Hi Elizabeth

Is this the same drug you mentioned before that an American doctor prescribed ?
It says in the Wikipedia article that benzodiazepams are preferred in the UK.

I find it alarming that a doctor should prescribe a medicine that has been banned. It certainly doesn't inspire confidence in their knowledge or being up to date but I might have misunderstood.
I suggest you see your GP and have a thorough revision of all this group of meds that you take. It can quite easily happen that there's over prescribing or simply that they could be reduced or exchanged for just as effective ones. Maybe a pain management centre would give better advice than the GP.

All the best
