Dangers of Benzodiazepines For Anxiety | Negative Side Effects
Originally thought to be a miracle drug, benzodiazepines were believed to be the cure-all for loads of different ailments including anxiety, panic, insomnia, stress, worry, alcohol withdrawal and trauma.\n\nIf it can be so helpful, what could possibly make it so dangerous? Benzodiazepines affect the chemistry of the brain. They depress the central nervous system at the levels of the limbic system and the brain stem reticular formation, which changes the way the brain responds to stress, anxiety, and trauma. They also enhance the neuro-transmitter ‘GABA’ resulting in a hypnotic, sedative state.\n\nA great deal of important research now indicates the damaging side effects of taking benzodiazepines longer than 2-4 weeks for anxiety and other ailments, which you can find summarized at the links below.\n\nTo learn more about the specifics, watch this video and then leave a comment below!\n\nAdditional reading material \n-How to Rewire Your Anxious Brain (on Amazon: http://octourl11.website/773f7189 )\n\n-“The Current Role of Long-Term Benzodiazepines for the Treatment of Generalized Anxiety”, Osteopathic Family Physician (2015)1, 19-25.\n( https://ofpjournal.com/index.php/ofp/article/download/364/298/ )
Pamela Deines écrit: There are those of us who got years of therapy before trying benzos like myself and was not effective at all. I live a life of drug free now, but life way worse without benzos.Lorelei Haart écrit: I wonder if It's ok to take benzos on rare occasions for example before a job interview? I took them for a few weeks but honestly I didn't feel anything and stopped taking them. I'm managing my mood better now with excercise and herbs…but it's not enough in stressful situations like interviews..blissy 19 écrit: I've been taking benzos (mostly klonopin) for 5+ years now, I've overdosed several times and mixed it with alcohol and self harm. But I continue to get prescribed. I've tried to stop taking it for good so many times but I can't get past more than a week. I'll find just about any reason to take a klonopin, I really want to stop for good but I'm terrified.ive been doing alot of research lately and i know it's a process but I'm still stressed out about it to where just thinking about quitting benzos makes me want to take one to relax.John Mac-Lean écrit: I've been on Benzodiazepines for a year now, from Ativan, to Valiums, to now Klonopin and they've shattered my anxiety and made it so much worse. My tolerance to them rises and I have also abused them heavily. I'm over 80 hrs cold turkey from Clonazepam after abusing 6mg in a day and I'm contemplating going to the hospital. Benzo's have compromised my quality of life completely and my friends say I'm not even the same person when I'm abusing them. Going on Benzo's was a mistake, and even after going to a treatment center. They prescribed me Valium after. I wish I never took a Benzo.matt mcclintock écrit: Everything you have said is what I have watched happen to my mom after the last 25 years of her being on klonopin.

Since 6months I‘ve been off. I have taken so many different anti depressants and none of them helps with panic attacks. Bromazepam and other Benzos are a blessing for people who suffer from daily panic attacks. Trust me, if you have a panic attack yourself and see that it keeps torturing you for hours you wish you had access to one of the Benzos. People need to watch the dose though. Never take it for getting high! Use it only for the medical application!alinabrigit raju écrit: How it causes body ache and headaches as side effectsGavin Mumby écrit: Paige, can I ask your advice? I was on klonopin for a year and non prescriptive benzos for a year. Stopped in Sep 2018 for a year and a half trying to heal trauma and co dependency issues. Lost my children and now after not healing for 2 years I’ve had 5 detoxes in hospital this year for repressed anger. I’m in hospital now for a final detox where I’m on diazepam 15mg 4 times a day and then for the next 6 days I’ll be tapered down. I have therapists that want to help me (I’ve also stopped taking mirtazapine 15mg). From what I’ve told you I don’t know what it’s done to my brain and how long before the brain returns to normal after this detox before any real theraputic work can begin?

A major problem with eliminating benzodiazepines is that there aren't many safe and/or effective medications that can help significantly with anxiety that can be substituted. Yes, there are other medications such as anti-depressants that can also reduce anxiety, but if they worked well enough, benzodiazepines prescriptions would have ceased. Also, it can take a while for patients to find the best anti-depressant for them, and the right dosage for that matter too – which of course, is another risk for patients. You are correct that psychotherapy is highly effective, but some patients will need more than that.
The medical profession have known of the dangers surrounding benzos for long enough and have had a lot of time to come up with a better medication. In the scheme of things, they aren't much safer than barbiturates. It's an area that still needs so much attention, time and research.Wendel Bolide écrit: Benzo withdrawals were the most horrific experience I have ever had. Absolute terror 24/7 for 8 months. I wanted to die. The words BENZO and LONG TERM have no place whatsoever in medicine. The best thing for anxiety is exercise and novel environment introduction. Well thats what worked for me! For things to change people gotta get out of their routine.John C écrit: Reading all these horror stories scare me, I have been tapering from 2.5 mg of xanax for almost a year now, I am at .75mg now, but I have anxiety until I take my daily pill of xanax. I have fell into severe depression while on this for about 5 years. I am worried I will never be the same. As anyone or know anyone who has conquered this addiction and has no more ill effects at all?Liza Dufresne écrit: Terrible drug. Ten month gradual taper at rate of 1.25 per cent. Spent most of this time in Epsom salts baths. Horrific muscle spasms that continue four years later.Lily Sallee écrit: I take 1.5mg Ativan for catatonia and 2mg for insomnia.Shaun Kearns écrit: I’ve abused diazepam and temazepam for 2 years every single day apart from stopping for a week. The withdrawals are horrific at one point I’d be taking easy 200mg diazepam every day and the same with temazepam if not more. The tolerance builds up very quick. Stay away they are probably the worst drug on the planet to get addicted to i only wanted to get rid of this pain I feel every day of depression and horrible anxiety and this happens to me. So far I’m 3 days off them going cold turkey. AlexanderDmz écrit: Thank you for sharing!
Benzodiazepines are really only last resort treatments for anxiety disorders. They can be effective in only >12% of users for long term use, but that doesn't mean that withdrawal symptoms will not happen. It's a albatross. There's virtually no Doctor sanctioned tapering process, except the Ashton Manual. You cannot quit these cold turkey. They can have nasty effects on others, everyone responds differently. These should be still, reserved for treatment resistant anxiety and even then, carefully monitored. But awareness needs to be raised.Anya écrit: I was on benzos with ambien for 11 years.. my psychiatrist just keeps trying to throw more and more medications at me.. switching to new doctors..

I'm a long time anxiety sufferer (panics attacks since kindergarten, OCD, GAD, PTSD, you name it). I have been looking for a new therapist but honestly it can be challenging at times. It's not impossible by any means but you definitely have to jump through some hoops and finding a person who you really connect with and can competently help you can be a long arduous process. Still haven't gotta a therapist since my last move, but finally the panic got so bad I caved and ordered some Etizolam (benzo analog) online. Worked wonders first few days. It has a weird reverse tolerance at 2-4 weeks so it should still do give trick. But I also can just feel it in my gut that it's not a real solution and a path back to substance abuse (was a weed addict for 13+ years. ) Thanks for this info. It confirms some hunches and motivated me to go get the long-term help.Johnny Beasley écrit: What about me I been on Xanax for 30 years and they told me nope you can’t take Xanax and Lortabs at the same time they will kill you?

I'm a benzo addict and maybe some first hand info might be useful? I have drug induced psychosis and use benzos for treating this and massive anxiety, plus for enabling me to function as a human being.

Social support, exercise, good nutrition etc etc is a far superior substitute than running for the ‘quick-fix’GolfLife écrit: I just watched your video, it seems it will be helpful for me in the progress to continue to stop taking this very addictive drug called Clonazepam to treat my severe anxiety attacks that I get every so often. I have been taking Clonazepam for over 13 years now. I have decided to stop taken this evil drug that my Doctor prescribed for me and never told me the side affects that I would be facing down the road if I would ever decide to stop taking them. I really trusted my Doctor on what kind of pills he was prescribing me, but again I should of read of did some research on the drug, my fault. I can’t change the clock back so now I have battle this on my own. Yesterday has been one week since I have not yet taken the drug, the first 3 days after I stopped taking them I felt good with no withdrawals but after the third day, I started feeling very jittery, very anxious, headaches, off balance, blurry vision and speech of words where broken. I’m not giving up on this cuz I know I can beat this, it just takes a lot of effort. I’m still working full time although it’s very hard. I forgot to mention my dosage but here they are 0.5 mg each tablet, take 1 tablet twice a day. So basically I’m taking 1 mg a day. I one tablet in the morning and one at night before bedtime. It took me about 8 months to get where I’m at right now, the first month I decreased 1/4 of a pill at bedtime then one month later I decreased 1/4 of a pill in the morning, so basically every month I would decrease 1/4 Of a pill every month until I was done. And that really helped me so far. My wife is very supportive, and is a distributor sales Of a top company of CBD. she’s helping me get through this, so I’m very blessed. I started taking Full Spectrum CBD Oil 750mg , one dropper (0.6 ml twice a day) . After the 3rd day of being off the Clonazepam and I’m getting a little bit of some relief. I really enjoy watching your video and reading everybody’s comments in which really helps me understand the withdrawals and the pain of this terrible drug. I’m praying to God I get through this safely. It took me about one hour to type all this from my iPad although it’s hard to focus on what I’m saying and typing but lots of corrections due to the withdrawals. Please let me know on your thoughts if I’m doing this correctly. Thanks again for your video, it was really helpful.Aquamarine Earth écrit: Thank you for this great video!Hartley Hare écrit: You're dammed if you do & dammed if you dont…high écrit: When she mentions taking benzos long term, is she referring to daily use or as needed use as well?Naomi Samantha écrit: I was going to take my valium today. Luckily I found this video. I'll try meditation for anxiety instead. I get OCD too. Do you have any tips for healing OCD?.BethAnn Shoenfeld écrit: This medication has ruined my lifeEric Horwitz écrit: As a MD good workAllen Kracalik écrit: Benzodiazepines are far from the only harmful "medications" being prescribed wholesale by the psychiatric and medical professions. So-called "antidepressants like the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and Bupropion HCL or Welbutrin are NOT proven to be effective and CANNOT be, since there is currently NO reliable procedure for testing the levels of the brain chemicals they supposedly affect. Prescribing these drugs is therefore pure GUESSWORK, hardly an ethical medical practice. Further, cholesterol lowering drugs like Lipitor and other "statins" are KNOWN to cause memory loss, mental confusion and liver damage. Since our brains are practically made of cholesterol, and one of the liver's major functions is cholesterol production, it's no surprise that the incidence of Alzheimer's disease has increased sharply, particularly among younger patients, since these drugs have been on the market. As for ECT, how can inducing a seizure be in any way beneficial? Plain and simple, there are three groups of people that CANNOT be trusted–the pharmaceutical companies, the FDA, whose officials are ALLOWED to accept payments from the drug manufacturers, albeit supposedly within specified limits, and the psychiatric profession, which is NOT a legitimate profession if it ever was, but has become a quack enterprise promoting unproven drug use. A footnote on the FDA: I still want to know how those high dosage opioids like Oxycontin got FDA approval.Hashaam Zahid écrit: Doctor !

Tremor, pulse rate very high whole body and heart beating, heat just like bounce . Please help me out this . I also can not trap off colonazepam beacuse i can not face the withdrawal symptoms. Please tell what can i do.AS écrit: Yes I absolutely agree that psychotherapy therapy is pretty much a waste of time when a person is drugged by a benzo and anesthetized.
The patient WANTS them only because they haven't been told what the benzos are actually doing longterm.
My experience? I was on benzos for 40 years. I am now OFF everything–, trying to recover from the horrific physical damage the withdrawal has done to me.
I'm so glad I'm off.

They were given in 50's mostly as Valium 5 mg tabs to a large majority of house wives for anxiety, stress etc, hence "Mothers little helpers" I don't think they should be given for long term use (more than 2 weeks), but they are given in ER settings to save peoples lives for other types of seizures and emergency medical issues as well. I agree with all the "negative effects" but its all the "just negative" stereotypes drugs get that we all hear all the time and that leads to a drug that may be helpful such as MDMA, which is being used in clinical settings to help PTSD and is having positive effects, to it being scheduled as class 1 or 2 (A drug with NO potential for medical use) and then it can not be legally researched (whole other issue). Some drugs are just plain bad but I wouldn't categorize benzodiazapines as "bad". Just not given out responsibly and Dr's as you say are not researching or informed of the long term risks. Just like marijuana was "bad", but after we finally did research into it, CBD's help people and people that smoke it for anxiety and I am pretty sure that after more research is done it will show definitive proof of medicinal effects. I see more of these "bad drugs" becoming useful tools in medicine, ie Ibogain for heroin withdrawal and other psychiatric disorder. I believe DMT, an 5-meo-dmt will conclude to have the some beneficial medicinal effects to us as well. This is just my opinion!.

My issue is Idiopathic insomnia and no doctor has ever taken me serious on this one. I need help to fall asleep, then I sleep well. I have never felt the "sleepy" feeling when you want to go to bed. So I rely in a low dose of clonazepam (0.125) every night. I am 60 and have been taking it for like 22 years. I know therapy won't help. I am also autistic, without an official diagnosis.Brenda Rodriguez écrit: I think it’s different for everyone. I was doing terrible with anxiety & PTSD, trying different med options. It was until I got prescribed with a benzo that my life changed!! I understand the risks, especially with dependency and withdrawals, along other issues, but everyone is different, and few clients cannot speak for many others. I’ve been on them 6 years only as needed, never had the urge to take more than prescribed, and never been dependent. Ever. These with my therapy completely gave me my life back. Never had no issues, even anything, everything improved for me. Again, everyone is different. I believe as long as a client has a good plan with their psychiatrist/therapist/dr and healthy check ups then I don’t think it’s bad.nedar giordano écrit: Intermittent explosive disorder is a common problem with benzosRamsin Pourian écrit: Thank you for your kind video. I will say that Antidepressants are just as bad or even worse than benzos. All of these sychotic toxic wastes are for human destruction. No kind doctor or a genuine carrying physician will give these to their patients. Today's synthetic doctors are all about destruction of human health and their main goal is to disable people with these toxic waste drugs so that they can get their incentives from big pharmaceuticals and this is exactly how it is because I've been a victim of a same licensed drug dealer. Thanks God I'm getting better day by day going to almost 3 years now. God bless you all whether you are in your healing process or caring and supporting a loved one. Healing will happen so just takes time.Blinkingstar écrit: Last Month went to a psychiatrist for the first time for my Anxiety.

Most anxiety… and the chances that your anxiety, though you are unique & special, is almost zero!David Gersten écrit: Excellent video. I’m an integrative psychiatrist. People don’t come to me to get on drugs but I use minimal amounts. Antidepressants are not a good solution to anxiety. SSRIs are the antidepressants doctors order. These are dreadful drugs that destroy libido, decrease creativity and interfere with the flow of emotion. I’ve been reviewing the research on SSRIs. They are no better than placebo and less effective than earlier antidepressants. Eli Lilly, the company that manufactures Prozac had their wonder drug rejected by the FDA for years. Studies showed no benefit. A number of the preliminary studies were corrupt. Lilly kept rearranging the statistics and. the FDA kept rejecting. The studies didn’t change. The statistics kept being juggled until the FDA caved in and Prozac replaces Valium as doctors’ “drug for everything.” Early treatment for panic disorder was a drug like Tofranil (antidepressant) and a benzo. I finished my psychiatry residency in 1978. I was taught that meds were for short term use while the psychotherapy was proceeding. Within a few months or sooner people were tapered off their meds. I see severe anxiety. Dr Peter Breggin has written extensively about the dangers and politics of every class of psych drugs.S Moody écrit: I don't get you people benzodiazepines are not meant to be taken everyday on a daily basis I have severe panic disorder and I always end up taking Maybe 324 to file a month not even all together I've tried everything in my power to stop a panic attack before I go to my last resort is my Ativan it is a lifesaver for me you have no idea I'm not addicted to them I don't depend on them I take them less than anyone I've ever known I've tried every single type of therapy for benzos and my opinion instead of any of benzos in my opinion ssris in any sort of antidepressant is so much more dangerous than any benzodiazepine or even opiate I have more respect for benzos than any other drug I do not miss use them abuse them take too much or too much in a day I thought this truck I have no idea where I'd be I have such bad anxiety it I can't even explain how bad is oh and did I mention I'm also in recovery from opiate alcohol hand amphetamine and meth addiction and I have not and will never misuse benzos I hate that stigma that or because you're an addict you can't have this certain thing as those are the only thing that will help me plus I wanted to be on something that I would not have to take daily because that puts me in a bad state of mind and that is for my recovery unlike you people that been taking them for years daily hourly for like 30 years that's not what they're for they're for as needed so people stop spreading some with crap about them the other people they've destroyed their life for me it's saved my life thank youLalitha Gayatri écrit: Good information ma'am.Rodney Daub écrit: I'm 43, was very sick then and now.

These Benzo's have a great benefit in real world medical applications and shouldn't be so dismissed simply because it has effects which I don't know of any drug that doesn't. This is a short term management treatment plan with better results short term then long to which you as the patient failed yourselves when not being aware of this fact…which leads me into Doctors,more then anything you men and women are 100% responsible for the sufferings these drugs cause,along with the FDA who sleep comfortably beside Big pharma with a nice printed cheque to look the other way while Big pharma hides information of addiction and side effects,but you doctors also gain income from havung patients go onto these therapies..you guys put patients on these drugs,you fail the patient to give them all the information needed for them to decide if the benefits outweighs the negative (which it never does), but what's worse is you fail to have a plan off these drugs which should be criminal…because trust me patients who get hooked and or harmed to the point where getting off seems like a nightmare no one is prepared for is the most disheartening and sad forms of inhuman experimentation you doctors practice daily, patients get hooked or feel they can't get off which sends their mental status worse into darkness because now they either have to feed their addiction while feeling like a criminal or they feel disgusted in themselves feeling like a addict…monsters,your all monsters those poor patients who had their lives destroyed reaching out for help in a crisis receiving a ticking time bomb.opiates and Benzo's,I never seen a worse practice…there's zero planning to get patients off these and often times,once a patient is ready to come off and have decided to get off they are treated like criminals or addicts for a fate pushed on them while income is collected,doctors especially therapist turn their backs on patients,push them onto another doctor,fail to take responsibility and or write a note which discredits the patients destroying their credibility so that yours can't be later on its sicken to say the least. That's not even talking about all the symptoms a person goes through for years just to get to a heal status if one can be reached.Anthony Enright écrit: I have been taking Xanax for over six years now if I dont take it it is hard to breathe and my chest and arms hurt.I was diagnosed with Cancer six years ago where I was supposed to be dead by October 2015 so I lived and one month later my wife filed for divorce because she met someone at work so i went through a three year divorce where I lost everything due to the corruption in the court system.So now it gets worse so I take it more than twice a day.It seems that I get really sick if I dont take it and I have been to a counsellor but at the end of the day it feels like the Xanax is the only thing that is keeping me alive and functional.Mark Daniels écrit: Over 6 years of diazepam use i began on 20mg p/d 0ver that time it has increased to 180 to 200 people/dLaz N écrit: paige i 'm on attivan for five years, are the side effects gonna disappear if i quit? or they stay forever?acidbath32 écrit: To get off Benzos you need a several things, first of all you need to get yourself some phenibut especialy if you are on a high dose and you've been taking it for years. 2nd you need to get some CBD Isolate, Third you nee dto get some ginger. Mix then all toether and they will remove any problems you have from the acute withdrawal. for the rest of the withdrawal you will have to exercise, smoke pot, distract your mind some other way. It is possible though and this has come from someone whos been through methadone, suboxone, benzos, etcNicollas e Meu Mundo Animal écrit: Im 23 years old and I've been on Paroxetine and Xanax ever since I was 17. Paroxetine I do take everyday, however I can live fine without Xanax, I only keep with me at all times in case I have a panic attack… I get them pretty often so it REALLY helps me, it stops the attack and calms me down in a couple minutes. Luckily, I have been months without Xanax and I only get prescription when I go to the doctor to get my Paroxetine refill in around 6 months. I truly don't plan on stoping having the medication with me, nothing seems to work but that, but I also know that those drugs can REALLY make you addicted so I dont abuse it WHATSOEVER. Its only something I have when NEEDED.Tay K écrit: Hi bit late very late I’m 17 years old male I’ve only had little psychiatric help and it’s not help at all compared to what benzodiazepines do all I want is to feel normal like benzos make me fell can my psychiatrist make me feel normalLaura Pakledinaz écrit: Great information Paige!! I am just beside myself with this detox. I'm super upset this is not even kidding. I feel like an animal that has been used for testing. This is not even a joke. I'm not happy about this at all. It's been a daily battle for 102 days. I want to get better. Is that even possible??Lori A écrit: I was given Xanax in the ER recently after having a panic attack related to perimenopause/hormonal imbalance. They wrote me out an RX until I could see my regular doctor. After only taking 3 small doses of Xanax over a few days I noticed I was having rebound anxiety that was off the charts as the Xanax wore off. My anxiety was 5 times worse than what initially sent me to the ER in the first place. I will not allow my doctor to prescribe me a benzo when I see him tomorrow. God bless all of you going through withdrawal. I just took it for a few days and wow it is a nasty drug.

There is something seriously wrong with the medical system, it seems that selling poison is more important than duty of "CARE".
A doctor that prescribes this "TOXIN" for longer than a month should be jailed for malpractice.
My father's life is absolutely destroyed by this horrible drug.C.S. Froggis écrit: I took them a long time (Klonopin). It makes you a zombie. You lose inhibitions. Memory and learning are problems. It really destroys your brain. It prohibits you from making strong emotional bonds with other people. And it is hell on earth to get off.Austin Luckett écrit: I have found Klonopin to be very helpful, however I take it with other medications called Lexapro for depression and anxiety, Prazosin for PTSD to help my night terrors, Quetiapine and Ambien for insomnia. Some people are different and I suppose I am because I've been on 3mg Klonopin for 8 years. It still does help but you need to stick with your dosage prescribed and never begin to abuse them. Just how it has helped me, not trying to say Benzodiazapines are for everyone. I actually took about 4 years of switching medications before I was put on the Klonopin and at that time I had no clue what Benzodiazepines were. It helped me instantly and it has successfully changed my life. I don't mean other ways aren't possible but I have found a way that works for me :). Feel free to comment, I'm all ears and please don't take this the wrong way.Linuxx écrit: what about trying to use phycotherapy while on antidepressants? because antidepressants do block i beleive the front part of your brain and numb it. i agree benzos deffinitley inhibit you from learning new information but do antidepressants do that to?JIMMY.J REVIEWS écrit: This poison NEEDS TO BE ELIMINATED INDEFINITELY!
