  • Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.

  • motoboy on Jan, 29, 2015:

    I've recently stopped taking ibuprofen after many years of taking it daily. I take between 800 to 1500 mg a day, mostly before bed to sleep. I have had a lot of sport injuries do it was for joint pain. It's been about a week since taking any and I'm getting really bad headaches. Can't seem to find this as a withdrawal issue... any one else experience this? Thanks!
