In the last year there have been several studies/stories about the risks associated with benzodiazepine abuse. And while benzodiazepines have been prescribed for decades to treat anxiety and seizure disorders, the possible threat of overusing them is real and with that comes dependency, overdose and the potentiality of death. Did you know that since 2010, there have been 6,507 US drug overdose deaths that involved benzodizepines? Because of this rising number, FRN created an infographic to help familiarize those about benzodiazepines but most importantly help create awareness regarding the possible addiction with benzodiazepines.
