I am just looking for a doctor or two to help me in my journey with this challenging problem.

I think people on this thread are reading a lot of their own experiences into a very benign internet article.

The link you posted is not a benign internet article.

It is a sales pitch from McLean Hospital. Please reread it.

Really?? It’s just an article. Not advertised on Twitter or YouTube or anything else.

Just a stupid article that I had to dig to find for after numerous upon numerous attempts on Google search.

I already talked to a doctor there that said you shouldn’t do more that a cut of 10% and that you can do liquid titration.

People here are a little overboard. Now I can see where the claims that this place is a cult are coming from (probably some upset ex-members).

The article does not say it’s going to be easy. Please show me where that is implied.

Oy vay! I’m starting to think this is a misery loves company forum and I really just came here for some help — not to be talked in to more symptoms than I already have.

Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so they had a benefit concert for the injured in Manchester, England after the terror attack. They raised $22 million. Where the hell is our benefit concert for those of us who got injured by benzo’s and Z-drugs and lost our jobs and are on disability and with no health insurance and trying to make ends meet? Something is so wrong in this world. The terrorists are Big Pharma and we are the victims.

Well said. Unfortunately the rest of the world doesn’t see it that way.

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.

Kooks ridicule cult leader, fantasize about throwing psychiatrists in prison

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?

Does anyone know if this could cause side effects. I’m almost two years off K and have terrible anxiety and overwhelm. I’m still on 20 mg Elavil and 10 mg Buspar.
