Hi Noa,
First, I'm just happy to see you back and I hope all is going well for you. From my perspective (as someone who has abused drugs in the past) I think a lot of alcoholics are simply self-medicating their anxiety disorders. Maybe that's over-generalizing, but I know in my case, once I started klonopin for my panic disorder I never increased my dose after 4 years . My pdoc claims the vast majority of his patients haven't abused benzos for their panic disorder either. I agree with Jay though that a lot of pdocs are hesitant in prescribing them (over AD's which can really hurt bp patients). Just my thoughts... Take care, judy
