... H of a time getting a benzo perscription from my doctor, and have suffered through 6 months of SSRI crap, when I knew all along that benzos like XANAX and Valium do the trick FOR ME. It's just the "pop a pill" business is the reason WHY Doctors today seem dead set against benzos, and its BS. ... (25 replies)
... Withdrawal on Zoloft, huh? Gee, I thought SSRI's werent addictive- at least thats what I have been told (I didnt believe it when I was told that, BTW)?!

I am not taking it anymore- I am... (6 replies)

I am taking xanax which is similar, and i try to take the very least amount possible (0.25mg) once or maybe twice a day to take the edge off my anxiety (mostly caused by... (7 replies)
... Hmmm, interesting. The reason my doctor prescibed Klonopin as opposed to Xanax is that she said it's LESS likely to be addictive than Xanax thanks to its longer half life. She did stress that there is the risk of dependecy with all benzos but that Klonopin posed the least risk of that. ... (10 replies)
