Susan Gordon, a retired nurse living with her husband in North Carolina, has completed her new book “The Benzo Monster”: a scathing look at the unethical practices of big pharmaceutical companies who put profit above people's health, says the author.
“Many uninformed, trusting people become accidentally addicted to these prescription medications given to them by their doctors who want to please their patients. Physical dependence on drugs, like benzodiazepines, are a monumental problem in this country. Little is known by healthcare professionals about how to withdraw from these addictive substances. People can become addicted in a short period of time. Trying to come off the drugs, even under a doctor's care, leaves them experiencing physical, mental and emotional symptoms that can be unbearable,” Gordon said. “This book is a true record of an individual who became accidentally addicted to prescription pills, given to her by her physician, and the nightmare that followed trying to withdraw.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Gordon’s work is a probing tale of dependence on prescription medication and dealing with withdrawal.
“Drug companies are pushing their products on doctors with one purpose in mind: to get rich,” Gordon said. “Physicians want to please their patients who want quick fixes to their problems. This is a dangerous combination,” she said. “Doctors are trained by big pharmaceutical companies, who do not have the interest of sick people at the heart of their work.”
Readers who wish to experience this chilling work can purchase “The Benzo Monster” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
