I KNOW there are many lawmakers that take Xanax, Ativan and other Benzodiazapenes to relax, while flying, or to help them sleep. Add Ambien into the mix because it makes some people do weird things (supposedly, or as his excuse, that’s why that one Kennedy crashed his car) and the NY state Assembly, Senate, Governor and probably US House and Senate members need to turn in all their weapons. I even remember Colin Powell and Hillary talking about taking Benzos or Ambien to try and get enough sleep when constantly traveling. Wish I could remember the link. This is BS. You don’t just give Xanax or the like to seriously mentally ill people that are going to shoot people, if you do that’s malpractice.
I'm an 18 year G.A.D patient due to Vestibular and Optic sensory processing disorders. I'm an 18 year user of Xanax. My wife is a 28 year user of Xanax for Anxiety. An antidepressant for someone with this type of General Anxiety Disorder can have bad results. I've seen the worse an antidepressant can do to someone short of death. It happened to my wife when a doctor tried her on antidepressants.
My medical records and hers have Allergic to Antidepressants in them. Ironically Benzodiazapenes is the protocol antidote to stop an adverse reaction antidepressants can cause called Serotonin Syndrome.

Hmmm...if true, they should not be able to pass any legislation because of their altered mental states...
Sleep disorders here. Doc gave me Ambien. I quit walking in my sleep in my late Twenties. Ambien brought it back, big time. Almost burnt down my house “sleep cooking.”
