Benzo Anti-Depressant Withdrawal

BENZO WITHDRAWAL, WITHDRAWAL FROM ANTI-DEPRESSANTS OR ANTI-PSYCHOTICS

You probably:

  • Have been taking benzos, anti-depressants or anti-psychotics for some time, and they are now adversely affecting your quality of life;
  • Are aware that one of the biggest risks of withdrawal is the risk of seizure and have decided that you want to withdraw in an inpatient facility;
  • Tried to get off or cut down on the drug and found that your anxiety increased;
  • Tried to get off or cut down on the drug and found that you are now having trouble sleeping;
  • Are always feeling tired and have very low energy;
  • Have gained weight or lost weight;
  • Are finding yourself feeling sad or even depressed;
  • Are feeling anxious in spite of the drug;
  • Are not thinking as clearly;
  • Are having muscle aches or fibromyalgia or other symptoms;
  • Have determined that you have to get off the drug because it is not working;
  • Are someone that wants not to just withdraw from the drug, but also to find if there is a real physiological problem causing your symptoms in addition to the side effects of the drug.

Many of you know what would happen if you were driving down the road and heard a sound from your car engine but, instead of stopping to find out and handle the source of the problem, you just turned the radio volume up so that you no longer heard it. Before long you would be sitting beside the road waiting for a tow truck.

Are you a victim of Radio Medicine?

“Radio Medicine” is when a doctor listens to your symptoms, doesn’t find the real cause, but instead gives you a drug that “turns the radio up” and blocks the symptoms. Not only does the underlying problem remain untreated, but it likely gets worse. The drug may be a benzodiazepine like Xanax, Ativan, or Valium. It may be an antipsychotic like Seroquel, Abilify or Zyprexa. It may be an antidepressant like Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Cymbalta or Lexapro. Or it may be one of a host of other drugs that cause unpleasant or even dangerous side effects.

THE NOVUS MEDICAL DETOX CENTER SOLUTIONS

Because we know that each person’s situation is different, we have developed three different programs to help someone safely withdraw from an unneeded and dangerous psychoactive drug and to embark on a mission to discover if there is an underlying physiological condition.

WITHDRAWAL PROGRAM ONE

You will:

  • Complete a Novus Medical Detox Center medical information form;
  • If accepted, come to Novus Medical Detox Center in Florida and safely and more comfortably withdraw from the psychoactive drug;
  • During the withdrawal process, Novus Medical Detox Center will help you find a doctor in your area who will help you take the next step to diagnose and treat any underlying physiological problems;
  • Return home educated about how to remain hydrated, armed with our injectable vitamin and amino acid kit, and more knowledgeable about the physiological conditions that may be creating any symptoms you may still have after withdrawing from the psychoactive drug.

WITHDRAWAL PROGRAM TWO

You will:

  • Complete a Novus Medical Detox Center medical information form;
  • If accepted, come to Novus Medical Detox Center and safely and more comfortably withdraw from the psychoactive drug;
  • During the withdrawal process, you will be taken to Dr. Caroline Van Sant-Crowle’s office. Dr. Crowle is not only one of Novus’ doctors, but is also a recognized specialist in alternative medicine and routinely works with patients to find and treat the actual cause of their problems. Dr. Crowle is one of the doctors recommended in Suzanne Somers’ bestselling new book Breakthrough. Dr. Crowle will meet with you, do a thorough history and order lab tests to help you take the next step to diagnose and treat any underlying physiological problems;
  • Return home educated about how to remain hydrated, armed with our injectable vitamin and amino acid kit, and more knowledgeable about the physiological conditions that may be creating any symptoms you may still have after withdrawing from the psychoactive drug;
  • When the test results ordered by Dr. Crowle are received, then a telephone consultation will be arranged with Dr. Crowle and you will take the next step on your program to start handling any underlying physiological problems.

WITHDRAWAL PROGRAM THREE

You will:

  • Complete a Novus Medical Detox Center medical information form;
  • If accepted, come to Novus Medical Detox Center and safely and more comfortably withdraw from the psychoactive drug;
  • During the second day you will be taken to an appointment at Dr. Caroline Van-Sant Crowle’s office
  • You will then return to Novus Medical Detox Center and continue your detox program.
  • When you complete your withdrawal at Novus, you will pick up your rental car and go to a hotel that you have selected.
  • The next step will be a series of appointments with Dr. Brent Agin. In addition to being the Novus Medical Director, Dr. Agin has written two books on healthy living and anti-aging and is recognized as an expert in the field. At these appointments you:
  • Will be interviewed about your lifestyle, your exercise regimen and your diet;
  • Will receive an exercise program and be set up with an appointment with a personal trainer who will work with you while you are in the Clearwater area.
  • Once Dr. Crowle has completed her diagnosis, you will be given a nutritional dietary plan.
  • If you need help with weight loss, Dr. Agin can design a program for this.
  • At this visit, you will also be given an IV, the same type that you were receiving at Novus. You will return to Dr. Agin’s office for IV’s as prescribed by Dr. Agin.
  • If you have an issue with pain, feel that your body is not in proper alignment or is diagnosed by Dr. Agin or Dr. Crowle as needing help, then an appointment is made with Meilus Muscular Therapy. Sometimes, when people come off these psychoactive drugs, they find that they are experiencing pain in different parts of their body that was masked by the drugs. Novus Medical Detox Center patients have raved about the results that they received from Al Meilus. Meilus is working to treat the actual cause of pain and discomfort and his treatments bring real relief to people. The number of Meilus treatments for you will depend on the issues being addressed.
  • When the results come back from the tests ordered by Dr. Crowle, you will return to Dr. Crowle’s office to review the test results. Dr. Crowle will prescribe any hormones, drugs or other supplements needed to begin addressing the actual physiological problem.
  • At one of your last visits to Dr. Agin’s office, you will be instructed in the use of injectable vitamins designed by Dr. Agin. These vitamins are designed to address the needs of patients after they return home. Dr. Agin will provide a supply of a liquid multi-vitamin and instruct you in how to remain hydrated properly after returning home.
  • Return home educated about how to remain hydrated, with our injectable vitamin and amino acid kit, and well on your way to discovering and handling the physiological conditions that may be creating any symptoms you may still have after withdrawing from the psychoactive drug.
