“Benzodiazepine withdrawal as told by a woman in the midst of it…” by Monica Cassani

A very moving video. There must be much more awareness raising about the effects of these drugs, particularly amongst doctors and psychiatrist. Here’s what Monica Cassani had to say and she has included essential links:

‘This is a story I know so well and I generally can’t and don’t read stories anymore having read literally 1000s of them now. This video, however, grabbed me and it also brought me to tears. This is my story too. And the story of 100s of thousands of us and yet it’s a story that is still widely denied within psychiatry and medicine in general.

Benzodiazepines are not the only psychiatric drug that create this sort of withdrawal syndrome. Please educate yourself about psych drug withdrawal syndromes here.

For more information on Benzodiazepines in particular see here: BENZO INFO  (includes news, information on safer withdrawal, and personal stories)

We do recover! See stories on the BENZO INFO page and more stories about all recovery from psych drugs and psychiatric diagnosis here: Drug free recovery from depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, etc…

I too am recovering: If I Had Remained Med Compliant…   and  Yoga victory: recovery continues
