I talked to this guy who generously gave me his time on the phone. He didn't believe people in benzo withdrawal reacted to chinese herbs and felt it was their anxiety causing the reactions. I disagree but I kept my mouth shut about this. For some they may not have hypersensitization especially if there is no kindling or cold turkey/fast taper/reinstatement in the picture.
I can't seem to find someone locally who deals with iatrogenic injury and I liked that he writes about this and other things in a very detailed way.
Anyone who lives in his area, I would check him out in a heartbeat.
Now, it was an acupuncturist who PRESCRIBED me this drug to begin with (he was also a medical doctor) so I am not keen at all at going to acupuncture at the moment. In fact, I read somewhere that you need to be careful with the points used due to detox type of issues. Basically, someone really needs to know what they are doing and be very skilled at the level of sensitivity here.
I just thought I would share this with others, see what you think.
