What is benzo withdrawal?

Benzodiazepine users start to develop a tolerance to the drug over time. Gradually, your body will urge you to take the drug in larger doses to experience the same effects.

If you stop taking it, you can experience an array of withdrawal symptoms. The best way to beat benzo abuse is to sign up for benzodiazepine withdrawal and detox treatment at a leading addiction treatment center near you.

What are some of the benzo withdrawal symptoms?

The withdrawal symptoms of Benzodiazepines can be physical as well as emotional. Individuals battling severe benzo addiction can experience life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms vary in intensity and often come and go from time to time. The rebound withdrawal symptoms manifest within 72 hours of discontinuing benzo use and last for ten days. Some of the most noticeable benzo withdrawal symptoms include:

  1. Sleep disturbances
  2. Increased tension
  3. Anxiety
  4. Panic attacks
  5. Difficulty concentrating
  6. Excessive sweating
  7. Heart palpitations
  8. Headache
  9. Muscular stiffness or discomfort
  10. Changes in perception

Recovering addicts may also experience cravings, hand tremors, hallucinations, and seizures. It is pivotal you sign up for benzodiazepine treatment and not try recovery on your own to prevent adverse health consequences. If you experience psychosis, suicidal ideation, or anxiety after you quit the drug, contact a benzodiazepines addiction treatment facility at the earliest.

How long do Benzo withdrawal symptoms last?

If you've been abusing shorter-acting benzo, your withdrawal symptoms should begin sooner than that of longer-acting ones. You will most likely experience the first withdrawal signs within 6 – 8 hours for shorter-acting benzodiazepines and 1-2 days for longer-acting Benzos.

The withdrawal symptoms of short-acting benzos like Xanax, Halcion, etc., are more intense. On the other hand, long-acting Benzos like Valium, Klonopin, and Librium cause less severe withdrawal symptoms. While the withdrawal symptoms do not last for 15 – 30 days, the post-acute withdrawal symptoms can come and go for six months or longer.

Importance of benzo detox

Benzo detox is pivotal to reduce the withdrawal symptoms and safely achieve sobriety. The detox process typically involves medications like buspirone and Flumazenil. Benzo users experience a broad range of physical and mental withdrawal symptoms as the drugs and toxins leave their bodies. Buspirone alleviates anxiety and other psychological withdrawal symptoms and it may take 2-3 weeks to start working, effectively mitigating the emotional effects.

On the other hand, Flumazenil blocks the effects of benzodiazepines by attaching to the same pleasure centers in the brain as benzos. It also helps force the benzodiazepines out of your body. If you suffer from benzodiazepine abuse, sign up for benzo detox at a leading rehab for a comprehensive, safe, and successful recovery from your behavioral disorder.
