Method to get benzos prescribed
#21
I have read how many people say they tell their doctor that they have been ordering things online. I am talking bout narcotics only. If you were 60 or older and told your doctor that you were ordering blood pressure meds from Canada and sending them the prescription , even though I do not know the validity of that , I just do not think it is a good idea to tell a doctor or anyone really that you are engaging in illegal activity. the way things seem to be done here is that most people seem vague when talking about such thing until I believe you get on the private forums. I am not that far yet myself but hope to be soon. I guess what i am trying to say when you talk to your doctor about narcotics less is more. The DEA is very tough on them and no one wants to risk their livelihood after going to school for 10 tears to help someone that is admitting to breaking the law. That is just my opinion and what has worked for me. Someone might have better results. I have known a few older doctors and they hardly prescribe narcotics at all. the age of the "Valley of the Dolls" is over. I do not mean to make anyone made just wanting to share.

thanks for reading

Never exaggerate symptoms. It makes it harder for people with real problems to get the help they need. But stand your ground. Don't get rude with a doctor but keep firm with what you believe that works. If not ask them to kindly send you to someone that can treat your condition more effectively. They are obligated to do so. They will make you feel like scum while doing it. But don't pay them no mind. You are your own advocate. Doctors are playing with fire these days and sadly the patients are the ones getting burned.

Hello Solarpunch, Glad to see you in the forums. You did make a very good point that only you know your body. You are also correct that you are you only advocate! A lot of people hold doctors in such high regard that they are intimidated by them.  I indeed do feel anxiety when I go to the doctor because I am getting the meds I need now, but it is very worrisome that they can be taken away at any time even if you do nothing wrong. Sadly that is the world we live in now. But you did make a very good point  of being your own advocate. i will certainty keep that in mind next time i go.

Thanks for post !

Regards Eddie

A very common example is the anxiety problem. They will put you first on SSRIs and if you have luck, get some benzos to this, but mostly not. They say you have to tolerate the first weeks when you feel horrible. You can try to switch several SSRIs and say you cant take them because they make you sick, which is in 90% true. Maybe then you will get some more chances. And the chance is always better at your GP than with specialists. And avoid young doctors, they will never get you a benzo.

Definitely agree it is easier to get them from GP. Specialists will almost always start with ssri and then you play the waiting/experimenting on your brain game with diff meds. As far as doc age I've had better luck with younger (30-50) then older, ... Just my experience tho.

I'm actually prescribed some benzos! I have daily tension headaches with easy triggers and then I had crippling migraines for a few days so I went to a neurologist. I let the doctor know that I've been crazy busy and let the doctor diagnosis me. The doctor said my headaches are due to stress and anxiety and gave me two options: benzos or anti depressants. I asked for both haha.

My physicians assistant I see is trying to cut my benz back. After 7 or 8 years of taking them there playing games again. Said that I cant take both benz and pk's at the same time. Said it can put me in danger. I replied back saying "so you've been putting me in danger for all these years"? He had no good reply back to to that question. Said taking them together can cause respiratory depressions which I am well aware of but that is only at high doses of both medications. I told him I don't take them together since I only take my benz at night time. So he started tapering them. Now I need to go into make another appointment that costs me money and explain that he needs to read my chart from 7-8 years ago as to why I am on benz in the first place. The benefit outweighs the risks IMHO. He was not in my medical life when I was given them and it was a year long process when deciding by a specialist and my primary doctor at the time that benz therapy was an appropriate course of action. I refuse to take anti depressants. But seems like every now and then they like to wanna fill me some for my anxiety/panic disorder. I have to remind them that I will not take them and life goes on. Something tells me this time is going to be more difficult. Sad .. I don't need this stress in my life and the PA is making things much worse now for me and causing unneeded anxiety by being a jerk to his patient. Conclusion to all of this : I hate PA's and think doctors should be the only ones allowed to prescribe.

tell them your a drug addict and you wanna get high and you have no real issues, "mentally" besides the fact that your a drug addict. its works great

I almost died laughing. You think we speak this way here? We do not.

These are our rules: http://ioplist.org/showthread.php?tid=1

We are the chronically ill. Chronically anxious. We do not wave a banner of addiction and be proud.

I don't think you belong here. Oh, first post is to be in welcome thread, Mr. Hysterical.
