Too often it has been evident that a person has knowingly or unknowingly, deliberately or unintentionally opted to continue with the medication way after both the need as well as the purpose have been taken care of. Unfortunately, unknown to such individuals, this kind of dependency almost always takes them to the brink of destruction both their own as well as of the people around them. More often than not, the individual needs to assess the need for the drug as well as the symptoms. In the slightest, that the symptoms abate, it is always advisable to stop taking such a drug that carries the potential to turn an individual into a dependent (or worse) unless prescribed otherwise. This is not only to imbibe awareness within, but also to prevent the possibility of overdosing, which with certain drugs can actually have severe adverse effects, more than that, to have a check to ensure that dependency does not creep in. This is something that is applicable on a serious note especially when on benzos, irrespective whether they are short acting ones or long acting ones. Always ask yourself this one question in case you seem to continue on such a drug for more than the prescribed duration and if the answer even remotely appears in the vicinity of an affirmative, immediately opt for Benzodiazepine Detox.
Symptoms that require the need to detox
Although benzo over dosing most commonly does not have fatal outcomes unless mixed with other more potent drugs or alcohol, care should be taken that these drugs are not used beyond the prescribed dosage and the prescribed timelines (which typically range between 2 to 4 weeks). Typical symptoms that can be actually considered as withdrawal symptoms are difficulty falling asleep, feeling depressive and increased sweating.Unfortunately, with benzos, because there is no indicator or factor that determines if a person may have the potential to get addicted or not, general factors are also considered when it comes to diagnosing and taking corrective steps, some of them are forging of prescriptions, increasing desire to stay aloof, visiting different doctors so as to obtain more number of prescriptions, sudden increase in anxiety, increased levels of confusion, unwarranted and sudden hostility, mood swings etc. these are some symptoms that are warning signals that unless Benzodiazepine Detox is not initiated, things may pretty quickly go out of hand so much so that in the long run the person might even be highly prone to suicidal thoughts and tendencies with an increased need for drugs more often to keep the withdrawal symptoms at bay. Hence, it is always advisable to initiate control mode at the earliest. Like they say, a stitch in time, indeed saves nine.
