I am wondering if anyone has heard from Please, she has not been on since May 1, this year. Please was having a rough time, but she would come on and ask for help and she read all she could to try to help her situation. For those who knew Please, really knew her, she was a caring person and was trying so hard to get off of the benzo that was making her so very sick. We shared some Pm’s and I know others heard from her also. Worried and hope that someone has heard from her and she is doing better, or just needed to get away for a bit.  :(

Stevie Nicks snorted so much cocaine she burned a hole in her nose but Klonopin is more deadly than coke? Does Stevie have brain damage from drug abuse?

Stevie Nicks’ $1 million cocaine habit, fueled by her wild affair with married Mick Fleetwood, burned a hole in her nose so big she took the drug through her private parts, reveals new book

  • Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks was so addicted to cocaine, alcohol and Quaaludes she blacked out and nearly overdosed repeatedly
  • She wore gold and turquoise bottle inlaid with diamonds around her neck so she was never without coke
  • To avoid body searches by customs in Europe, they hired Hitler’s private rail car complete with the elderly attendant who served the Fuhrer
She quickly descended into drug hell and became addicted to cocaine, alcohol, Quaaludes to sleep, and cigarettes – until her system broke down and she started having nosebleeds, falls on stage, blackouts and near overdoses.
She bought $1 million worth of cocaine and it burned a hole in her nose the size of a dime. Rumors spread that she had to have the drug blown up her derriere by an assistant.
“There was no way to get off the white horse and I didn’t want to,” the now 66-year-old Nicks said. “I was the worst drug addict.”

Benzo Buddies lunatic rages at Roche Pharmaceuticals

I am Fuming right now after a call with Roche pharmaceuticals

So I just called Roche Pharmaceuticals, the company that produces/makes Klonopin. I explained to them that I am going to be tapering off Klonopin and wanted some advice. They WOULD NOT help me and could care less when I told them some of the discontinuation effects that klonopin has on people. They told me it was out of their control and they also could not help with a taper plan. I explained to them that my doctor did give me a taper plan that was a little too rapid for me in the past and I am preparing and I just wanted a second opinion before I started my taper. I told them I was calling them for a second opinion since they make the pills and know how the pills are chemically produced. The answer was exactly as the “I’M SORRY, WE CANNOT HELP YOU”. Anyway, if I ever doubted benzobuddies in the past, now I really don’t. You were all right from the beginning. Doctor’s pharmaceutical companies and all the rest of them are completely helpless and useless. I guess it is up to us to be our own doctors and just help our selves and hope for the best. Sorry, I just needed to vent. ROCHE PHARMACEUTICALS are pure evil!!!!!!

I’ve recently went back onto klonopin. My libido has come back once two nights ago. And now again. Just now. My libido is back. I attribute this to my lack of stress. I no longer stress. .25 mg of klonopin stabalized my brain.. I no longer suffer from lack of emotions. My emotions are fully ranged. . . ::)I’ve recently went back onto klonopin.

Kook claims dozens of symptoms after two months of sporadic Klonopin use

This is why you don't stop Benzos abruptly

Sorry if this post is going to ramble. I just wanted to let people know that abrupt discontinuation of a benzodiazepine has real consequences and risks even if it was only used intermittently on low doses . To get an idea of how bad it can be, just look at what I am going through.

On September 11, I stopped using .25 mg of Klonopin. My use of the Klonopin before that was probably 1-3 times a week over the course of 2 months. Since my discontinuation of the drug, I have experienced a lot of symptoms. The physical symptoms have been:

Akathisia / Restless Leg Syndrome
Paresthesia ( Primarily Stabbing and Burning sensations in my feet but other areas of my body as well)
Muscle Twitching and Tremors
Vibration feeling in my chest, head, and thighs
Brutal Insomnia
Ringing in the ears / Tinnitus
Heart Palpitations ( pounding heart, fluttering / probable pvc’s )
Elevated Heart Rate after exercise ( Heart rate stays higher for longer than my normal after exercise )
Jittery feeling after any significant physical exertion ( exercise, going up a lot of stairs, etc.)
Chest Pain
Respiratory Depression
Electric Shock Sensations
Full Body Jerks
Sugar / Alcohol Intolerance

The Mental Symptoms have been:

Anxiety
Depression
Benzo Rage
Suicidal Ideation

BTW, I would like to mention that these symptoms hit me like a bolt out of the blue. 3 days after stopping the drug, these symptoms started up and then I was in hell for a couple of weeks.
I have had some medical testing done regarding the heart palpitations and chest pain ( EKG, blood work to check for possible heart attack, Chest X Ray for cardiac myopathy ) and everything came back ok. I am going to have some more testing done though I have a pretty good suspicion that the chest pain is not cardiac related ( localized not diffuse, pain is associated with movement and manipulation of the area, pain is measured in seconds ).

I am currently over 4 months off the Klonopin and I still am experiencing some physical symptoms ( diminshed paresthesia, heart palpitations, chest pain, akathisia, sugar intolerance, muscle twitching, tinnitus ) but amped up mental symptoms ( high anxiety, anger, depression). All of this is compounded by the fact that I am working in a high stress job and trying to be a good father / husband.

To put it briefly, I was an idiot and stopped using this stuff abruptly. Please don’t do I what I did. You are rolling the dice if you CT and you can end up in a world of hurt like I am or worse ( possibly much worse ). Tapering is hard and tedious but you will likely save yourself a lot of anguish by doing it.

Good Luck Everybody

A coupe of great inspirational movie quotes:

“You , me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

Movie: Rocky Balboa

“And we can stay here, get the sh!t kicked out of us…or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell…one inch at a time.”

First let me say I am sorry you are going through all this. I know how you feel.

Last week I ended up in the back of an ambulance and in the ER because I had quit xanax C/T and I was taking a very high dose. I blacked out/passed out and had a seizure, it was very scary. I don’t remember anything except waking up with EMT’s standing over me asking me if I knew my name. Thank God my husband was there and my kids were not.

Thankfully I am ok now, I am trying to taper down my dosage by .5mg once a week until I get to .25mg then I plan to jump CT from there. I also use cannabis to help curb the withdrawal symptoms, and cannabis has also been known to be effective at curbing seizures so hopefully I won’t end up at the hospital again.

BENZO CULT LINGO A-Z

Psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton defines “loaded language” as a technique used in brainwashing.

5150’d – getting locked away in a psychiatric ward, see The Funny House

Benzo Belly – gastroenterologic system affected, including the organs from mouth to anus

Benzo Brain – persistent or intermittent combination of symptoms originating from inside the head, head pressure, vestibular system disturbance and psychiatric disturbances

Benzo Flu – anything, anything at all

Healing Happens – meaningless

Kpin – the medication Klonopin

PDOCS – see psychs

Psychs – psychiatrists and psychologists (Seen by the paranoid cult as being the ultimate in evil and corruption on Earth; out to destroy us all by cutting out our brains with transorbital lobotomies, or zapping us into submission with electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), or zombifying us with selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Ritalin and Prozac. The cult front-group called the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a la Orwell, is dedicated to destroying these evil beings known as psychs, but who are really members of the fifth galactic invader force.)

SP – Suppressive Person, an evil person; someone who criticizes Scientology in any way

Squirrel – In cult jargon, squirrel refers to someone who is too insane to follow Standard Scientology Tech

The Funny House – a psychiatric ward

Wave – a period of feeling badly after feeling better; this is fairly common because withdrawal is not linear

Window – a period of time where one has relief from symptoms; maybe not complete relief but a noticeable break in symptoms
