Yes, I was just happy they mentioned slow taper and reinstating if withdrawal symptoms present. Wish my GP would have known at least that much.

@LostInCanada it’s good they are finally acknowledging it happens but they are quite late to the party and still got a lot of catching up to do . Hopefully more are not hurt before they really understand . 
But thanks for sharing
