Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines, also known colloquially as benzos, are widely prescribed to treat common conditions including seizures, insomnia, and anxiety. These depressant drugs decrease brain activity that provides the user with a sense of relief. Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium are some of the most common benzodiazepines prescribed. This class of drugs is relatively safe when used under the supervision of medical professionals to treat specific issues. However, they're highly addictive and users will constantly feel the need to take more to feel the desired effects.

What are benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms?

Detoxing from benzodiazepine drugs is a difficult and painful process. Patients experience a variety of unpleasant symptoms as their bodies have to deal with the withdrawal of an addictive substance. Symptoms occur throughout the detox period which typically last 1 to 2 weeks and in some cases much longer. The severity of withdrawal struggles varies between each user based on their age, sex, average use, length of use, and other factors. Some potential symptoms include:

 

  • Vomiting

  • Nausea

  • Agitation

  • Anxiety

  • Seizures

  • Heart palpitations

  • Short-term memory issues

  • Sweating

  • Tremors

  • Diarrhea
