Millions of people have prescriptions for benzos. Unfortunately, though, just because someone has a prescription to a medication that doesn’t free them from the addictive properties of that medication. If you have become addicted to this type of drug, whether after getting a prescription for it or using it on your own, our team here at Harmony Healing Center NJ is here to help you. We have benzo addiction treatment programs that you can start right away.
Benzo Misuse Side Effects
There are almost always possible side effects of taking medications. However, when someone misuses a drug, the side effects may be more severe. Some of the most common benzo misuse side effects include:
- Slurred speech
- Blurry vision
- Disturbing dreams
- Dozing in and out
If you or someone you know is misusing this drug, now is the time to get treatment. The longer you wait, the more likely you are to experience these issues. In addition, the more times a person misuses benzos, the higher their chances of overdosing on them. The main reason for this is because people often take more of the drug to try to achieve desired effects.
Symptoms of Withdrawal from Benzos
If you do have an addiction to benzos, you are likely going to have withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking them. The good news is that here at Harmony Healing Center NJ, we can provide you with treatment to help ease the withdrawal process. With this being said, some withdrawal symptoms you might experience include:
- Sensory distortion
- Muscle aches and spasms
- Loss of appetite
- Increased heartbeat
- Suicidal thoughts
- Delirium tremens
Some of these symptoms can be severe or even life-threatening which is why we highly recommended detoxing in a professional facility. Doing so gives you medical support throughout the withdrawal process. In addition, after detoxing, you can head into a professional benzo addiction treatment program.
If you would like to get more information on the benzo withdrawal process, don’t hesitate to reach out to us here at Harmony Healing Center today. We can discuss this process with you and talk to you about which treatments can help you to overcome your addiction.
