> So I would guess that unless you were taking the benzo for a VERY long time, tolerance isn't an issue?
Some people will need to increase their dose, some won't. But it's not addictive, and neither are SSRIs. I'm sorry, the ground can feel as wobly as you want, weird electric shock feelings don't make something addictive, they just make something weird.

Pardon me, but I think a big reason why SSRIs on this board are being compared to heroin is frankly, the ones making such outlandish comparisons never touched heroin. I mean, neither have I, but I don't go saying it's not like heroin either. What's with people and the Internet anyway?\

Everyone wants to convince everyone else on every subject they write on like they've read a dozen books on that very subject. Geez, we can tell you didn't do heroin if you're writing about Lexapro, for crying out Pete.

Anyway, I did take Vikoden for pain once, as prescribed, for a month. And let me tell you, I don't grab my Effexor at night and convince myself I'll need it or else there's some remote possibility i could wake up with anxiety, but I did with Vikoden. The hand that pops those things thinks faster than your brain can, and so by the time you realize you're attracted to the pills you're already addicted and need to literally shake it out of your system.
