I am trying to wean off Diazepam 5mg/daily x3 prn and Alprazolam 2-3 mg nightly prn.I ve been on these for 5 yrs, as you will see in bio. I have PTSD/Panic Disrder/Anxiety. My psych seems upset with my borderline Agoraphobia and increasing phone appointments as well as my inability to pay beyond the Medicare rate. He has not contacted me for 2 wks despite our agreement that I must be weaned & my messages left requesting assist. Can you advise?

Hello friend,
Thank you for posting your query through Healthcare magic.
I can understand your condition and your concerns.
I can help you through Homoeopathic treatment not only to wean off the harmful and habit forming chemical drugs but also to cure your psychic conditions of PTSD.
First of all understand what has happened with you just prior to the beginning of 5 years during which you were psychically ill.
You have not written anything about the actual TRAUMA you had met with. Let it be anything because I need not know about it at this point to explain to you my thoughts. But for treatment I need to know about it later.
If you throw a stone to different objects like a wooden board, a metal sheet, a cement floor or to a thin glass panel, the reaction will be different. The difference in the reaction is dependant on the nature of the objects to which the stone is thrown and the stone is less important in the production of those reactions.
Similarly in your case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, your mental and physical make ups of your constitution is more important to cure you than the particular stress or shocking psychological conflict you had. Because the same event you took as a shock may not be a shock for another indiviual with another genetic make up.
In Homoeopathy, the constitutional reaction to the shock is more important because that is based on your genetics. Homoeopathy is primarily a genetic and constitutional method of treatment.
In Homoeopathy there are about 40 remedies intended for ailments from mental shock like Arnica, Ignatia, Opium etc. The most suitable remedy for your genetics and constitution can be decided by an expert Homoeopath.
Therefore you can very confidently approach an expert Homoeopathic Physician to get your disease cured and to strengthen you constitutionally and in the genetic level to become resistant to the same or similar stresses in future.
I can also help to cure YOU first and then to taper the doses of Diazepam and Alprazolam to zero dose. For that you can approach me through the premium follow up question of Healthcare magic.
With Best Wishes for getting cured through Homoeopathy,
Dr C. J. Varghese,
