7 months today with a great window all day! What a nice suprise for me. Felt good mentally however physically still not there yet or afraid to push it. In the last month have started with diet changes. Dropped dairy products, most all red meat, all nightshade fruits and veggies. It seems to be helping alot. I have been making a special crock pot chicken, cabbage, carrots, onions, green bean and peas dish for myself daily to clear skin problems and it’s working quite well. Ad salt pepper garlic and a couple of chicken bullion cubes and it’s pretty tasty as well. I’m looking forward to more of these good days, what a long strange trip it’s been!! I choose not to fill any of physic drugs thE doc wanted to try on me in the last 7 months and now I’m glad I don’t have them to taper.

15 years Xanax multiple fast tapers
30 day rehab 10 years ago unsusfull
Home tapers cutting pills
Liquid K taper
Two year slow taper finished July 11 17
7 month free from benzodiazepines today!!

Does anyone experience symptoms after being out in the sun?

Brainwashed Benzo Buddies members check soap, deodorant, perfume for alcohol

I have a theory...
« on: July 14, 2017, 07:39:22 am »

[Buddie]

Considering that any tiny bit of alcohol on things like deodorant, soap, perfume can cause a noticeable effect on me. Should we use GABAA Antagonists to balance things out? Or does natural glutamate from food already helps? Like, when people drink Alcohol and they have a flare up that last for days, they heal that flare up from eating???

what do you think?

I think you should look for soaps, and deodorants that don’t contain alcohol. Read the back of the products and look. Or call the 800 # listed on the back. And give up the perfumes since most do contain alcohol. Maybe some do not, but I don’t know since I don’t wear any myself.

And for heavens sake, don’t take any gaba a antagonists “to balance things out.” You’re off the benzos and gabapentin, so just get on with life. “Gaba antagonists are drugs that inhibit the action of gaba and produce stimulant and convulsive effects. They”re used mainly for counteracting overdoses of sedative drugs.” (Slight paraphrasing from Wikipedia; you can read this yourself.)

Natural food with glutamate is a good thing no matter what the circumstances. And many people who have withdrawn from benzos can never drink alcohol again while many others can. It depends on numerous factors-genetics, how hard withdrawl was, number of withdrawl attempts, number of “brain meds” involved and more. It’s really an individual thing as we’re all different people with different Central Nervous Systems.

So your “theory” is what exactly?

BALA admins crack the whip on mentally ill members as FDA campaign stalls

Like the failed owner of Benzo Buddies, BALA is delusional re: active membership i.e. the majority of BALA (or Benzo Buddies) members are not active, don’t do anything except sit and moan 24/7 about how doctors fucked them over.

BALA is even giving away money and still can’t get more than a handful of addicts (less than 1% of their tiny membership) to fill out the form.

I wonder if, out of desperation, the BALA gurus will start sending in fake complaints to the FDA?

Welcome to the real world kooks. Stay on your meds.

Benzo Buddies kooks have been brainwashed into believing you can experience drug withdrawal from antibiotics

Can amoxicillin cause withdrawal? Anyone's symptoms gotten better on antibiotic?
« on: December 26, 2016, 09:16:07 pm »

[Buddie]

I have a question for you all: is it possible to suffer withdrawal from antibiotics? Specifically amoxicillin taken solidly three times a day (500 mg) for four months?

Also, has anyone’s withdrawal gotten drastically better or nearly disappeared while taking an antibiotic? Like, can amoxicillin treat/cure benzodiazepine withdrawal?

I just need to rule that out as a possible explanation for what I am experiencing (explainined in my last post).

Thank you so much!

The U.S. military has been spraying chemical and biological weapons in open air testing over civilian populations since the 1940’s. They are called “vulnerability tests”. This is not a controversial statement. The military has admitted to this practice on many occasions and there’s plenty of documentation from the government to corroborate it.

Over the past decade, independent testing of Chemtrails around the country has shown a dangerous, extremely poisonous brew that includes: barium, nano aluminum-coated fiberglass [known as CHAFF], radioactive thorium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, desiccated blood, mold spores, yellow fungal mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide, and polymer fibers. Barium[F6] can be compared to the toxicity of arsenic.(4) Barium is known to adversely affect the heart. Aluminum has a history of damaging brain function. Independent researchers and labs continue to show off-the-scale levels of these poisons.

Then our sky was a gorgeous, deep blue. Clouds were a beautiful assortment of shapes. The sun was glorious. But people under 30, may not have a real sense of recollection about looking up every day and seeing this panoramic magnificence. Most of them are too busy texting or chatting on their cell phones.

In all these valuable reasons for not addressing this human crisis, the one that Dr. Kilburn has not addressed directly is the chronic assault of breathing/absorbing these now billions of tons of hazardous aerosolized chemicals and heavy metals over more than a decade without our informed consent. When one does not look for or address primary causes, then other issues can be blamed. This, on top of a government’s silence or refusal to respond and the corporate media’s complicity, make for an extremely dangerous combination that puts us all at grave and daily risk. As brain function is diminished, and other things are blamed for it, any population is easier “to control.”

If, however, millions of people are already on prescription pharmaceuticals to “calm them down” [long term, what is this doing to their ability to think clearly?] and, in addition, are breathing poisoned air rife with mind-distorting chemicals, then how clearly (if at all) is anyone able to think? How can anyone feel well and safe, if the very air we breathe is deliberately poisoned and is affecting our ability to think cogently?

Thanks to Baylissa Frederick (Bloom in Wellness) for posting the link on her Facebook page.

Here is a link to Benzodiazepine Information Coalition’s Website, a new resource for the community. It has comprehensive information which will benefit everyone and the “Many Faces of Benzo Withdrawal” video is excellent! Thanks to the founders and contributors:

THE WIDER MEMBERSHIP = HIVE MIND

JB: New member has read the Ashton Manual and can see she says it’s mostly psychological in low doses (true).
Admin totally ignores that part of his post, of course, and deflects it to “the wider membership”.
Sure, because the wider membership will agree with Ashton that it’s mostly psychological, surely… if Ashton says it… they’d never doubt that… right?
Umm, NO, they’ll pathologically disagree with that point! Which is weird since they exalt her above God when it comes to benzos! Hmmm.

i need support here, im 29 male
i’v been on ativan 5 -7 years. highest dose was 3mg
last year i was tapering with valium and finished 1 year and 3 months ago approx. i was clean until now.
after i finished tapering, about a few months later i started smoking weed and hash, smoking it for more than a year daily.. until i decided to pause and i couldnt sleep so i took ativan again, 1mg daily at bedtime for a week.
and than i started rapid tapering. every 2-3 days from 1mg to 0.75mg then 0.5+2mg diazepam then 0.25 ativan+5mg diaz and then 4mg diaz. something like that. at first i didnt monitor how much i take and when. but here i see i started to write at 26 april i was on 0.25mg ativan and 2mg diaz.
now i am 1mg diazepam and have horrible dizziness.5 days ago was the same as now so i updosed to 1.5mg for 2 days. the dizziness started yesterday evening. and overall i am on 1mg from 17 May. is it safe to quit cold turkey now? my hands sweat and look like i took a long bath
i also found out about the kindling effect now. if i knew, i would never took them again. the w\d now is alot worse. it was real breeze the first time.
atm i stopped drink alcohol, i was heavy drinker too but only at weekends and sometimes if i had vacation from work in middle of the week.
sorry for messed up post, i feel iritable and all kinds of feelings in my body and esspecially in my head.
and i still smoke hash everyday, do you think its a good idea? i heard it have anti seizure properties. but anyway i plan to stop when im gonna ran out. yesterday evening i had so bad dizzines i couldnt finish my a whole joint and i fel asleep pretty quickly, after few hypnic jerks

Hi […]. Welcome to BenzoBuddies.

First withdrawals tend to be easier, I agree. Subsequent withdrawals tend to be more difficult due to kindling as you’ve discovered. As far as smoking has to prevent seizures, it is actually the cannabiol (CBD) that potentially helps with seizures. Smoking will burn up most of the CBD so you are less likely to get the anti-seizure properties of cannabis by smoking it.

Alcohol is problematic for many people trying to taper or recover from taking benzodiazepines because it affects the same nerves in the body. For this reason it may help very briefly but the symptoms tend to come back worse than ever afterwards.

Sorry for the bad news, but it helps to know what to do and not to do in this.

Let me give you some links to start posting to the wider membership about your other questions:

General Taper Plans
Withdrawal Support

Here is a link to the Ashton Manual simply for information about the withdrawal process. It does provide a lot of good information and is written by an expert in the field.

Alcohol tends to alleviate benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms for a few hours, then the symptoms come back and may be even worse.
No, not if you’re not drinking.

There are things that help with symptoms and things that seem to make them worse.

This is best asked of the wider membership. If you want to check into titration, here’s a link: Titration Taper Plans
