What Qualifies As a Benzodiazepine?
Benzodiazepines are highly potent prescription medications that were initially prescribed as mild tranquilizers. Today they are considered sedative medications. Many prescription drugs contain benzodiazepine as their primary ingredient, such as the following:
No matter what their name or form, benzos all interact with GABA production in your body. This is the chemical responsible for aiding muscle relaxation, sedation, and slowed brain function. Under normal circumstances, it is produced by your brain to help you unwind at the end of the day and fall asleep.
You can visit our benzo drug rehab center in South Florida at Atlantic Recovery Center.
What Are the Side Effects of Benzos?
Benzodiazepines come with a myriad of side effects:
- Unsteadiness on your feet
- Sleep issues
- Memory issues
Unfortunately, benzodiazepines interact with many other medications and illicit substances. If you are abusing benzodiazepines and you mix them with other things, it can exacerbate the side effects.
Benzodiazepines influence your natural production of GABA, as does alcohol. If you drink alcohol at the same time, it increases your risk for things like severe depression, breathing problems, and memory issues.
If you are experiencing constipation and take benzodiazepines, it can increase the concentrations of benzodiazepine in your blood, making these side effects much worse. Similarly, if you take antacids at the same time as benzodiazepines, the antacids reduce the effectiveness and put you at risk for an overdose if you try to compensate by taking higher doses normal.

How Are Benzos Used?
Benzodiazepines are often prescribed for severe anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, seizures, depression, and alcohol withdrawal. They might be used for sedation prior to surgery or an anesthetic in a medical setting. In these cases, you are under careful supervision throughout.

What Are the Signs of Benzo Abuse?
Signs of benzo abuse indicate the need for South Florida benzo rehab. Identifying signs of abuse in yourself or others can be difficult because people display signs of addiction differently. However, there are some common signs you can look for, including the following:
- Someone in need of South Florida benzo addiction treatment will abuse more prescriptions than they should. This can mean using more than is prescribed in a given day or using a medication for longer than they are supposed to.
- People struggling with benzo abuse might try to stop and, in the process, find out that they have increased anxiety or insomnia, so they end up taking more, and they avoid quitting for fear of experiencing heightened anxiety or other withdrawal symptoms.
- Without turning to a benzo drug rehab center in South Florida, someone might spend a substantial amount of their time using benzos, recovering from benzo use, or trying to get their hands on more drugs.
One of the most significant signs is an addiction which brings with it intense cravings or urges. Once a person reaches this stage, their repeated use of benzos can interfere with their professional responsibilities, social engagements, and personal relationships. People might stop participating in social, leisure, or professional activities and find themselves at the center of frequent work or school problems.
