Dexox is for addictive medications ,so they harm anyone in Benzo withdrawal !

Hydro codone is an opioid isn't it? Is there another one you know of that is not an opioid ?

If you found a doctor that helped at all,it would be life changing as I have been to 4 neurologists in my six years in PAWS and I am the worst I have ever been,and all said the ONLY THING THAT HELPS IS TIME,and as I am 81 ,I don't know if I have much time especially since each year ,I have gotten worse!

Horrible,how can something ,whatever it is,cause muscle tension so strong that one can barely move as something has to go into the muscles to cause them to contract and you would think your body would eventually run out of whatever chemical it is! 6 years like this is beyond belief and under several neurologists too. I would go to the Mayo Clinic if I thought,they could do anything but I was told there is no help anywhere,so I continue to suffer !

Like you,I saw many saying it helped them,some saying it was a miracle drug,so I tried it and put 1/4 dropper under my tounge and within minutes my conditioned got worse,not better! Now I still wonder if I bought the wrong oil as there are so,so many out there! I bought the oil made from the plant,not from the seeds( hemp oil) as from what I read that was the true CBD oil.. Also I am now afraid to try another,plus it's expensive to waste ! If others find one that helps I might just try again as I am desperate to find anything that may help.

Are you taking an anti depressant now,because after 6+ years I am still getting worse,memory gone,muscles contract so strongly upon standing that I can't walk more than a few feet,tinnitus,head pressure,mental fog,and more and if an antidepressant fixed those issues,tell me and tell me which one! I am past desperate ,thank you.

Wow,why me – took it this morning first time and it increased my muscle tension so much I could not get out of my chair ! I had high hopes but even now 7 hours later,I am stuck in my chair with head pressure beyond the worst I have ever experienced and no let up with the muscle issues. Was from wholegreens.

Tue, Feb 5 12:59pm · Tapering off of Lorazepam (Ativan) in Depression & Anxiety

I was on up to 8 mg daily and blacking out suffering 3 concussions and broken bones so I told my neurologist I wanted to stop it. He switched me to Valium,40 mg,week one,20 week two,10 week 4 and 5 mg week five, then none ! Now over 6 years later I cannot walk more than a few feet due to muscle spasticity ,have severe head pressure,loud tinnitus and the worst thing,I have no long term memory! I tell you this because I am sure it was being taken off in a few weeks that is responsible so if he stops ,he must taper off for at least a year ,and as for me I don't expect to survive this cold turkey withdrawal as there is nothing that doctors can give me to help!
