Are benzodiazepines safe

Post barbiturates, benzodiazepines took their place for the efficacious usage as the chief anxiolytic agent. Xanax in particular is both very effective yet moderately addictive. Others less so. I have no problem refrainin from them. Most say they are very addictive. YOUR THOUGHTS. ## Hello, Kim! How are you? They are no more safe or dangerous than any other medication, if used properly under doctor's supervision. All medications carry possible risks. However, benzodiazepines are known to be more habit forming and addictive than many others, plus if someone stops them cold turkey, after being on them for a long period of time, there is a risk of their experiencing seizures due to withdrawals. Typical side effects to them may include nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. I did... ...

citalopram vs benzodiazepine

Is citalopram (208 1g) a benzodiazepine and does it work the same as lorazepam? Can you take citalopram for depression? ## No and no! Citalopram is an SSRI antidepressant, so it is not a benzodiazepine and does not work the same. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, thanks very much for your help.But,of course people say things about meds and they don't know what they're talking about.

benzodiazepine and lexapro withdrawl

Help! I have been free of lexapro for over a year. Benzodiazepine Cree for 9 months after a very slow taper. I still suffer from anxiety like I never had before, insomnia, chronic pain, irritability and brain fog. Please warn folks not to take these drugs. I want to die almost every day. I am unable to do much. I have been working very hard on this recovery. Thanks. M W. ## Hello, Madeline! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. However, neither of those medications is a cure, so it's highly possible that you still suffer from anxiety and it may have gotten worse with time. While withdrawal can cause some rebound effects, it wouldn't last for 9 months, especially after having done a very slow taper. Have you tried anything else to treat ... ...

side effects

what is the side effects of the drug pregabalin? I can't seem to find them. ## Pregabalin is essentially an acyclic analog of gabapentin which is more potent than gabapentin and has more linear pharmacokinetics. Neither drug is metabolized to any sigificant extent, and despite their names, neither drug acts as a GABA analog, or has any affinity for the benzodiazepine binding sites at GABA receptors. It's believed to modulate calcium gated ion channels. Drowsiness / grogginess are its most pronounced side effects, along with forgetting words or one's train of thought, and edema (swelling of the hands or lower extremities) and some degree of weight gain (2-5 pounds roughly). Naturally not everyone will experiece all of these to the same extent, if at all. Don't drive a car... ...

withdraw side effects

Flurazepam has anybody had problems cutting back on this drug? ## It really depends on how much and how long you have been taking it. Our bodies can become dependent on anything that we ingest on a regular basis for a long period of time. It doesn't matter if it is your morning coffee or a Diet Coke with lunch. Stopping anything like this abruptly, will result in some withdrawal symptoms, the severity depends, as I said, on how much you used and how long you have been using it. This drug is a Benzodiazepine derivative, so it is addictive in itself, so if you have been on it for a long period of time, you will more than likely experience adverse effects if you stop taking it cold turkey. ...
