Despite risks, sedatives called 'benzos' widely used across Canada, experts say

When Shirley was handed a three-month prescription for Ativan, her doctor insisted the popular sedative was just an "innocent little thing" to help her sleep.

LOL
Lorazepam is taken mostly by young girls in their teens and twenties. Clonazepam is used for crack addicts and Diazepam is used for old women. That's the Canadian benzo world. Lorazepam costs less then 10c a pill in Toronto. People have to smuggle Alprazolam bc they don't prescribe it out, doctors are more willing to prescribe oxycocet, oxyneo or even hydrocodone syrup before they'd consider prescribing you a benzo.. This is why you can buy medical grade cannabis from a number of long standing .biz sites in BC and hundreds of email mail order services like you find on topix..
No need for alarm in Canada with scripts, they should focus media attention on the growing ephredrine and cocaine/crack use in young teens/adults.. Or the insane rise is violent/gun crime in the past year or two across the country.
Please elect Trudeau.. More Harper feels like impending doom for Canada!

In the UK doctors are so reluctant to prescribe any kind of benzo because they are so addictive. Even to the point of those who need them not being able to get them. Which of course leads people to the black market out of desperation.
I wonder, What happened when Shirley's prescription ran out? Was she left to deal with the horrendous life threatening withdrawl?

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from XTOP24 .COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
