> Unfortunately I had no say in the matter. I was in the hospital on the psych ward and the pdoc doesn't like benzos. She wouldn't let me stay on it and cut me off completly. Maybe not the smartest thing to do to a patient, but she did it.

That is really unfortunate... and not smart, you're right in my opinion.

My male-hating (okay, we can get into discussions about feminism, I have nothing against it), patient-experienced-with-PDR-hating, doctor at college did NOT give me back the dose I went cold turkey off of.

The ill equipped urgent care place which really didn't deal with these problems scoffed about it.

My doctor gave me back 50% of what I had which is still a half turkey in my mind. NOT good. But can I sue her 10 year later, or is it worthwhile, no.

It was an extreme reaction to going off a medicine completely that others may not experience. I hope nobody experiences this extent.

I just don't want anyone to have seizures, which is a possibility.


And ultimately yes, she was benzo-hating, and I was on propranolol thereafter.

Not necessarily the brightest move, since I was never informed about faintness or anything nor did she say I should have regular cuff-tests.

Fortunately I didn't fall over.

I think propranolol has its place, don't get me wrong. It removes the senses of anxiety, but it doesn't get to root causes (like GABA-A, etc).
