Addiction Help for Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms
Janice Dickinson, the star and executive producer of the hit TV show, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, had a panic attack on live TV while she was withdrawing from benzodiazepines.
I’m not sure why Janice chose to make her addiction and withdrawal public – although she tends to discuss just about every intimate detail of her life publicly – but I would hope it does what this type of show should do: discourage people from taking drugs.
Panic attacks are just one of the many symptoms you can experience trying to get off prescription drugs. Withdrawal can be a very uncomfortable experience – so much so that it’s a major reason why people just give up and keep taking the drugs.
In addition to panic attacks, you can also expect to suffer from cold shakes, vomiting, diarrhea, and bone pain, and even seizures.
If you or someone you know is using benzodiazepines and is having trouble getting off them, it’s best to get some professional addiction help. With a good treatment program, you can avoid much of the pain of withdrawal.
