Benzodiazepines (also known as benzos) are among the most commonly abused types of prescription drugs. They have a sedative effect and are commonly used to treat anxiety. Some of the more common types of benzos include Xanax® and Valium®. These drugs are highly addictive and should not be used for prolonged periods of time. If you’re struggling with benzo dependency, whether you started taking them recreationally or you kept on using them to treat anxiety disorder and couldn’t stop, the first step toward recovery is detox. Detox from benzos is best performed with the help of experienced and qualified professionals.
Symptoms of Benzo Withdrawal
Withdrawal symptoms are one of the first signs of addiction. In the case of benzos, withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to sleep disturbance, irritability, increased tension and anxiety, panic attacks, hand tremor, sweating, difficulty in concentration, dry-heaving and nausea, some weight loss, palpitations, headache, muscular pain, and stiffness. While you may be able to detox on your own during the early stages of benzo withdrawal, it’s never advisable to try and undertake severe withdrawal management on your own. The reality is these symptoms can be life-threatening. Detox is a bona fide medical procedure and should be treated as such.
