I was talking to an old MDds buddy who was one of the MdDS forum leaders for many years, she tried klonopin as nothing else had helped, it was kinda a last resort med for her.
She became a patient of Dr Hain, she said he spoke about benzos not being a good choice for MdDs if taken directly after MdDs had started, as he felt it could stop the normal adaption and should only be used by long timers who had run out of alternatives, he also said that keeping the dose at as low as possible I think it was 0.2mg or at least under 0.5mg that it would be safe and withdrawal from it shouldn’t be a problem, My buddy said she decided to go off it to allow the natural process of re-adaption.
I was wondering if you think benzo's could permanently change the brains chemistry for readaption due to the plasticity of the brain, not only in MDds but for anyone using a benzo with brain issues?
By the way , I'm so sorry you are suffering so with this monster!
I do believe the more we force ourselves to move and get out and about helps re-adaption, There was a surprising story about a lady who had MDds she was an athlete running marathons "very fit"
Her friend a another marathon runner, took her on a midnight run over bumpy ground over hill and dale you might say,
He took a torch with him as it was pitch black desert.
Before they started the run he said I want you to look at where I shine the light and only watch the light and think about nothing else, he moved the light on the ground from side to side, by the time they got to the end of the hours run, she had no more MDds.
None of us could believe what we were hearing, obviously this helped something in the brain to revert back to normal.
Sounds farfetched, but it is actually a true story.
