  1. Recognizing the problem and getting the word out is too late for those of us who followed our doctors prescription exactly for years until the medication stopped working and we have all the symptoms that Dr. Huff mentions and they have not abated for years. What happens to people like us, who have not slept for over 8 years???

  2. All the recognition and commiserating has done nothing – the anonymity, the divides within families, big pharma and medicines deliberate ongoing denial “business strategy” all of this is maiming and killing dare I say millions globally over the last 3/4 decades. There are no faces and names to this epidemic – they are discounting this epidemic as crazy drug addict attention seeking “victims”.

    We need to post names phone numbers picures of victims. Family members need to believe

    Doctors the ethical ones need to start caring for patients and fighting for what’s right . PLEASE ATEMPT TO STOP THE CARNAGE OF LIVES

    WE MUST UNITE OR THER WILL BE MILLONS MORE VICTIMS TO COME.

    WE NEED FAMILY MEMEBERS OF SUFFERERS WHO ARENT ILL TO STAND UP ACROSS ALL RACES AND SOCIAL DVIDING LINES AND UNITE FOR JUSTICE FOR VICTIMS. STOP SUFFERING IN SILENCE – DOCTORS QUIT BEING COMPLICITOUS! FIRST DO NO HARM – YOU CAN HELP UNDO THE HARM PERPETRATED LARGELY BY THE DRUG COMPANIES

    1. I am two years benzo free. After trying to taper with a medical professional (?) who decreased and then increased my dose I stopped cold turkey. I was prescribed Xanax for 32 years. I’ve been having a difficult time lately, which is disheartening because I have made good progress. Does this happen frequently?

  3. Dr. Huff,
    How are you doing now? I am so scared because I believed my doctors for years. They started me on Xanax in 1997. Then in 2013, they cold turkey cut my Xanax and started me on 4mg Klonopin. Plus I have been tried out on about 25 different antidepressants and a few antipsychotics. They never helped. I decided around March of 2017 to cut my Klonopin from 4mg to 3mg, my lexapro from 20mg to 10mg, and Vistaril from 75mg to 50mg. Now, a year later I’m just severely depressed-suicidal thoughts at times, extreme fatigue and exhaustion. It’s difficult to do anything. I’m now tapering at a slower rate but cannot find a doctor who will help. I hear these horror stories and I am scared. I need to be able to function. My son has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and attempted suicide and other tragic events. My family has fallen apart between me and my son. My other three children have little to do with us. My oldest daughter is a nurse and says I’m a drug addict and is very cruel to me. My heart is broken in millions of pieces. I’m afraid of getting panic attacks again. That is why they started me on Xanax. I’m afraid I will not make it. Did you get off? Are you well?

    1. Any response to Martha’s post from 4/9? Martha are you ok? I’m terrified as well. Similar story. Suicidal.

  4. I can certainly understand what she is going through, I myself went through hell and back getting off benzodiazepines and opioids mixed together at the same time for 43+ years, my Dr said I wouldn’t have any problems yeah right, I would be very interested in telling my story because frankly from what I’ve been told mixing that combo along with other controlled drug’s on top of what I was taking I’m lucky to be alive, if you want to hear more please hit me up thanks and be well you can do it.
