Current Therapeutic Strategies for the Management of Benzodiazepine (BZD) Withdrawal Syndrome: A Review.

Benzodiazepines are commonly prescribed drugs for numerous indications such as epilepsy, anti-anxiety, sleep aids, sedatives, and hypnotics. Although the well-tolerated effects of benzodiazepine are seen in many clinical instances, the severity of side effects reduces its quantifiable use. Benzodiazepines, which are medically useful but theoretically unsafe, are frequently recommended by medical practitioners for psychotic patients but have misuse and dependence liabilities. It is impelled as a debateable topic globally about which no one talks. These drugs are also known as silent killers because abruptly stopping them can result in tremors, muscle spasticity, and life-frightening seizures. These drugs are beneficial as well as risky. Nonclinical treatment is simple and well suited and provides support for patients suffering from side effects generated by benzodiazepine withdrawal. This review mainly focuses on antipsychotic drugs and their mechanisms, mortality, withdrawal, abuse, and management via clinical and nonclinical therapies.
