Consider Exit Strategies to Limit Use of Benzodiazepines
You’ll see benzodiazepines come under even more scrutiny...as FDA requires boxed warnings to include abuse, dependence, and withdrawal.
These risks aren’t new...but they weren’t in boxed warnings before.
The change is partly due to a rise in overdose deaths involving benzos. Over 90 million benzo Rxs were dispensed in the U.S. in 2019...and about half of benzos are continued for 2 months or longer.
