It's weird seeing you here on my own thread Lol. I sure took my time about doing this didn't I? Lol
Thanks for your suggestions. I have been thinking about asking for cymbalta. I really should have asked for some help months ago, but I was so sick with benzo withdrawal I was unable to leave the house, and honestly pretty angry at myself and my doctor regarding the mess I find myself in. Well, I thought I could do this without his help, as you see that didn't work. However, I am surprised the other two doctors I went to see didn't prescribe clonidine or gabapentin. I guess I have
no choice but to go back to my regular pdoc and ask for these medications.
I am still on the fence regarding the kratom. I have seen how well it has worked for you. Did you ever get nauseous when first using it. I must
admit I worry about the silliest things now.
Cmenot, you are right. My doctor obviously has no idea about the risks of taking someone off benzos cold turkey. At times I felt like I was going to seize. It really does have the rebound effect on anxiety. It makes the original anxiety I had before benzos seem like a walk in the park. I really need to find a new pdoc.
I was walking about a mile 3 days a week, but the weather has kept me housebound as of late but today should be better this afternoon.
Thank you both for your support it really means so much to me. I will now go visit your threads.
