How long does prescription drug withdrawl last?

When abruptly stopping the use of a benzodiazepine medication you can expect to experience symptoms of withdrawal within 24 hours. These symptoms of withdrawal will reach a peak within 48 to 72 hours and typically subside within a week. However some people have been known to experience symptoms of benzo withdrawal for weeks, even months after their last dose.

Where can I get help / what can I take?

If you are dependent on a benzodiazepine medication you should contact the prescribing doctor. If you are taking the medication without a prescription contact your primary care doctor. There the severity of your addiction will be uncovered and the best course of treatment will be determined.

You may be able to ween off the benzo medication gradually. Doing so at home wit regular visits to your doctor and an outpatient treatment facility to undergo addictions treatment. However this is not an option for all. Others require the 24-7 medical assistance of an residential treatment facility.

The first stage of treatment within a residential treatment facility is to detox from the benzo medication. To reduce symptoms of withdrawal and control cravings an amphetamine medication may be prescribed if dosage reduction is not a safe option. Various therapy and counseling sessions will help you to work through your psychological dependence to the medication and develop relapse prevention skills.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
