The side effects have gotten a little too much for me this week because they are hitting areas that are huge triggers – my eyesight. I’m an artist and design for a living. I’ve been able to work throughout this ordeal but now things are complicated because I have visual snow. I need to go for an eye exam to rule out actual eye damage, but eye exams are a huge stressor for me. I have fainted in my last two exams, and that was WITH Klonopin. What the heck do I do now? My fear is actually enough for me to want to skip out on the appointment completely which I know is stupid but I don’t want to faint. I don’t know what to do or how to cope right now. I cried hysterically earlier. The exam isn’t until Thursday morning.

Are we really a small minority, or is benzo w/d underreported and misdiagnosed?

With as many millions of people that go on Benzo’s, It seems like this board doesn’t have a ton of people on it compared to what I would expect to see.
Are what people on this board going through really as small of a sample size as it seems or are there countless others out there struggling silently or even worse, put on different pharmaceuticals to mask the symptoms or are misdiagnosed and put on something they don’t even have to be on.
Even online Google searches don’t seem to show as much as I would expect. So did we just draw the short straw in the gene pool?
A cult danger sign: A belief that only those in the cult, or sympathetic benzo wise doctors, can possible understand them.
drs don't understand and won't help, going batshit crazy

wasn’t sure where to post this as this is a rant and me going batshit crazy lol. I’ve seen like 3 different doctors. I’ve told them about the ashton method. And showed them papers and stuff. It’s like all these dr offices for the longest time writing scripts left and right giving me these meds and now they are not wanting to do that. I wanted to do the diazepam thing, but no doctor will support it. I’m gonna call the one doctor again. And there’s this place called monarch/pathways and I may schedule an appointment with them. But yeah all these doctors want to give me TRAZADONE. That’s all they want to give me. I’ve heard about it. Not quite sure what kind of med it is. I’m thinking it’s an antidepressant? I’m not a fan of antidepressants and my family doesn’t support it. But might try it anyways. I may do a taper method with my temazepam that I have where maybe I don’t take it one day a week and stay like that for a week or two and just go from there. just kind of lost. starting to feel there is no hope for me. I wanted to ask the dr I saw yesterday if I can just stop taking temazepam and use the trazadone? She has yet to call me back. Can anyone relate? Tell me what you know about trazadone? Your experiences? Your opinions?
