Making a Difference

Margaret Mead: “… a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has”

There are little things we can do to make our voice heard in the fight against benzodiazepines.  Everyone needs to be proactive if there is ever to be the possibility of change.

You can write to the FDA 'MedWatch' on line about your negative benzodiazepine experience. If enough people have a similar experience with a drug they may put a Black Box Warning on it. Drugs with this warning get more precautions and media. If people do not come forth with their experiences the FDA will never know. There are amendments made to labels and literate if new findings are found. There was an amendment made to benzodiazepine labels in 2001 regarding benzodiazepines and the elderly.

You can write to the FDA at 'MedWatch'. When you get to the page go to the top

You can also call the FDA with questions on 1888-463-6332.
