Re: About to try BENZOS, PLEASE HELP song

Hello Song-

I think the most prescribed benzo for social phobia (and anyone please correct me if I am wrong) is Klonopin. It has a long hlf-life - so there are no ups and downs. Some people also have luck with Ativan or Xanax.

Regarding the "addiction potential" - in my opinion, it's nothing to worry about right now - especially if you have never had a problem with substance abuse. I've been on and off benzos for years, and have never abused them or have had terrible withdrawl - however, there are many people who experience terrible withdrawl symptoms. The key is to very slowly taper off - IF you end up going off of one.

Hope this helps!
Jerry
