Benzodiazepines are a group of medications designed to slow down or depress the central nervous system. Benzodiazepines are used as sedatives, for insomnia, to treat anxiety and seizure disorders. The benzodiazepine medication binds to GABA receptors in the brain. Over time, people can become dependent on benzodiazepines mentally and physically. Benzodiazepines include Valium (diazepam), Ativan (Lorazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), and Klonopin (clonazepam).
Benzodiazepines can cause some of the following side effects:
Impaired cognitive function
Rapid or slow pulse
Benzodiazepine cessation should be done under a physician’s care as stopping them abruptly without a plan can put someone into seizures which can be life threatening.
IV NAD+ therapy can help ease the withdrawal symptoms while coming off benzodiazepines. NAD+ provides the necessary coenzyme for DNA and cellular repair. NAD+ along with our Fast Vitamin IV push, will help restore your energy and repair the brain and help balance neurotransmitter activity.
