your benzo withdrawal word for the day - Iatrogenic


Recommended Posts

Iatrogenesis, or an iatrogenic artifact ( /aɪˌætroʊˈdʒɛnɪk/; "originating from a physician") is an inadvertent adverse effect or complication resulting from medical treatment or advice, including that of psychologists, therapists, pharmacists, nurses, physicians and dentists. Iatrogenesis is not restricted to conventional medicine: It can also result from complementary and alternative medicine treatments.


The full article is a little longer, but still very short.  I think many here would enjoy it.  Nice to know that there is a formal word for it.

Sweet G this is the word that my counselor said is what happened to me and so often does to people from benzos or other medications.  Still doesn't make it any easier to heal from, but makes it easier to accept.


Thanks for the article,
