Benzos, as they are sometimes called, can be dangerous and abused if not used as prescribed by a doctor. Though some evidence shows that even when taken as prescribed, they can still be harmful and addictive over a long period of use. Some common names for benzodiazepines include Xanax, Librium, Klonopin, Valium, Ativan, Serax and Tranxene.

What causes Benzodiazepine addiction?
There are mostly two main concerns when it comes to a benzodiazepine addiction. Abuse and dependency. Abuse is the most readily blamed reason as it is easy to understand why. However, statistically abuse is not the number one reason addiction happens. Dependency is. Anytime a person uses a drug for any other purpose other than what the doctor has prescribed it for or in any other amount, they may be in danger of addiction. Users over time can become so dependent on the drug that they cannot function without it. Most users who have sought treatment said they used longer and more frequent out of fear of what they might feel like if they stopped.
What are the signs of Benzodiazepine addiction?
It can be difficult to know if you or a loved one is addicted to a benzodiazepine. Afterall, they are prescribed in most cases by a doctor. However, there comes a time when that line between use for help and use for pleasure or survival become crossed. If you find that you or a loved one can not function without it or have become so dependent on it that they start to feel withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking it, you may need to seek help.
