>It took us 100's of years to conlcude the opiates were habbit forming, but only 20 years to conlcude the same about SSRI's.

I'm not aware of any research that concludes SSRIs are habit forming. It's been known since time immemorial that opium is habit forming. There were some spurious claims about lack of addiction potential of morphine when it was first isolated, but that was disputed fairly quickly. It's been a pattern repeated with cocaine, barbs, amphetamines and benzos.

>For the 2 cents it is worth restating, I have gone on and off opiates before, one time upto 120mg codine a day (Wisdom teeth), and found SSRI withdrawl to be more profound.

Some questions link. How long were you taking codeine for? How long were you taking SSRIs for? How did you withdraw from each? This feels like a recurring theme.

>I am permitted to take upto 1mg of clonazepam on a daily basis.

Incidentally, if you are permitted to take up to 1mg clonazepam as required, why did you need to go to the ER for three nights of insomnia? Did the clonazepam not work?
