Our Mailbag: Muscles, Tapering, and Lawsuits

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

Do you have questions about benzos? About withdrawal? About how fast you should taper? Or if your exercise is making things worse? Wonder if you can sue? Or do you just want some tips on managing your fear? Either way, this is the episode for you.

In today’s episode, we open our mailbag for questions, comments, and feedback from you the listener. You are the heart of this podcast, and our best episodes are the ones where I can share your concerns and insights. I also share some successes and struggles from my week in the mountains and announce our upcoming interview. I hope you enjoy it.
