The Lexotan contains the active ingredient Bromazepam, which is a Benzodiazepine derivative, so yes, it can be habit forming.


However, in your situation the only thing I can really suggest is, after you finally get the surgery, you should really taper off of it, as slowly as possible.


Do you have any idea how long the wait is?

As to the other symptoms, they could very well be related to anxiety, but you should consult a doctor to be certain.
