What are Benzodiazapines?
Benzodiazepines are some of the most commonly abused drugs in America because they’re easy to get and doctors often prescribe them for anxiety or insomnia. Common benzodiazepine-related substances include Valium, Xanax, and Klonopin; all three can be dangerous when misused on their own but especially so when mixed with other prescription medicines or alcohol consumption
A sedative called “benzodiazepine,” which raises levels from inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA reduces feelings like anxiety while relaxing muscular tension – making it one useful tool against major stressors such as panic disorders. While these medications may seem safe at first use due to its calming effect, there have been reports linking long term abuse (more than six months)
Benzodiazepines are a safe and effective drug for most people but can lead to dangerous side effects when misused. We will closely monitor their vitals throughout the benzodiazepine addiction treatment process at Genesis Medical Detox.
The improper use of benzodiazepine drugs carries significant risks that should not be ignored or taken lightly because they have addictive qualities like other Schedule II medications do; meaning if you abruptly stop taking it your body will start producing withdrawal symptoms. These include:
- unsteadiness (especially in older people, who may fall and experience injuries)
- slurred speech
- muscle weakness
- memory problems
- nausea (feeling sick)
- dry mouth
- blurred vision
Medically assisted benzo detox programs provide an effective way for those dependent on this drug or have other addictions that require medical attention, so we recommend them if possible!
Withdrawal from benzodiazepines can be very uncomfortable and withdrawal symptoms may include insomnia, mood swings, or anxiety.
If you are physically addicted to these drugs, in that case, a medically-assisted benzo rehab program will ensure your safety throughout the process as not all people who take them develop an addiction issue with their usage patterns over time. Still, some do get hooked quicker than others due to genetics making physical dependence more severe in those individuals.
