Abstract

Benzodiazepines are widely prescribed and have anxiolytic, sedative and hypnotic activity. They pushed the barbituranes out thehealth market because of relatively low toxicity and high efficacy. However, used chronically, can lead to addiction and caution must be used when prescribing benzodiazepines. The article presents current problems of benzodiazepines abuse risk, dependence and treatment.
