Sep 28, 2018 · Protracted Benzo withdrawal in Depression & Anxiety

@aarniek Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT )can help with Brain injury. I'm going through benzos brain injury myself (I don't think "withdrawal" is the right word for benzodiazepines. What kind of withdrawal last 6 months-years? When it comes to benzos, it's a brain injury. The recovery time/process from this drug is similar to recovering from TBI). It's extremely physically painful, not just mentally. My doctor prescribed me both Xanax and Klonopin at the same time (yes, I was on 2 benzos) daily for over 2.5 years… it's a miracle that I'm still alive. I did a quick taper (3 months) and now I'm about 6 months off-from the last dose. I'm still suffering and still in a lot of pain. Personally, I'll never ever touched benzos ever again. I have never been so sick and so scare in my life and I lost everything. I can't believe your doctor put you back on it….this called "kindling" and it will be more difficult next time you try to come off it. Please taper and take it slow. I'm so sorry you are going through this hell. This dangerous drug needs to be restricted.
