Benzodiazepines (also known as ‘minor tranquillisers’) are used to treat anxiety, insomnia, epileptic fits and alcohol withdrawal. They are recommended purely for short-term medicinal relief because prolonged usage can quickly and easily lead to benzodiazepine addiction. These types of prescription drugs are especially dangerous when mixed with other depressants like alcohol.
