My point is that you are not a medical doctor and should not be giving advice to anyone on the internet about any medical conditions whatsoever. Nowhere in your initial post did you mention anything about withdraw being a possible cause of anxiety. Most of your ridiculous opinions of what could cause someone's stress is literally hilarious.Sounds like the source of stress that caused your anxiety was withdrawal. That can effect how the brain and body functions. I'd consider getting off a drug a life changing decision that may effect sleep and gut health (depending on the drug).
