Are you searching info on tapering off Alprazolam? Looking for a Alprazolam withdrawal program that really works?
Here are just a few of the many Alprazolam withdrawal success stories from people who have used Point of Return's Alprazolam withdrawal program to taper off Alprazolam.
I just wanted to let you know that I'm doing well - thanks to your program. I don't think I could have ever done it alone. I'm more than 2 weeks tapered off of all meds. The supplements from the Point of Return program were so helpful that I needed less and less of the meds faster than I thought possible. I'm still doing a little withdrawal, but it's a whole new world. I'm so surprised at how much easier it is to sleep and how much more control I have over myself. All the things I took the meds for - I didn't get until I was off of them - how ironic. I'm working with a great nutritionalist and your program really gave me a starting point in a healthy recovery. Please thank everyone in the office for me. I am deeply grateful to you all.
This is an excellent program and I recommend it all the time. Thank You.
Diane C. (Indiana) - Alprazolam Withdrawal Success Story
In the summer of 2010, I was diagnosed with stress disorder due to my job. My doctor prescribed an anti-depressant telling me that was how this disorder was treated. The anti-depressant caused me to have anxiety, headaches, and a major case of insomnia. I went to two other doctors seeking help. One doctor put me on Ambien, and the other doctor put me on Alprazolam. I took each of these drugs each night, and at first I slept very well.
After being on these pills for only a couple of months I noticed my sleep had become bad again, and I was lucky if I got 3 to 4 hours, instead of the 7 to 8 I got at first. It appeared I had reached what is referred to as “Tolerance” to both Ambien and Alprazolam, and was having “Rebound” effects and the “Withdrawal” symptoms started to affect me greatly, and I was miserable. One night as my Brother and I prayed, we were led to look up these drugs on the internet so we could better understand what was happening to me. We were absolutely shocked to see what all of the horrible “Side Effects” of these drugs were, and I had a lot of them. My doctors had assured me these drugs were ok to use and I would not become addicted to them.
Later, my doctors even told me I could just stop taking these drugs “Cold Turkey” without any problems. Thankfully I did not do this, but I did at first cut back to half of both drugs within less than one week. This was a mistake, as the “Withdrawal Symptoms” became almost unbearable. I looked on the internet for help, and that’s when I found the website for Point of Return. I enrolled in their program and started the supplements right away.
Alesandra Rain at Point of Return contacted me, and helped me to start my “Tapering” process once I stabilized from my previous cuts. She helped guide me through a very rough time of weaning myself off of 2 very addictive and very powerful drugs at the same time. I finished the program in approximately 7 weeks, which is considered pretty fast. I felt I had to go fast due to the “Tolerance” issues and the already present “Withdrawal” symptoms.
Between my faith in God and the help of Alesandra at Point of Return, I have been Ambien and Alprazolam free since December 30th of 2010.
I am continuing to improve daily, and am confident I will be back to 100% soon.
Jeff F. (Arizona) - Alprazolam Withdrawal Success Story
Thirty years ago may have been the beginning of a down-hill spiral for me when I was put on antidepressants for a persistent nerve pain in my arms and hands. Amazingly they did stop the pain and because of my trust in our medical Dr./friend I thought I'd need this drug for rest of my life to correct the diagnosed chemical imbalance.
While on the Amipramine I had mood swings, dry mouth and a nightly three hour ritual of twitching and jerking. It was the end of the blissful deep sleep I had once known. Relocating to another state meant changing to another doctor and then another and another as I became discouraged with their inability to make me feel better. The first and only effort ever made with each new doctor was to change my antidepressant. I even had the degrading experience of a homeopathic Dr. tell me there wasn't anything more they could to for me. "O.K. what is wrong with me? I don't feel well. Am I going to wither up and die for no reason at all? Oh, yes, I have Fibromyalgia. It's causing the tiredness, muscle pain, acid reflux and sleep disorder.
Oh, thank goodness. My joins are wearing out. Now there is a real reason for the pain. The five joint replacements have been helpful but the diseased spine is still hard to deal with. The spinal injections haven't helped so I really don't know what to do next. Suffer and live with it I suppose. At this rate I may not want to see 70.
Five children and their spouses, fourteen grand children all live a thousand miles away and seldom come to visit. They are too busy with their own lives so I am doomed to die lonely in some facility because my husband won't be able to care for me as my mental and physical health diminish. They will keep me calm and quiet for a few years until I slip away."
GOD BLESS MY DAUGHTER, BARBIE, who so tenderly and cautiously questioned me about my antidepressants. "Mom, I have a friend who was really sick and taking several drugs but now she is off of them and she has a whole new life." "But I still have the pain and the Dr. said I have a chemical imbalance.
I can't hardly ride in the car because the vibrations hurts me so bad. Dad does all of the housework and shopping." "Would you mind if my friend e-mailed or called you? "No, I don't' mind. I can listen or not listen."
That was the beginning of my journey to healing with POINT OF RETURN and my, now dear and precious, friend Alesandra. It has been one year this month of September since I began the program and today I am free of drugs. Free from Alprazolam which was causing me more Anxiety, Tramadol that caused more pain, Mirtazapine and Effexor. Even my stomach is healing and I have stopped the purple pill.
It hasn't been a bed or roses. It was hardest on my dear husband of 48 years. He is a saint you know. We are acting silly again just as we did years ago and we are still very much in love at the age of 66 and 70.
We hope to shorten the miles between us and our family by traveling more frequently. We have been blessed with a Great Granddaughter and we have yet to see and spoil her just a little. We just returned from Arizona where we reunited with two friends we had not seen or heard from in thirty years.
My grandchildren thought it was amazing to see photos of me (grandma) on a recent camping trip, standing up to the waist in a stream of water and fly fishing for trout. I'm a tough cookie sometimes and stubborn (they say) but I didn't know what a fighter I was until now that I look back on this past year and
realize that I never once thought about quitting the program.
Could it have something to do with Alesandra Rain, the program itself, the prayers I didn't know about. Yes, all of the above and more. I am dead set against the misuse of drugs and have always made a strong and lasting impression upon our children pertaining to them. For me to think that I was addicted to prescriptions drugs never entered my mind and would have horrified me.
Pain is no stranger to me so I am more compassionate to those who suffer than I use to be. I want to say clearly that I don't believe a laboratory cocktail of chemicals, compressed into a tiny pill, are natural to the human body and they are definitely not the answer to a healthy mind and body.
