Were you prescribed benzos for insomnia, anxiety, or seizures? Has your short-term use become long-term abuse? Are you unsure about what to do next?
In 2019, over 92 million benzodiazepine prescriptions were dispensed in the United States. Studies from a decade prior indicate an increase in benzo overdose in combination with other drugs and alcohol use. But, not until September 2020 did the FDA require benzodiazepines to include an addiction warning on the label.

What Are Benzos?
Benzos are the street name for Benzodiazepines. Also known by brand names like Valium, Xanax, Halcion, Ativan, and Klonopin, benzos are addictive depressants. Benzodiazepines produce sedation, hypnosis, relieve anxiety and muscle spasms, and reduce seizures.
They are a Schedule IV prescription drug that can be administered in tablets or syrup. Benzos can be taken by mouth, crushed and snorted, or injected.
In the last 20 years, trends show an increase in prescribing benzos and opioids has developed. Studies have shown that this combination creates a ten times higher likelihood of overdose death. Taking into consideration the prevalence of benzodiazepines in overdose related deaths has caused doctors and prescribing physicians to monitor the prescription more closely.
Benzos should only be taken as advised by a doctor and doctors should be made aware of any and all medications individuals are currently taking to decrease accidental overdose.
Why Are Benzos Addictive?
Benzos are addictive because of the impact they have on the brain and the powerful high they can create.
Benzos block the inhibitors for dopamine in the brain allowing the dopamine-producing neurons in the brain to run unchecked. This excessive release of dopamine creates a feel-good high triggering the reward centers in the brain.
In simpler terms, you take a benzo, it creates an intense high making you feel relaxed and calm, and your body wants that again. This cycle of your body wanting more or craving the benzos creates addiction.
What Are the Signs of Benzo Addiction?
Benzo abuse is characterized by the specific impact it has on the mind and body. Benzo abuse can cause amnesia, hostility, irritability, vivid or disturbing dreams, sleepiness, and/or relaxed mood. Signs of a benzo overdose include extreme drowsiness, impaired coordination, decreased reflexes, decreased respiration, coma, and death.
