ROFL?Hmmmnnn... In a perfect world maybe. And where and when did ADHD Meds. form a part of the conversation anyway? Lol!
I THINK I understand what you're trying to say (emphasis on the word "THINK")! Lol!ROFL?
Did you already anything read of the specialist ADHS-literature? If you are tested positiv, the now have to find together the correct medication for you - and this lasts weeks...For me it was quite a procedure to go there minimum oncee a week - but now I'm happy and satisfied with my medication now.
you already need a prescription to the Psychotherapeut from the Psychiatrist.
Ahaaaaaaaaaa!!!! If you have one of the very cool GPs then I would also not go to anybody else
Yip. He's been my GP for over 40 years now. We've been through measles, chickenpox, depression, and God knows what else together (that sounds strange doesn't it! Lol!). And best of all: he CARES i.e. one of the few that got into the profession for the right reasons i.e. caring for people as opposed to the big paycheck at the end of it all.^^ yip you got to love S.A. for that reason, exactly why i stick with my GP too
I had one of those once... when I moved I lost him though. It seems difficult to find a doctor who actually cares and doesn't just give you 15 minutes of half-assed thought and then forgets all about you.Hello.

It doesn’t sound dumb at all. As a coke user for many years (in a previous lifetime that is! Lol!) I used to down vats of booze to ease the paranoia and deal with the comedown. Fortunately for me: I don’t like booze (but love being pissed) and back then I did not know what a benzodiazepine was. So I’m the lucky one I guess. Some years later I did start using (prescribed) Alprozalam and, well, things got bad at one stage. So I know what you mean and understand what you are saying. I’ve heard (and read at the time) that benzodiazepine withdrawal is as bad, if not worse but just as life threatening, as Heroin and alcohol withdrawal. I wouldn’t know having not had the “pleasure”. But I do know that benzodiazepine withdrawal can be hell in and of itself.as dumb as this sounds i got hooked on bars and kpins mainly because almost all the coke in my town was cut with some RC that gave me bad heart palpitations id have to lie down and control my breathing. scary. Of course im a dumbass and didnt want to stop using cocaine so i found taking a benzo stopped the palpitations. I also have moderare anxiety and became comofrtable with the total relief of anxiety from benzos and then discovered how benzo addiction for me is worst out of all the rest, including heroin amphetamine and alcohol. Entering benzo withdrawal with no access to benzos all night was the scariest feeling for me. Worse than heroin/fet. It also brought me into a darkness id never believe i could be in, ruined an amazing relationship one that i felt like luckiest guy ever, it kills me that it was my actions that ruined something so valuable. I guess that served as a lesson for me
And I agree (which was kinda the reason I started the thread in the first place). I've only ever used Alprozalam (none of the others) and all I got/get from it is sedation and muscle relaxation and a decent night's sleep (depending of course on how many I felt like taking on any particular day). Other than that the main benefit for me is to take my mind off of my troubles (which really is self defeating at best I realize). Certainly not a high or something I'd go riding around looking for at 03h00 in the morning type of thing from a dealer that's for sure. Only high I experienced (which I may have described earlier) was a real nice bump with Alprozalam and the tiniest bit of Fentanyl. Now that was nice. But in hindsight it was the Fentanyl and nothing to do with the Alprozalam I don't think. Also guess I was being a bit unfair in my original post at the beginning of the thread i.e. not comparing apples with apples. To me a high is a Coke high. So you really cannot compare the two. Maybe some people just like being sedated all of the time (or, as I've said, maybe I'm just doing something wrong) (although this time around I'm genuinely using them for issues as opposed to actually TRYING to abuse them). Still. It sure does seem to be popular.From personal experience... Benzodiazepines have never been a drug that gave me some pleasant recreational effect. Never got a high, only anxiety reduction, sedation and muscle relaxation. Nothing even close to amphetamine or opioid high. That is the reason I never abused them after few tries/experiments. And even when it comes to benzos alprazolam is not on the top of my list. I much more prefer diazepam and bromazepam. Heck, even clonazepam or midazolam give me more of the effects that I find enjoyable. So I don't know why is alprazolam so highly valued. Think it is a, when we put aside individual outliers and their response to particular substance, more of a marketing thing. My 2 cents with a sprinkle of a whole lot of experience.
Benzo withdrawal and alcohol withdrawal are on the same levbel in terms of being life-threatening, but benzo withdrawal lasts many times longer than alcohol withdrawal. The reason they are life-threatening is that it can cause seizures. Opiate/heroin withdrawal is absolutely awful, but not life-threatening.benzodiazepine withdrawal is as bad, if not worse but just as life threatening, as Heroin and alcohol withdrawal.
