I am a 25 year old female, started taking painkillers
Patient :I am a 25 year old female, started taking painkillers and benzos on a daily basis and sometimes and uppers until a couple months ago. I have been hospitalized for seizures from Xanax withdrawal and once for being catatonic for two weeks from Benson withdrawal. Now that I have stopped using, what are the long term effects on my brain and body from taking those drugs for so long?
