Psychiatrists sound alarm over the thousands hooked on the anxiety drug


Recommended Posts

Thank you for posting this, Ajusta.  For a couple of years, my brother has been taking gabapentin for pain caused by spinal stenosis.  He's aware of the drug's hazards but ran out of options for pain control.  As its efficacy has waned, he was offered a choice between opioids and benzos.  When he rejected those, the doctor told him, "You've already signed the 'consent to treatment' form," as though that somehow obligates him to accept whatever treatment the doctor suggests.  Pffft.  For now, he's finding some relief in medical marijuana and acupuncture.

Thank you Adjusta for keeping us updated with new info on benzos.  I sent it to my husband.  He finally read one.  Gives him a better perspective regarding what I'm dealing with.


Thank you so very much.
