Benzodiazepines (also known as ‘minor tranquillisers’) are used to treat anxiety, insomnia, epileptic fits and alcohol withdrawal. They are recommended purely for short-term medicinal relief because prolonged usage can quickly and easily lead to benzodiazepine addiction. These types of prescription drugs are especially dangerous when mixed with other depressants like alcohol.

Dependent users can experience unpleasant benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms, which can include decreased concentration, tremors, nausea, vomiting, headaches, anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Uncomfortable bodily sensations and fits can also occur.

  • Drowsiness.
  • Blurred vision.
  • Poor coordination.
  • Amnesia.
  • Hostility / Irritability.
