Is Your Medicine a Benzodiazepine?
Benzodiazepines–and the chemically distinct, but very similar acting, ‘z-drugs’–are prescribed most commonly to treat anxiety and insomnia. Benzodiazepines are also used spil muscle relaxants, pre-meds, and anticonvulsants. Some of the more common ‘benzos’ and z-drugs include: diazepam (Valium*), lorazepam (Ativan*), clonazepam (Klonopin*, Rivotril*), chlordiazepoxide (Librium*), alprazolam (Xanax*), temazepam (Restoril*), and zolpidem** (Ambien*).
If your medicine does not emerge ter the above list, and you are unassured if your medicine is a benzodiazepine (or z-drug), please check our more exhaustive list of benzodiazpines.
