Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines, commonly referred to as “benzos,” are some of the most commonly prescribed drugs. These drugs are aimed at treating a number of conditions, including anxiety. Unfortunately, people who use them run the risk of becoming addicted because they are central nervous system depressants.

Some common signs of benzodiazepine abuse may include:

 

  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia and abnormal sleep patterns
  • Hand tremors
  • Muscle weakness
  • Restlessness
