I was somewhat afraid of drugs until I was 17. Then I started my recreational drug use with cannabis that would eventually lead me to my current situation (just turned 20 and in benzo w/d); stimulants were my favourites but as time went on I developed a taste for benzos and opiates (even the big H, just once 4 months ago though; oxy was my d.o.c for a while). I’m not proud of taking any of them but as far as I’ve come I still wouldn’t take back the experience if I had the opportunity to.

Once I tasted one I had to try them all. Along with frequent alcohol use all I used to do before I quit benzos was take various drugs on a daily basis. Didn’t really look at it as a problem until it hospitalised me and I was never prescribed any benzos until then. Drugs counsilling starts next week

The thought of psychotropic drugs never cross my mind. After my mother passed away, I had a difficult time dealing with the loss, I miss her so much, I just thought I would have to deal with the sinking feeling in my stomach till it evenly stopped….but the boyfriend I had a the time and his neighbor who is a nurse thought I wasn’t getting over it as fast as THEY thought I should and convinced me to get “something” from my dr. The neighbor who is the nurse came over to my boyfriend’s house and gave me one of her Ativan’s and said, here, take this, it’s safe, get your dr. to give you this…..and like an idiot, I trusted them. So, I went to my dr. and he said, oh, yeah, it’s no different than taking a vitamin and gave me a prescription. WORST ADVICE EVER !!!!!! I get so angry at that, especially when I think about how my health and my life have been destroyed, and they’re just going on about their lives happy go=lucky……while I suffer in pain and misery every day. I find myself wishing for revenge, hoping that karma will bite them in the butt and hoping that they experience some kind life altering event that makes them suffer as much as I have. Needless to say that bf, is no longer a bf…..once I got sick b/c of the Ativan w/d, he had the nerve to tell me it was out of his way to come to my house….pretty rotten considering he and his neighbor pushed me in that direction in the first place.  

Setting stage for another cult suicide, Benzo Buddies anti-psychiatry zealots tell man just released from ER not to take his Prozac

Hi, I need Help ,

I just got off the ER – want to use Prozac to calm the anxiety and depression, I been told that Lorazepan (ativan) its only for panic attacks , and last few hours, I take 0.5 twice a day, but I don’t feel good, Most of the time I got symptoms, specially chess pain,
sometimes I feel good except for the little chess pain. yesterday I went to ER for heart beat elevation, they rule My heart is OK,
but I left the hospital with chess pain, I this point I want to do something, I feel that this is getting worse, I been in lorazepan for 7 months, just two month ago I increase to two pills a day, but I feel that I need 3.

I know I have anxiety and depression and I need something to deal with it. My doctor prescribe Prozac 10.0 ml, but I did not start taking it yet, I want a advice, I read a lot that is going to be worse, that I going to get two addictions and more symptoms ,

At this point I dont know what to do, but I need to do something, there are some supplements that work on serotonin, same as Prozac, I rather use Prozac than supplements.

PLEASE HELP ME. I WANT TO GET RID OF LORAZEPAN SLOWLY WITH PROZAC HELP.

All I can say is my personal experience with Prozac is that it made me feel real speedy. Not a good feeling.

I only took it for just under 2 weeks, and then stopped.
Thanks

I replied to you on another thread, but will write something here too. I don’t think its a good idea to add another drug when you are already having trouble getting off one. You now have one problem, then you will have two. There are sites just like this for people trying to get off drugs like Prozac.

Like I suggested in my other post to you, look at spreading your dose over several doses so that you are not getting rebound anxiety from it being so short acting or perhaps you could switch to a longer acting benzo and then taper off that.

If you need something for anxiety and your doctor has suggested Prozac you can always give it a try to see if it helps your anxiety. It’s up to you how you decide what’s best for you to handle the anxiety that you have.

Hope you’re doing OK, Snow4Fun.

I’ve been on prozac about 4 weeks now and keep wondering if it’s what’s making my anxiety peak too. Plus reducing ativan. It’s all driving me up the wall, to say the least.

Benzo Buddies member Pyoung: “I fell in love with Xanax”

Pyoung’s signature:

“Started taking xanax in the year 2007 for recreational purposes. I fell in love with it and got it every chance i could get. I got a steady supply and Took xanax/klonopin for around a year maybe more (not to sure). I got up to 6 mgs at most except when I was drinking I would do more. I stopped a couple times cold turkey because my supply ran out .. I finished a 30 day taper October 26 2011, And then relapsed in March 2012 on one bottle of Ativan 16 .5 mg pills and now have been benzo free since. Have been off Valerian and kava since sept 26 2012 still having withdraws”
