    I checked with seizure doctor and he said if taken too often it becomes addicting, I cut the dosage in half myself and it still helps me sleep.

    Hi no I've never heard of signing a disclaimer, if I would have been told about all the side effects I would have never started taking it, been on it for too many years, I really want to get off these but I really need all your support, thanks.

    No, but I am sure they are getting increasingly concerned about them. Having been off them a a couple of weeks now, I was talking about the side effects (or lack of them, as they are gone) and his view was they shoud be banned as they are too highly addictive. I happen to agree with him after going through 6 months of hell trying to get off them.

    I don't think that they should be banned. I'm generally against banning things because it doesn't work. I've been on and off them for years. I come off them every so often to ensure that I don't get addicted. They're not physically addictive anyway, it's more psychological. I have no side effects when I'm off them, apart from the fact that I find it difficult to sleep. However, I couldn't sleep before I tried them and now I can get a good night's sleep and I can function the next day.
