Ok so my appointment is tomorrow Im slowly getting over my irrational fears however I must point something out to you this has nothing to do with my recent fear at all as I have asked my doctor about it before can a person get itchy with the use of benzos ?I asked my doc long ago as I found taking a full 0.5mg rivotril used to make me a little itchy I took xanor 0.5mg tonight and I felt itchy after about an hour please bear in mind this has got nothing to do with my recent fear as I have question it before haha I have slight eczema I suppose its possible. my doc thinks rivotril can never do this but I took xanor and after an hour Im itchy !

Hi boo,
As you've begun to gain control of the irrational fears ( heaven knows, there are quite enough rational fears around to keep us occupied !) this is a major and commendable achievement. Itchy on exposure to benzo's must be possible, though I haven't come across it before. I suppose it might alternatively be a reaction to some other ingredient in the tablets / pills --- which always contain some other usually inert ingredients to help it hold together. I understand your doctor's viewpoint --- indeed people are quite often given benzo's like these when they have an itchy eczama, to help them feel calmer and less itchy.
