    Action Plan
    I was sent to and misdiagnosed with Depression and Anxiety by Dr. Marcus after abruptly stopping Ativan prescribed by a family doctor. He did not recognize symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal, prescribing various antidepressants, none of which helped. He eventually prescribed clonazepam 0.5mg, "1 or 2 at bedtime and as needed", for the next 20 years- a class of drugs that is indicated for use no longer than two to four weeks (see links below) I was never warned of the danger of taking benzodiazepines. I was never told that benzodiazepines rewire the brain. I was never told they were addictive. I was never told withdrawal could last months or years. Every time I tried to stop them I was told the symptoms I had meant I needed to stay on them. I am 46 months off this drug, following a horrific 15 month taper and I am still recovering from the damage done to my brain and central nervous system. My life has been very nearly destroyed. I still am unable to work. I can barely carry out the daily tasks of living. When I discovered the truth about this class of drugs, he told me I was wrong, despite presenting him with medical documentation. He then turned his back on me and stopped helping me. I learned to taper the drug from the internet and have been supported throughout this horrendous ordeal by no medical professional. Dr. Marcus is arrogant, ignorant and in denial. He does not do his own independent research, nor does his listen to his patients. My hope is that all doctors would listen to their patients and familiarize themselves with the information below. The dangers of benzodiazepines have been well-documented over the last 35+ years. Why is this still going on? This is the biggest drug dependency problem in the world and it grows by the day. “The story of benzodiazepines has been described as a national scandal. The impact is too big for governments, regulatory authorities and the pharmaceutical industry to address head on, so the scandal has been swept under the carpet. Benzos are responsible for more pain, unhappiness and damage than anything else in our society.” Phil Woolas, MP, House of Commons, UK Royal College of Psychiatrists UK: http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/healthadvice/treatmentswellbeing/benzodiazepines.aspx Committee on Safety of Medicines UK: http://benzo.org.uk/commit.htm Medical documentation: http://benzo.org.uk/docs.htm More Medical documentation: http://www.benzo.org.uk/amisc/rpeart.pdf Comprehensive information on how to withdraw: http://benzo.org.uk/manual/index.htm Comprehensive website: www.benzo.org.uk
