I am addicted to benzos but am going through a tough stretch

Customer Question

I am addicted to benzos but am going through a tough stretch and i need them for now. I was off of them for a while thanks to gabapentin and then lyrica. Effexor helped for a month or so. Then i couldnt resist and started again. Now the gabapentin and lyrica wont help much so what can i get my doctor to give alongside the benzos to eventually take over the benzos. I know maoi's are dangerous, ssri's dont work for me etc. I know all the meds but maybe a combo of some sort maybe?
