I was jailed, I immediately informed the book in medical team of my medications for anxiety. It took them 2 days for me to see a doctor at that point I was going through severe withdraws and was told that Polk County didn't let me take the medication I needed and they were going to put me on another drug to stop my withdraws and another for the anxiety, but would be 2-3 days before the meds arrived and during this time I started having severe withdraws and now have mental episodes along with panic attacks and at one point I was hearing and think things and thought people were mentally abusing me, before I bonded out and got back to my meds. I have notice that this event has caused damage to me well beyond what I had previously had and need to know what my options are legally due to this.The medical personnel informed me they didn't agree with it, but the Polk County, FL jail didn't allow patients to take Xanax or most benzodiazapines. I was previously jailed 1 year earlier in Pinellas County, FL and they called my DR and pharmacist, and within 4 hours I had my prescribed medications. Regardless I was not prescribed anything to prevent the severe withdraws, anxiety and panic attacks that I experienced and that 3 days in the Polk County Jail caused me to mentally break and I have never previously been in the mental state I was in and since returning home I am still having episodes of this nature, I never had any such mental episodes before this event. Polk County, FL has a unique way of doing whatever they like, within the last month they have began recording all calls between inmates and their attorneys to use as evidence.
