Benzos for POIS (Xanax, klonopin...)
« on: October 09, 2019, 10:53:53 AM »
Has anyone tried to take a benzodiazepine like xanax before or days after O to reduce symptoms? Im thinking about trying it I know its highly addictive but if it helps the anxiety symptoms it might be worth to take once every 2-3 weeks.

I can confirm you benzo helps some Poisers. As you said, its highly addictive.

b_jim, I know you have been studying many, many POIS cases since the forum beginning, in 2007. Last count I saw was that you studied 440 POIS cases? Is it higher now?

10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

I think I 've stopped to count Pois sufferers when we create the poiscenter forum. Because I didn't want to count several times the same cases. And now we made a nice communication job : all Poisers will find our forum...
Now, if the question is : how many Poisers in the world ?
I would say 1500 to 2000.
But it's a pure speculation.

Excellent! Thank you for estimating! I have always been curious as to the number of possible POISers in the world.

Benzo's work but they split your life expectancy in half and are very addicting.
You still get alot of damage due to immune reaction

Benzo's are the only thing that works against the severe nerve pain and brainfog

Plants and homeopathy (very light sedative) kill me !
They cause me breathing depression. I tought I will die. Impossible to sleep, impossible to breath. I spent the worst days of my life. Now I feel normal. I will never take any sedative anymore.
And alcool cut my legs.
Dispite taurine blocks my Pois ! Crazy ! I need to study all of this and go to a neurologist.

Now I'm conviced of this : GABA IS THE KEY.

GABA certainly helps but I'm not sure if it's a cure or just treating symptoms. Inflammatory cytokines on the brain can cause anxiety and GABA can reduce that anxiety.

Jim GABA agonists can trigger asthma in some people. For some reason increasing GABA in the lungs of some patients with allergic disorders result in local full/partial  mast cell degranulation. Its not known why this is the case
