It’s a commonly prescribed muscle relaxer and anti-anxiety medication. But many people aren’t aware benzodiazepine is also addictive. \n\nDr. Timothy Dougherty, a toxicologist at Lee Memorial Health System, says benzodiazepine is found in medications like valium and Xanax. “There are a lot of uses for benzodiazepines and as long as they’re used as they’re prescribed they’re a very good medication.”\n\nWhen taking any type of benzodiazepine it’s important to obey the label. “If you take them as prescribed, but then also drink alcohol or take another sedative, like antidepressants, opiates, alcohol, and then all of a sudden your respiratory depression can lead to respiratory arrest,” said Dr. Dougherty.\n\nBenzodiazepines can relax you, slowing your reaction time and causing you to feel sleepy. “If you are already a little bit relaxed and then you add alcohol on top of it, your balance is going to be off your reaction time is going to be off. You could easily slip and fall,” said Dr. Dougherty.\n\nWhile the medication is beneficial to a lot of patients, health experts say they are addictive. “Benzodiazepines are addictive in the sense that if you’ve been on it for a long period of time if you stop you can go into withdrawal seizures,” said Dr. Dougherty. Which is why he says it’s important to talk to your doctor before stopping or adding anything to the medication. \n\n\nView More Health Matters video segments at leememorial.org/healthmatters/\n\nLee Memorial Health System in Fort Myers, FL is the largest network of medical care facilities in Southwest Florida and is highly respected for its expertise, innovation and quality of care.
