He know, president, Trump hits back as a source tells NBC News, Michael. Cohen is willing to tell Muller that Trump knew about that infamous Trump Tower meeting, before, it happened, high. Anxiety as, the nation is rightly focused on the opioid crisis, doctors warning about another, crisis, has, a lot of patience folks. Utter. Hell it was the worst nightmare that you can imagine and a big-city scare late, today a. Plane. Lands, in the middle of a major urban, highway. This. Is NBC, Nightly News with Lester. Holt. Good. Evening as we come on the air tonight close to 90 wildfires. Are raging across, the country many of them in California stretching. From one end of the state to the other overnight, killing, two of those who were trying to stop them the fires are exploding, in size one, so rapidly, it sent hundreds, fleeing in the middle of the night barely. Escaping, the moving wall of flames, NBC. News national, correspondent Miguel, Almaguer, is in Redding California with. The latest. It didn't, just take homes it took lives, firefighter. And a dozer driver, killed, in this massive, Inferno in Redding, California we, mourn the, loss. Overnight. The car fire tripling. In size. Fueled by 70, mile an hour winds, Wow. Crews. Forced, to switch from defending, homes to getting people out safely. Whatever they put fires, creeping real real close to some residences, up here a hundred and twenty structures, damaged, as flames, jumped the Sacramento, River and a wall of unstoppable. Fire swept. In is, just crazy. It's just out of control. And. There is very little they can do. Condition. So explosive, a mass exodus, created, chaos in jammed roads a local, television, station pulling.

The Plug on its live broadcast. We. Are going to leave the station because it is now unsafe, to be here this is a monster, in Southern, California, the Cranston, Fire creating. Its own weather near Palm Springs. Firefighters. In danger. And they put their lives on the line to, save everyone, else's, and their property, we, just can't thank them enough in, central, California. The Ferguson, Fire shuttering Yosemite, Valley another. Day I've, been doing 31 years the most exclusive, fires that I've ever seen in my career explosive. And deadly. Super. Fires erupting. In every region lighting. Up the Golden, State, and the dangerous, glower drag. The. Conditions, are so bad here in Northern California the, National, Guard has been called in at one point they were rescuing, babies from a local hospital as a precaution. As they were treating, the injured and as, you can see tonight Lester, in so many communities, the devastation, stretches, block, after block Lester. Just amazing, nothing left there Miguel Almaguer, thank you none, of that big news of the American economy growing, at its strongest pace, in four years and president Trump promising, it's just the start of an even bigger economic, upswing but there were also concerns about possible, speed bumps ahead including the president's, trade war we get to tell some NBC's, Tom Costello. From. The Atlantic, to the Pacific more. Evidence, today of a strong economy the, four point 1 percent economic growth in the second quarter the strongest, since a 5%, quarter in 2014. During the Obama administration, President. Trump today was quick to take credit these numbers are very very sustainable. This. Isn't a one-time shot I happen. To think we're gonna do extraordinarily, well. In. Our next report next, quarter in. Chicago, real estate technology. Company trusts started, just a year ago has, already gone from six to thirty three employees, CEO. Andrew Booker is still hiring why the optimism, what's happening here on the ground in Chicago it's. A vibrant economy and, I think people are positive, about how it's going to turn out for them and it's truly. From a small to medium-sized business there's a lot of support corporate. Leaders suggest last year's tax cut gave the economy, a jolt now. A sudden, surge in agricultural. Activity, before the trade war and tariffs kicked in appeared. To have provided a sudden one-time, boost Nobel. Prize-winning, economist, Lars Peter Hansen trade, wise could be a substantial, drag on the economy because.

The Economy these days is integrated. One country starts imposing tariffs that other ones kind, of balance that areas. Of lingering concern, stagnant. Worker wages a growing budget deficit, and farmers. Who are paying the price for trade, disputes, with China Mexico, and Canada our corn. Commodity, prices are down approximately. 25 percent since, the first a year we're operating at a loss right now. The. Country's strong economic, growth comes at a time when we're also experiencing. The longest, streak of hiring on record unemployment just 4% and robust. Hiring, going on in business manufacturing and, healthcare, luster. Tom Costello in, Chicago, tonight thanks now, to the studying new claims about President, Trump his former personal, attorney Michael, Cohen allegedly. Now willing to tell Robert Miller that mr. Trump had advanced. Knowledge of that June 2016. Meeting at Trump, Tower that, occurred between his campaign, officials, and Russians. Offering, dirt on Hillary Clinton, the. President taking, to Twitter today to, deny that claim and slamming, Cohen his once trusted, fixer NBC. News chief White House correspondent Hallie. Jackson with, the story. For. The ninth time this week the president staying silent about, his former, fixer, on camera. But not online, that's. After Michael, Cohen according, to a knowledgeable, source asserts, he'd be willing to tell the special counsel that Donald Trump knew about that June 2016. Trump Tower meeting, the one where his son tried to get dirt on Hillary Clinton, from Russians, linked to the Kremlin, if true, the bombshell revelation. Would fly in the face of denials, like these did, you tell, your father anything, about that oh it. Was such a nothing. There. Was nothing to tell. The. President standing. By his position, today tweeting, I did, not know of the meeting with my son Don Jr sounds, to me like someone, is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam the president's, lawyer says Cohen who worked for the president for years is lying, he's been lying all week I mean or four to four, years so why does it matter if it suddenly comes to light that back when this meeting took place in Trump Tower in June, of 2016, not.

Only Did the president, know about it but he in some way blessed, it in advance then. We're in an entirely, different place, when we talk about collusion. And for, purposes of Bob Miller's investigation. If Cohen's, claim is true the president's, son could be in trouble for lying to Congress, Donald, Trump Jr's lawyer says we are very. Evident of the accuracy. And reliability of. The information that has been provided, by Don Jr for, now no proof of whatever went down he. Said they, said situation. As, for. Donald, Trump jr. he was seen today, at the airport, waiting for a flight just a few feet from none other than the. Special Counsel you see him on the left there robert muller spokesperson, says the two did not interact but Lester it's one of those DC moments you just can't make up that's, a picture that'll get around all right Hallie Jackson at, the White House Thanks is, your vote at risk in the critical, midterm, elections, with just a hundred days to go current, and former officials, tell NBC News, the, Trump administration has, no central, strategy to stop Russia from meddling again this. Is a Democratic, senator up for re-election says. Russians, already tried to hack her computers, there's, NBC, News White House correspondent Kristen. Welker with more. Explosive. Revelations Russian. Hackers targeted the Senate offices, of Missouri, Senator Claire McCaskill. In issue she's, railed against, in the past I, never side, see the day that. Russia would. Go after the. Heart of our country the Democrat is facing one of the toughest, races in the fall in a fiery statement, McCaskill, saying I will not be intimidated I've said, it before and, I will say it again, Putin, is a thug and a bully the hackers use the same strategy, to break into the emails of Clinton's campaign, chair but this time they failed Russia, has built a, magnificent. Overt. Offensive. Cyber capability. That, cannot be deterred, late today President, Trump held his first security, meeting on election, meddling with just a hundred days until the midterms, after, the White House releasing, a statement that doesn't mention Russia but, insists, mr. Trump will not tolerate foreign, interference but. Publicly, the president's, sent mixed messages, I accept. Our intelligence. Community's. Conclusion. That. Russia's, meddling, in. The. 2016. Election. Took place. That. Contradicts. His own intelligence, agencies, who say Russia was the sole actor, and is still ramping, up its attacks they are the ones that are trying to wreak, havoc over their election process, and tonight, President Putin says he's invited, mr. Trump to Moscow, something, the White House says the president is open to even, as fallout mounts, from their first face-to-face, Kristen. Welker NBC, News the White House, it's, been a long time coming but the day has finally arrived, for some families of fallen American, heroes of what is often referred to as The Forgotten War, today, on the 65th, anniversary of, the Korean Armistice, the, remains of what are believed to be dozens, of American, servicemen, killed in, the Korean War are coming, home NBC.

News Chief foreign correspondent Richard, Engel has the story. In. A solemn, ceremony in, South Korea, 55. Small. Wooden, boxes, were unloaded, wrapped, in the blue UN, flag the, flag u.s., troops fought under in the Korean War, inside. What, are believed to be the remains of American. Servicemen, who died missing. In action but. Not forgotten, around. 53, hundred are still classified, as missing, in North Korea for, their relatives, today like, the son of lieutenant, Hal downs closure. May finally, be coming we've, been waiting a long time for things like this to happen and, it's. The beginning, not. An ending it's an achievement for, president Trump at his, summit in June the North Korean, leader Kim jong-un, promised. To send home American, remains president. Trump today I want to thank chairman Kim for. Keeping. His word these, incredible, American heroes will soon lay at rest on, sacred. American soil, North. Korea has also reportedly, begun to dismantle, a rocket, launch site we, visited while it was still operational, this is what US officials are so concerned, about North, Korea says this rocket is strictly for scientific. Purposes but, today was, about honoring those, who fell on a foreign, battlefield, and never, came home the, next stop Hawaii, for, detailed, DNA. Vacation, that could take months Richard, Engel NBC News. We're. Back now with a new alert from doctors, as much of the nation, rightly, focuses, on the opioid, crisis, that has so many people caught in its grip there's, another looming crisis, it's not getting as much attention some. 14, million Americans take, anti-anxiety. Drugs. But, now doctors are warning their more addictive, and dangerous than, people think NBC. News medical correspondent dr. John Torres with that story. Christie. Huff says it took just three weeks for her to get hooked on xanax, nothing's. Been the same since I took these pills a wife, mother, and doctor herself she, was prescribed the drug for insomnia three, years ago when. She decided to stop she, suffered, painful withdrawals, it. Was utter. Hell it was the worst nightmare that you can imagine then I would wake up with my heart pounding, just, bolt upright in bed in. A panic xanax. Is part of a class of drugs known as benzos, that also includes valium medications. Commonly prescribed, for anxiety and, trouble, sleeping or benzos, the next opioid crisis well, they're not really the next opioid crisis they're a crisis, right now it's, amazing. How, much. People do not realize that Ben's days beans are addictive, and their doctors. Their prescribers. Don't realize it this is what's really frightening prescriptions. Have skyrocketed, more than 60 percent in the last two decades and overdose. Deaths involving. Benzos, have quadrupled, the, maker of Valium tells NBC News these drugs are safe when prescribed, carefully, the xanax manufacturer. Says abuse, has become a growing public health threat and it will continue to educate patients, and physicians about, the proper use it's, recommended, patients take these drugs no more than two to four weeks really, the best treatment, for a chronic anxiety, disorder. Or a chronic, sleeping disorder is behavioral. Interventions, with her doctors helped Kristi is carefully, weaning herself off this addictive, drug unless.

Sir These drugs seem are so popular because they seem like a quick fix but the message here is doctors, need to be more careful about prescribing, them also if you are using them don't try to quit cold-turkey you, need a doctor's supervision to, do it safe as we saw being weaned I'm carefully, over that's the important all right doctor thank you still, ahead the bomb show new report, about a longtime head of CBS several, women leveling, accusations of, sexual misconduct and, harassment, also. Our nightly spotlight. The young star of the summer's breakout, hit movie, that has everyone talking. There's. Breaking news tonight concerning, one of the biggest media mega, Titans, in America, CBS, chief les Moonves, accuse, of sexual, misconduct and, harassment by, half a dozen women in a bombshell new, report from Ronan Farrow at, The New Yorker some. Of the allegations, include forcible, touching or, kissing we. Get late details on the story from NBC's Stephanie Gosk. The. New Yorker magazines, explosive, article describes, multiple, accounts, of sexual harassment, stretching. Back decades, against, les Moonves the, head of CBS and one of the most powerful, media moguls in the country six, women four named and two unnamed, tell, reporter Ronan Farrow that, they believe their careers were hurt when they rejected, moonves's, advances. Actress. And writer Illeana, Douglas tells, the magazine what. Happened to me was sexual assault and then, I was fired for not participating, Farrah, who won a Pulitzer, Prize for his reports on Harvey Weinstein, describes. A hostile environment at, the network that, extended, to CBS, News and its, flagship, show 60, minutes, according. To the article 19, current, and former employees, say, Jeff Fager the executive, producer, of 60 minutes allowed. Harassment. In the division Fager issued a sharply worded response, to the allegations against, him and the network it, is wrong that our culture, can be falsely, defined by a few people with, an axe to grind who, are using an important, movement as a weapon, to get even this. Is not the first time allegations, of sexual misconduct of, hit CBS in, November. Last year morning, anchor Charlie, Rose was fired after, eight women accused, him of inappropriate. Behavior in a Washington, Post report, even. Before today's article was published rumors. Of it sent CBS, stock plummeting, dropping. More than 6% by, the close. Tonight. I CBS, analyst mu has responded, to the New Yorker article in the article, has denied, any allegations. Of sexual assault and added I recognize. That there were times decades, ago that I may have made some women uncomfortable. By making advances, those, were mistakes, and I regret, them immensely, CBS, and its statement, added, CBS, is very mindful of all workplace, issues, and takes, each report of misconduct very, seriously, we do not believe however that the, picture of our company, created, in The New Yorker represents. A larger organization that, does its best to treat its tens of thousands, of employees with. Dignity and respect Western. All right Stephanie thank you coming, up tonight emergency, landing, the big shock at rush hour for drivers, in a major American city and the big news of a galaxy, far far away how Star Wars plans to bring back a beloved, character. Drivers. In Chicago, got quite a shock this afternoon, when a small plane made, an emergency landing, of the city's busy Lakeshore, Drive just, as rush-hour was getting underway pilot. Reported a possible engine, failure, but managed to bring the plane down without hitting, any cars police. Say no injuries, are reported, shooting. For the next Star Wars film is set to get underway next week in London and tonight director, JJ Abrams says. The late Carrie Fisher, will appear in episode 9 as Princess Leia he, says with a support, and blessing, from her daughter Billie we found a way to honor Carrie's, legacy, and role as Leia in episode 9 by, using unseen, footage we shot together, in episode 8 Fisher. Died in 2016. After finishing her work on the last Jedi up. Next, we're going back to school of the young star and director, of the surprise, movie, hit of the summer our, spotlight, is. Finally. In a summer blockbuster season. Dominated. By superheroes, and sequels, tonight we're shining our spotlight, on an independent, movie becoming, a breakthrough hit eighth, grade, follows, the agony, of middle school with a story so many can relate to no matter your age here's.

NBC's Kristen, Dahlgren. Okay. So growing up can be a little bit scary and, weird, in, the film eighth grade director, Bo Burnham and star Elsie Fisher capture those cringe-worthy. Moments. That come with coming-of-age I think, it's just hard to be a kid. So. The, topic of today's video is, being. Yourself a 13. Year old navigating, the final week of middle school at a time when social media only, magnifies, social, anxiety, when did you get snapchat what good. The. Film has led Fisher now 15, to share her own struggles, with depression in, eighth grade hopefully. It can also show like you know you're not like broken. You're fine for. The 27, year old director it's not just about adolescence. But all of society, I would look at the internet and say like why is everyone, acting like 13 year olds right. Now so. I thought all I might as well look. At the Internet through the only people that are acting their own age on it which are actual 13-year olds with. Its r-rating, real 8th graders have to go with an adult sparking, family, conversations. For, me was really relatable, because I'm kind. Of exactly, like her a little bit I feel like I was watching our life. You, just need to face your fears embracing. The awkward, and finding, hope for, the future I hope this movie is a way. To talk about it and the way to address it and maybe, a way to address your fears and also a suasion a little bit it's. Scarier, than you think but the kids are stronger than you think Kristen, Dahlgren NBC, News New York, we.

And May he bless those who are fighting everyday to get away from disgusting crime ridden cities full of the trash and drugs. All run by Democrats.

More rip-offs from Big Pharma, when are we going to make these companies act like good citizens instead of vulture capitalist. And the government is corrupt, but look at how Big Business operates, look how many failed too, so maybe the government is not the problem, maybe the oligarchs that do not care about you and me or the country.

$12 billion in aid to agri-farmers. Nothing says success like corporate welfare aid and a soaring public debt. Debt Soars UnderPresident Donald Trump Tax Cuts | The Last Word | MSNBC/watch?v=Y_9GEEq8S_k&t=1s

NBC- while traditionally and responsibly the role of the media is to report the news and not necessarily make news. Collectively the media is the last defense between government and the public. Evidence clearly shows no oversight or plan to protect us. Please do more

NBC "The historical voice of reason" Question, what can a can a country do when the Presidency and the Congress clearly are incompetent and having no clear plan to protect our elections or our country? While a pushback from the justice department, intelligence community and the Military would be an extreme measure. It seems more than warranted. Who else is willing to "Make Sure" it at the very least call the Congress and the presidency out, that this issue represents a clear and present immediate danger to the public and our country.

Loved the full coverage! Hoping to see more episodes of NBCs full Nightly News Coverage. It's a relief to not scroll all over the place to get my news around the nation. Thank you, NBC.

I stop using Twitter because of Trump... He has destroyed the platform... Impeach Trump!!! Now!!!!

...the American President...Donald J hard working machine...strong economic growth...make America great again...!!!

Pablo Jimenez oh boy, you again Pablo. When the economy takes a turn for the worst you'll be right here commenting it's the Liberals fault. Do you not get tired of the constant lies of trump that are provably false. Why are you watching this network when you know you worship Fox and their Overlord Putin. Your hero Trump is a traitor and I'm sorry you can't realize that. "Denial" is such a powerful force in The Human Condition isn't it Pablo? Have a good day

Yes he knew. His children would not have a Russian meeting without dad knowing.

Five of the six women accusing Les Moonves are telling the truth about his sexual misconduct.

The timing of the North Korean troops coming home are a problem for me and God.

Clearly votes are at risk.Trump indirectly paid Putin. If he did it once he is likely to do it again.

Donald jr is a liar.

Trump has knowledge. It does not take the truth from God to figure that out but I'm verifying that's a fact.

Our economy will be hit hard by that trade war Trump has us in. We will see the effects in six months if he does not try to reverse the damage he's already done.

Global warming is real. We are polluting this world. There are so many cars on the roads. No wonder why the end of times are here. I can't believe there are stupid people who do not believe its happening. What's up Al Gore. You go kid. I thought you should have won the nobel peace prize but I didn't get a vote..damn

There are so many cars on the road because people are too selfish and too materialistic, everybody wants a big huge yard with trees and picket fences and this has led to urban sprawl which has made cars a virtual necessity throughout virtually the entire USA. It's amazing how much space people claim to need (but there is a difference between "need" and "want")

Alison Northrup , I would think a lot of them know it's real but nothing is going to get in the way of their thirst for more corporate power and of course money which of course includes the fake term "Clean Coal". I guess they put it in a washing machine.Trump is removing regulations of car emissions in California. It took decades for California to improve their air. Anyway , I liked your comments Allison, keep it up

*finally* some coverage on deadly, scary benzodiazepines!!! even at the lowest dose they cause horrific rebound. please do not compare them to opiates. benzodiazepines are much worse...nothing to do with abuse or addiction either. instead they cause brain damage and physical dependency that Doctors aren't informing their patients about. to make matters worse, some Doctors aren't letting patients taper off causing horrific rebound effects that can last for years because we simply stopped without a proper taper or warning!

i took them because i needed them. but i asked my doctor to lower the dosage. they are no joke and i dont recommend anyone take them. i have a prescription for .5mg of lorazepam and i dont take them unless i absolutely need to. havent needed one in over a year. doctors prescribing them as "X pill per day" are the problem. they are as needed, not a set amount per day.

lissa leggs I don't. I used to because I trusted a Doctor. she meant well. she was just trying to help (I was diagnosed with PTSD). thank goodness she let me taper off because each time I simply stopped the alprazolam (xanax) I suffered with non-stop pain and twitching. I also felt like I had unbelievable amounts of caffeine in me...couldn't sleep for days and days until I hallucinated. I can understand why people commit suicide. I know two people that had a seizure after they stopped their prescription. it's no medication. lawmakers need to ban the manufacturers that are destroying people's lives just for profit.

Michele Easy fix, don't take them. I didn't.

The White Trash House.

I'm afraid Miguel put himself in danger

OMG!!! What is going on with these fires and California?? Did it become part of the normal life? My gosh it has been happening for so long that I almost react to it like I do to any rain storm


kinda exactly a little bit

As a conservative, I am pleasantly surprised to see the news stories about Trump to be relatively fair. Although I will admit 4 or 5 stories about Trump in one night is a little crazy. There is a lot more going on in the world...

lyrica, gabapentin, neurrontin, any SSRI's all have addictive properties. Even if you aren't mentally addicted, any man made script has potential for physical addction. You are altering your brain's natural defenses. Every medication that is man-made can be found in nature. Do your research and find a natural comparative!

Wages are beyond stagnant. People need to turn down jobs that do not meet living wage requirements, especially in regions like New York and California where costs of living far exceed wages.

People need to turn to God. California is out of control on so many levels. Balance needs to be found.

Ce R , I don't believe God would do this.

Trump as a president is obviously dangerous in many ways, however, he also manages to become boring. and while much of the country lets down its guard, Trump continues to do much harm!

The wild fires are the beginnings of Tribulations promised by God for not keeping his ways. Most people want to be the top power, but need to bow to the Lord Jesus Christ. Keep the Saturday Sabbath Holy (Sunday sabbath is the mark of the beast), follow the 10 commandments in the KJV of the Holy Bible. Show God that you are faithful and virtuous. God is manifesting humanity through punishment and reward. If the Angles showed themselves, then one would not manifest the virtue of faith. The USA needs to repent from living in sin. Everyone wants to have their own way, choose their own morals, and redefine the true word of God. That is like eating at all the restaurants for free, it doesn't happen.

12:15 The solution to anxiety and many mental disorders is natural B-12 (not synthetic). Ritalin, Prozac and cannabis are being prescribed before analysis of vitamin deficiencies. B-12 only exists in grass fed animals. Industrial agriculture has taken hens and cows out of the pasture and B-12 deficiencies have become epidemic.

Impeach him Trump

How can this Russian and Russian wife occupied the White House of the USA and call real citizens immigrants ... smh

Nice Shot, Perfect timing when they dropped the Water, That was Sick, I am sure you guys worked hard to get that shot! 2:20

Trump assisted with writing Trump Jr response to the meeting with the Russian at Trump Tower; so he must of knew something.

I have trouble believing Trump knows anything that's going on at any given time. He is truly clueless. Besides, helping write a response doesn't prove he knew about the meeting before it happened. That old man is just not smart enough -- he watches Fox News for his information. Many other people are organizing this mess. Trump is just the guy who they can put in the oval office & be their puppet.

Some president. Embarrassing... Take the handcuffs off ur wife..Freak..perverted. Lil man


"The Economy is surging" they say, but they don't explain. Arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the Golf States is enough to explain the 'surge" this quarter. No parsing out of what drove the surge much less why and even much much less whether it is sustainable. Yet, the implication is that things will continue this way. How can anyone call this journalism?

Cyber attacks are part of modern warfare.We are under attack.Why would a president embrace the enemy? TREASON.

Pablo Jimenez , You misunderstood my comment. The Russians are still hacking our elections,have tried to hack our power grid. Our President continue s to deny the security services.

zonnekat1 ,I hope he continues to win.

Mimi Mc guys are so obsessed with russia...just pack your bags and move with Vladimir...

Mimi Mc Trump keeps on winning...☺

Alison Northrup do you realise that the accusation isn’t even that they changed votes, it’s that they used Facebook propaganda.

northern Siberia hit 90 degrees, 2 weeks ago!! is that normal? parts of northern Africa hit 124 degrees recently. the scientists in antartica are reporting that the ice sheets are actually melting away from the middle of the ice shelf. that confirms that the oceans are warming and rising. here's another crazy factoid! the planets in our solar system that have actual weather patterns are warming as well (they have been for 2 decades). are we the cause of global warming? I would say, we have attributed to it. but there is an outside force in our solar system that is causing our planet and other planets to warm.

im truly glad and i hope you can keep on the same track, but saying they arent needed is kind of ignorant. not everyone has the same reaction to pharmaceuticals. I agree that no one should be on benzos long term which is why i stopped them a long time ago, but they helped me short term. im still unable to work or even leave the house for long periods of time, but i wouldnt be where i am today without the help of benzos.

yanney I was diagnosed with Panic Attacks and PTSD...doing better without any pharmaceuticals. they all made me much worse.

not needed at all, michele? try and live my life. i have panic attacks day in and day out. have you ever felt like you were legitimately dying multiple times per day? enough to send you to the hospital? benzos helped me figure out whats real and whats not. no doctor told me to stop taking them, i stopped on my own once i learned how to better handle the attacks. i couldnt have done it without benzos.

Sidney Michelle indeed. my niece was put on that stuff. it caused a seizure just like benzodiazepines cause. it damages the gaba receptors just like benzos...very scary.

Michele Another over prescribed drug is Gabapentin. It's very dangerous and difficult to get off of.

yanney they are not "needed" at all though. it's just a big business. the way that they work on the brain's gaba receptors cause patients to be stuck on them for life unless they realise what's happening and their Doctor gives them a safe taper schedule.

Boathousejoe D I don't drink alcohol and never mixed it with any other medications.

and mixed with alcohol will turn you into raving lunatic.Please don't take.

shame on the benzodiazepine manufacturer that *lied* to NBC and tried to *victim blame* as victims of their products suffer debilitating, horrific rebound effects (new symptoms that occur when you stop taking them) that can last for years. nobody is abusing them as the manufacturer claimed. benzodiazepine rebound happens after taking them AS PRESCRIBED. my former Pharmacist admitted it (former because I don't go to a pharmacy anymore). my Doctor didn't know because manufacturers are lying to Doctors too!

Gotta love this MAGA economy!

Oh great. Since our economy is doing so great on so grand and permanent a scale, how 'bout we get back to cleaning up Puerto Rico, invest whatever it takes to reunite those fams torn apart at the border...and what ever happened with the hardest hit areas of Texax and Florida?

Agolf Twittler taking credit for Obama's economy and on the other hand traitor trumpsky is tearing it down...and he is happy and boasting about it hahaha! Also if you support a traitor then you yourself are a traitor, simple as that! ✌☮

*finally* some coverage on deadly, scary benzodiazepines!!! even at the lowest dose they cause horrific rebound. please do not compare them to opiates. benzodiazepines are much worse...nothing to do with abuse or addiction either. instead they cause brain damage and physical dependency that Doctors aren't informing their patients about and some Doctors aren't letting patients taper off causing horrific rebound effects (new symptoms that occur when you stop taking them) that can last for years because we simply stopped without a proper taper or warning!

Dawna DiGardiner manufacturers need to be stopped too. they are well aware that everybody has to keep taking benzodiazepines just to ward off the horrific rebound effects that they cause. the problem is pharmaceutical companies have way more money than law firms and politicians.

Michele thanks for sharing your experience. It sounds like someone needs to put a check on doctors

yanney "keep on the same track"??? it's not as if they were addictive or tempting! they didn't even benefit me.
