever I warn about the dangers of benzos, 10 people come to the aid of the person who mentioned the benzo to argue against me.

I have been banned from groups. I have been told I am fear mongering, am negative, am lying, am selling something, or have an underlying disease, and that I’m wrong. It is so frustrating. What is going on here?

Are we really a like a 5% minority of super sensitive people with weak gaba function or diseases? (5% LOL not even close, try something like 0.000001% of all benzodiazepine users – editor)

My doctor says that what I went through with Klonopin was rare. However, coming on this board assures me that I am not the only one who has suffered horrific effects from benzos. I’m curious as well to know the percentage of people that go through what we have gone through with benzos.

Its true. The majority of people have few problems getting off benzos. But you were banned, so that’s good because they were not good sites for you to be on. “I Don’t Want to Belong to Any Club That Will Accept Me as a Member.” Groucho Marx. lol.

Anti-psychiatry site Benzo Buddies threatens psychiatrists

These people should definitely go to jail for a long time.
I’m more than angry at these so called, doctors.. my doctor was an addictions specialist too.. I think they specialize in getting people addicted!

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I’m just having a hard time accepting the fact that NOBODY TOLD ME QUITTING KLONOPIN WOULD BE THIS HARD

Also- WHAT KIND OF “ADDICTION PSYCHIATRIST” STARTS A NEW PATIENT (me) ON 4mg KLONOPIN DAILY BECAUSE SHE HAD A BREAKDOWN… WHAT KIND OF DOCTOR RENEWS THAT RX FOR 2+ YEARS???

A doctor that prefers cash

The same doctor that has been prescribing my dad klonopin for the last 12 years when my dad is a very obvious alcoholic.

“People […] in from all over the country to see me”- yeah, because you are their dealer…

My new doctor, the one who insisted I taper off, did not believe my former dose. I had to bring in an RX bottle.

Hello everyone,

My arduous journey with benzodiazepine drugs didn’t begin until August of 2015. I started taking 10mg of valium per day. Fast forward to a year later, and my initial efforts at trying to cease usage commenced. Work got tough, and I had to jump back on. The new year started (2017), and I once again made the attempt.

Long story short, valium withdrawal makes it impossible for me to function at work. I cannot concentrate, I make mistakes, and it makes me an unpleasant person. This resulted in me being pushed out of my job. I am very fortunate that I got another one, but I am very fearful of ever attempting to come off again. I’m going to be making an appointment with a psychiatrist once again and just be straight with them – I need this drug to function and hold down a job.

For me, honestly, outside of my job – I feel the withdrawal process was actually ok. I haven’t had huge problems sleeping, although I reliably wakeup after about 5 hours of sleep. Socially, I feel like I’m doing ok. It’s really only at work where my anxiety level about whether or not I would be fired was over the top.

Almost everything else I can live with, but the lack of concentration, drive, and focus is very bad. Even with a gradual taper, it was debilitating. My job requires both drive and extreme concentration and attention to detail. I lose all of that during withdrawal.

My plan is to see a new psychiatrist, and explain that I need to get stable for a few months with whatever drugs are necessary, and then commence either a very long taper or an inpatient treatment center (if I can afford it).

One thing that concerns me is my aggression that is heightened during withdrawal. I really feel like it might be worth asking a psychiatrist for prozac or something similar in addition to the valium. Maybe even lithium.

I know a lot of people here have just as difficult of a time as me, but please keep in mind, I cannot easily just take 3-4 months off.

Today, it almost seems like I should just accepting being an addict until such time as I can attempt another taper or detox clinic.

Does it seem wise to jump on again so I can have a career? Should I be considering other adjunctive drugs, such as an antidepressant?

Proactive advice welcome. Thank you!
