A change of direction

As I've stated on more than one occasion already, I find this community to be not only a wealth of knowledge and experience, but a warm and welcoming group of people who share their experiences to the betterment of all.  As a man with not much to offer in the way of pharmacological knowledge or experience, I have only my own trials and travails with benz@ withdrawals and the seizures resulting from them to discuss - I hope to have sooner, rather than later some first-hand suggestions for easing those difficulties while remaining in bounds of the rules of the forum.

With that in mind, I'll update as often as possible with any research I come across or treatments I may be offered, with the intent of perhaps easing the very unpleasant process of withdrawal for others suffering it, whether tapered or forced cold turkey.  My own search for medication to both ease, and hopefully end the seizures (which are now clinically demonstrated not to be caused by epilepsy) and other near unbearable withdrawal symptoms is at an end, not through the graces of any traditional medical provider (although the provider is a board certified and licensed physician) or provider offered here, and certainly not in a manner I'll discuss on the open forum or via PM.

It may, then, take many weeks to garner fifty posts...But the posts I do put up will be long form writing, and no longer anecdotal, but well-researched and I hope useful to others who have or are walking in my shoes.  I seem, quite by accident, to have met an individual with a great deal of experience in treating exactly the symptoms so many of us suffer from, and I hope to learn a great deal from this new acquaintance, and to share what I learn with you.

Once again I thank you all for your support and encouragement as I walked the dark road of uncertainty and occasional despair, and I promise you I will only relate information that both abides by the rules of the forum and proves effective, I would not dream of suggesting treatment methods that do not work for me.

Hello OldBoy.
There certainly is a whole community of people who are here to help, share Information, find Information. With everyone having experiences with different problems who can help by giving their own accounts of what worked and what did not work for them. I find that these communities are great for giving decent information. The days of me randomly Googling online are no more.
Glad to hear that you have found some solution to help with seizure issues/withdrawal, anything unbearable I sympathize with. Not a nice place to be.
I am not sure what happened to you regarding your posts, this is the first of yours I have seen, (been offsite for a while), but patients with posting is best for everyone, keeps a secure forum, as well as reduced headaches for Admin. I shot myself in the foot with a hasty post, learned from it, was forgiven and moved on.

I hope you find all the Info you need here my friend.
