Hi Meri

>Its awful. I have no idea what GPs do when they get patients with aniexty problems. I guess try them on BuSpar, but.. then what? And thats not even recommended for panic. I reckon they just put people on an SSRI/TCA and thats it.

BuSpar is hardly ever prescribed. SSRIs are widely used for panic disorder. Older docs often prescribe dothiepin (a tricyclic). Have you ever tried a tricyclic?

>My 'mother in law' is on valium, she gets it no problem -- but I think that is because she has been on it for most of her life so the GPs view that completely differently. As for us young 'uns, benzo = forget it.

That's exactly right. Elderly women who have been on diazepam (Valium) for many years generally have little problem getting prescriptions. Young people (especially men I believe) are treated very differently. I've actually seen prescriptions for ONE 2mg diazepam tablet. Geez, I need at least 10mg per dose.

Regards

Ed
