It just crossed my mind that one very effective treatment for anxiety are the benzodiazepine tranquillisers like Valium and Ativan. I know they are highly addictive but I also know they have relieved my chronuc anxiety and depression in the past within a half hour of taking. So it crossed my mind whether, if I had a choice, whether I would prefer to be taking them or continue struggling with the symptoms? At this moment in time I would prefer to be taking them, but the fact is that we no longer have a choice. Virtually all GP's refuse to prescribe them. There is even a notice up in my surgery that specifically says that their policy is not to prescribe them. What are people's thoughts on this?
