Public health emergency: Benzo Buddies members unable to eat normal food due to cult brainwashing, lives at risk

Hell breaks loose after first meal
« on: March 04, 2018, 04:02:43 pm »


It doesn’t matter what I eat although I try to just stick to healthy fats and proteins. I don’t have any sugar, carbs or anything unnatural in the mornings. The minute after I take a bite of food in the morning is when my head pressure, dizziness and blurred vision come on. The hell usually lasts all day after my first bite of food but sometimes gets better towards the evening. The only break I get is for two or three hours in the mornings.

Anyone else?

Exactly that made the psych diagnose me with “anxiety and panic disorder”.

Newsflash, it’s called DYSAUTONOMIA!

Thanks doc. for the misdiagnosis and putting me on this poison, and completely destroying my life.
I told every doctor about it, it didn’t matter matter what i ate, i felt sick, became extremely anxious and had to spend the whole day in bed.

NEVER blindly trust a doctor, do your own research too.

Beware: Ashton disciples driving under the influence

Hey there, 6 months since I completed my taper and still having a hard time being stuck in a weird hazy, stone-y, anxious fog. I find driving very nerve racking, but I’m worried if I dont force myself to continue to do it, I will never be able to drive again, and that my brain will always associate driving with panic, even when I’m cured. Has anyone been through a similar predicament? I was on xanax 1.5mg for 2 years and then switched over to klonopin 1mg for 1 year before I tapered down to zero over the course of 2 months.

Unmedicated cult member’s mental disorder out of control

Excoriation disorder (also known as dermatillomania, skin-picking disorder, neurotic excoriation, acne excoriee, pathologic skin picking (PSP), compulsive skin picking (CSP) or psychogenic excoriation) is a mental disorder characterized by the repeated urge to pick at one’s own skin, often to the extent that damage is caused. It is defined as “repetitive and compulsive picking of skin which results in tissue damage.”

There are several different classes of pharmacological treatment agents that have some support for treating excoriation disorder: (1) SSRIs; (2) opioid antagonists; and (3) glutamatergic agents. In addition to these classes of drugs, some other pharmacological products have been tested in small trials as well.

Typically, individuals with excoriation disorder find that the disorder interferes with daily life. Hindered by shame, embarrassment, and humiliation, they may take measures to hide their disorder by not leaving home, wearing long sleeves and pants even in heat, or covering visible damage to skin with cosmetics and/or bandages. Activities such as typing may be painful for those who pick at their fingers or hands, or walking for those who pick at the soles of their feet

Was this poor person forced to stop taking their medication by the anti-psychiatry maniacs at Benzo Buddies?

As if I had Tuerettes . . . . . . . .

The constant picking of my scalp. I have a lot of little tiny pimples and I keep feeling my scalp for them.

Always picking…………….

Zopiclone causes cancer? Hardly.

Pretty sure I've got cancer...

Pretty sure if I do it is from Zopiclone.

I’ve had rashes all over my body for years, along with a swollen gland in my neck (lmyth node) for about 3 years (did you go to a doctor? or, were you brainwashed, by Benzo Buddies, not to? – editor)

Getting tested for Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma Having a biopsy on my glands and skin this week

Had blood tests today, should get the results from that in a few days

Do Ashton micro-tapers cause Alzheimer’s and cancer?

Longer tapers equal greater chances of cancers and Alzheimers disease
« on: June 21, 2016, 07:36:28 pm »


I just read using the drug for a long period of time including long drawn out tapers (6 months or greater) is actually bad and can cause Alzheimers disease and cancers. This oncologist my mom sees told me it may be an easier withdraw but the drug is so toxic that it can cause all sorts of cancers and brain damage the longer you keep putting the drug into the blood stream. He said choosing between a slightly rough withdrawal or cancer and or alzheimers disease should be common sense. What is everyones opinion on cancer risk vs slow tapers?

I have been seeing my psychiatrist for the past ten years. She has been prescribing me benzos on and off to get me through rough episodes. I was researching on other methods of tapering such as titration to get off benzos. I asked my doctor about this and she advised me it is very dangerous as it tampers with the chemical of the pills component. She explained to me that if someone who genuinely has anxiety and is taking the meds as prescribed there should be minimal effects of coming off the medication. If people take the meds as perscribed and do not take more than the recommended dose there should be no issue. I made the mistake of trying to come off my klonopin without her consent which was a mistake. My point is if a person is taking the meds as perscribed and not overindulging in taking more than recomnended there should be minimal discomfort. I got caught in the trap of reading horrible withdrawal stories and it made me not want to take something that is helping me at the moment. When my doctor feels i am ready to come off the medication i will keep everyone updated on my progress. My point is keep your doctor informed of your mental state and let him or her create a taper that is safe. I know the withdrawal can be difficult. Even if you feel you cannot talk to your doctor you should try. A lot of people get caught up with being hooked on benzos is because they did not follow their doctors advice. Think to yourself would you rather deal with general anxiety to deal with the consequences of coming off a dangerous drug without a doctor supervising you. A taper plan should bevgiven by your doctor. If the symptoms are unbearable speak to your doctor about a slowe approach. I wish everyone the best

I have read all of your replies. Again, I am only trying to look out for innocent people’s best interest. Please keep in mind that doctors go to med school and have extensive training in their field so I am sure that they are not oblivious to medications. I would rather take a doctor’s advice as opposed to people on this site who are not medical professionals. There are many risk factors as to not listening to your doctor, especially when it comes to psych meds. Unfortunately, many people get seriously ill or even end their own life due to not having their medication handled properly. On the signature of every member’s reply on this site, it specifically states to consult your physician before anything. Isn’t this contracting the purpose of this site. Also, many members on this site are unaware that this is all scientology backed information, which can be dangerous. Again, I don’t understand why a person, like most members of this site would go on a medication without even researching the medication first. Take some self responsibility. Again, to people who are on this site trying to seek help, keep in mind you really don’t know the people you are talking to online. People can be drug addicts, sex offenders, cult members and who knows what else. I wish you well and please keep in mind what I am saying. so called “doctors” like Ashton are not always the answer.

Thank you! Same to you! Also, at first, I was “upset” with my psychiatrist because the first cut of klonopin she made was a bit much. I told her about it and she told me first off, I was not ready to come off the medication because my anxiety was not under control and secondly, when I am ready to come off, she will make the cut smaller…’s that simple. I hate to see people going through such a terrible time with their medication. be honest with your doctor and they will work with you, not against you. If every doctor did this, how many lawsuits would be in action? Again, members of this site are not medical professionals and really have no business giving advice how to taper from such potent medications. Also, it is very unjust to keep putting such negative stories and brainwashing people how bad these meds are. Liquid tapers? I called numerous pharmacists, consulted with a few friends of mine who work for pharmaceutical companies and other professionals and they said it is ludicrous advise to be giving out. Please be careful who you get your information from, that’s all I am saying. Many members of this site from what it seems are part of a scientology backed group and try to scare the daylights of out other members with their horror stories. I am not being insensitive. If they would have researched the medication before taking it, which anyone should do, or possibly abused the medication we would not be talking about this.

[…] thank you for the clarification. BB is a very good resource for support to help people who are going through a hard time. Unfortunately, there are members of this site that are uneducated and feel they are capable to give medical advice, especially to people who are most vunerable (like […] for instance). Some titration plans I have read are completely insane, for instance, using alcohol to help titrate off a benzo! I called a few pharmacists and asked them about this and they told me they never heard of such a method. In rare cases, they explained titration may be used in hospital settings where a patient cannot swallow the pill. The only method they heard of was reducing the medication gradually. Some people may be experienced at this but some new members may have no clue what they are doing and harm themselves. Both benzos and alcohol are depressants on the respiratory system and can do major harm. I also noticed when people are desperate for more information and help, their concerns go unanswered, which can be really devastating. Many members (not all) follow scientology based views, which can be harmful. Also, as I advised, don’t always believe what you read on the internet. In plain English, there are many sickos out there. I did my research on this site and […] and other admins such as […], Benzos R Cruel and Meghan have been very helpful answering questions. On the other hand (and this was my original point), don’t take advice from any person. You don’t know who they are, what their intentions are and what their true beliefs are. I myself have been through a lot, suffered many years with anxiety and the purpose of me posting on this site is to try to help people feel and be safe. You may all be saying to yourselfs who is she but I feel that after all I have been through and have almost recovered fully from years and years of anxiety, it is time to give back and share some of my experiences and pass on the knowledge I have from doctors, friends and professionals that have helped me get through everything. I truly wish everyone well and do not have any bad intentions here at all. Unfortunately, some people do. Also, another thing I truly believe in is that medication is a band aid to fix the problem AT HAND. You need it when you need it to help you get through a rough patch in your life. The main key to success (in my opinion) is self discipline, coping techniques, patience with yourself and to believe in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself and learn to self cope, the medication is worth nothing.
