>Some doctors are simply benzophobes, they are in my opinion, in a proper dosing scheme, one of the safest psychiatric medications as we have more than 40 years of experience with them, especially Valium.

I agree wholeheartly. Do you think out of all the benzo's, valium is the safest, short and long term?

>the benzo.org.uk site is largely directed to getting EVERYBODY off of benzodiazepines which is not proper practice.

Yes exactly, theres not hardly a postive word spoke about any of the benefits of the drugs. Its all focused on withdrawals completely. I think thats something to be aware of for sure, but in moderation would be better and not solely overemphasizing on the dangers. I mean you could equally have a site dedicated to effexor withdrawal, even topamax withdrawal.

Espeically when you bear in mind her type of work with the drugs was "Her main clinical work was in running a benzodiazepine withdrawal clinic for 12 years from 1982-1994." The site could use some improvements bringing a middle ground to the subject.

>The site is run by someone independent to the doctor he professes as far as I can tell.

I think you're right :-)
