WHat medication is recommended for Benzodiazepine withdrawal treatment? Thank you for your reply. MY e- mail address is YYYY@YYYY . I am in Japan. The worthless doctor let my wife take Benzodiazepine (.25 mg) for 6 months. in few months she started developing tooth and gum pains, dry throat. Thinking it is a dental problem she kept going to dentist, there was obviously no problem with her teeth. Then she started looking in the internet and realized that she is having Benzodiazepine side effect. Panicked she stopped Benzodiazepine abruptly and how very depressed with withdrawal syndrome ( often want to commit suicide). She is having some times irritation in mouth, some times powdery mouth, gum and teeth pain etc. I am planning to get some placebo from my friend doctor ( He once treated her and my wife has just blind faith on my friend as a doctor) but he is in India and sending medicine from India. Your advice would be greatly help me. Thanks.

Hello, I have JRA and have had since age 4. I, thus far, have had a TRH replacement, TRK replacement and TLK replacement. I am currently on Hydrocodone 10 for pain (RA is present in both ankles, both wrists, elbow, showing signs in shoulders as well as muscle pain beginning in the neck area and lower back). I also take Xanax 1.0mg for anxieties. My question is, I researched Hydroxyzine that is used for allergies, itching and anxieties. I want to know if this medication would have major side effects with the Hydrocodone and is Hydroxyzine considered a Benzo drug. I m trying to stop the Xanax and find something that would work as well as the Xanax. I m an empath and my anxiety levels are just plain crazy! My next doc appointment isn t until the 8th and I wanted to present this to her as an option. Thank you for your help!

I have had severe panic disorder with agoraphobia for as long as I can remember. The agoraphobia has fluctuated over the years but I am now digging out of a huge hole, so to say. So I take an ssri, clonidine, and klonopin and things are going okay. I have therapy weekly and cognitive behavioral therapy. I know from experience and from having been a medical student myself (had to quit after third year because of the agoraphobia) that desensitization is the only way to help the problem. But the klonopin only helps so much because of it s long half life. Would a fast acting benzodiazepine (like alprazolam), be appropriate for back up for when I put myself in difficult and anxiety inducing situations? My psychiatrist is pretty understand in and gives leeway since I am a very compliant patient and not drug-seeking.
