    I have found her to be informative and supportive on many levels.Dr. Duke has reached out by phone, and after my giving her permission, she has spoken to my family and when I wasn't able to make decisions on my own she knew she could speak to them on my behalf. I have been pleased to have her on my side.

    Action Plan
    Dr. Duke doctor knows very little about the drugs she prescribes or about withdrawal from psychotropic drugs. Benzodiazepines are indicated for short-term relief only- 2 to 4 weeks (see below), yet she prescribes to people for decades on end, despite the existence of a plethora of medical documentation since the 1960's warning of the dangers. This class of drugs works by rewiring the brain/central nervous system and withdrawal can last months and years, not to mention the fact that many taking a prescribed dose develop all manner of health problems. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines can be so unbearable and unrelenting that many never able to get off them, many kill themselves. It is so intolerable. I know. I am nearly 4 years off this drug and still recovering. If doctors would listen to their patients and do their own research, countless lives would be saved and much suffering would be avoided. “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 Dr. Banno doctor knows nothing about the drugs he prescribes nor about what he and the pharmaceutical companies blithely call "discontinuation syndrome", otherwise known as withdrawal. Benzodiazepines are indicated for short-term relief only- 2 to 4 weeks (see below), yet he prescribed these for decades, despite the existence of a plethora of medical documentation since the 1960's warning of the dangers. He denied there was any problem with these drugs despite documentation presented to him. He claimed he had never seen it before.

    Dr Duke was superb. Sensitive, knowledgeable, compassionate. In an age of electronic connectedness, the capability of the web in bridging between those isolated by physical or cognitive disability remains shockingly underutilized. I'd be interested in working with someone to identify the "low hanging fruit" and implementing some possibilities.
