I have been on 4 a day 1mg lorazepam reducing 1mg a month. I agreed with my pharmacist practitioner this as a plan. Unfortunately a new practitioner without any consultation with me just wrote out a prescription for 3 a day for a month then he proposes to drop to 2 a month and then 1 a month with no consultation with me. He spoke to me over the phone as I pointed out that is not what I had agreed. He would not back down. He has only been at the practice one week and the other doctors have always signed my previous prescriptions. It is a Bank Holiday and my anxiety is through the roof and cannot just drop one a day. Do not know who to turn to. To make it worse I have a thyroid problem and losing my hair. I thought doctors were there to help.I phoned the surgery and the receptionist said I could only see a doctor in two weeks. I am barely coping and now feel suicidal. Can anyone help or know who could help me.
