No worries, mate. I didn't take your post personally, and I know you weren't talking about people like me. I was just jumping in to have fun and chat. In my state, they don't seem to hand out opiods or benzodiazepines. They're very selective who they prescribe them to, and they almost always require you to see a specialist for evaluation and prescriptions. Despite having PTSD and panic attacks, I'm not on a benzodiazepine currently. My doctors said that I could only be prescribed either the opioids or benzodiazepines, not both. Since my anxiety is under better control nowadays and my pain is the biggest contributor to my anxiety, I chose the opioids. It's a bit annoying to me because I inherited an extremely high tolerance to both of those. Percocet is the WEAKEST opioid that actually works for me. Vicodin, morphine, etc. do next to nothing for me. The morphine helps a little bit, but I metabolize it in 20 to 40 minutes. That's not much relief! For anxiety x@nax is the only one that works for me, and even then, I have to have at least 1 mg for any effect. When I have a bad panic attack, I need 2 mg. The rest will make me a tad bit sleepy at most, with the exception of klonopin. For some reason, if I take just 1 klonopin, I will crave it for several days afterward, despite it doing nothing for my anxiety. Needless to say, I called my psychiatrist and did NOT take it again!
