What are Benzodiazepines?


Benzodiazepines (benzos) are prescription medications that treat mood disorders, anxiety, and panic attacks. They can also be used as muscle relaxers. Benzos are effective and safe when used correctly. However, the medications are very addictive.

If someone takes benzodiazepines in high doses, tolerance develops over time. The body is used to taking the drugs and needs them to function normally. Withdrawal occurs if use is stopped abruptly, and these symptoms can be life-threatening.
