Our expert says:
Tolerance and addiction are closely related ; and if his dentist "friend" gave him another prescription knowing that he already had one, that was unprofessional and foolish. Depending on the nature of his physical health re HIV and ARV's, that might be responsible for some degree of the malaise ; but certainly the Rohypnol abuse could also be very relevant here. he doesn't necessarily have to go into rehab, but should see a good local shrink with experience in drug dependency, for assessment and advice, and to devise a safe plan for shifti off of the rohypnol, either to do without such sedatives altogether, or to switch to safer modern alternatives, like Stilnox. But there would still, in that event, be a substantial risk of becoming dependent on ANY sedative, in view of his history, and there might need to be caerful plans made to limit his access to such drugs and keep their use to a minimum
