Never have I seen as much nonsense about benzos....and other drugs. It seems these people are totally oblivious to the advantages of the benzos and are totally hellbent on exposing their "evil" natures....

There is no factual basis to statements such as "long term cognitive impairement results from benzo usage"....I have not seen ANY clinical or anecdotal data on such "findings" the site includes good old Peter Breggin, who, as usual, always finds the best things to say about psych drugs!

Ofcourse, withdrawal from benzos must be done slow as to prevent any possible ill-effects, but again and again, I am noticing a trend towards users lowering their dosage themselves over time...the exception is the alcoholic or recreational drug abuser...

Tolerance to benzos may occur (not always) in the first 2-4 weeks, due to a trend in the liver producing more Xanax-killing enzymes....also, the brain may produce less GABA....

However, usually one finds a dose with continued efficacy after this initial tolerance period....

So please don't believe everything those benzophobics say!

oh, by the way, i am starting LONG TERM Xanax therapy on Monday! Wish me luck!
