Benzo hell


Recommended Posts

After recently researching Xanax withdrawal and symptoms was directed to this group. Been on a cocktail of psych meds since the age of 25 currently 58 years old. This was for the all so common depression and anxiety Diagnosis, started Xanax at 25 years of age with ever increasing doses up to 55 years of age. Emergency room visit at 55 years of age was abruptly taken off Xanax, and that’s where the horror begin.
