how to use benzodiazepines appropriately
Questions come up about how to use benzodiazepines appropriately.
We know the many downsides...abuse, dependence, withdrawal, cognitive impairment, depression, falls, and more.
Benzos with a SHORT half-life (alprazolam, etc) have a higher risk of withdrawal symptoms and dependence. And those with a LONG half-life (diazepam, etc) cause more sedation and hangover effects.
