===============================================
Actually the bboard is not illegal and is quite informative. I was in no way recommending that a medicine be ordered without consultation with the OP doctor's prescription. THEN the GP or other local doc can help manage. If the govnm't guidelines inhibit the freedonm of choice for patients based on benzophobia, opioidphobia, etc then this is what will happen. Also the exhorbitant prices that are charged in the US for such drugs compared to foreign countries that there is no doubt as to the genesis of this type of bboard for US citizens especially.

The Merck Manual is biased and confusing in my opinion. BZDS are in the lowest classification of "possible" risk for abuse and including them on a page with barbituates without quantifying the differences in the two drugs is irresponsible IMO. It gives the consumer the idea that they shouldn't go anywhere near THESE types of drugs if they are being compared to seconal and the like. It is incomplete and misleading in it's LACK of information and is part of the problem contributing to the undue overconcern about prescribing bzds.
