enzodiazepines belong to the group of medicines called central nervous system (CNS) depressants (medicines that slow down the nervous system). Some benzodiazepines are used to relieve anxiety.

However, if used regularly (for example, every day) for insomnia, they usually are not effective for more than a few weeks. Benzodiazepines may be habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence), especially when taken for a long time or in high doses.

Also tell your health care professional if you are allergic to any other substances, such as foods, preservatives, or dyes. Pregnancy — too much use of a benzodiazepine during pregnancy may cause the baby to become dependent on the medicine. This may lead to withdrawal side effects after birth.

    lkffakyh98lehcoijjgpitjtphuityklDecember 3, 2011 But a natural trtmeaent is indicated .Social anxiety is natural especially when others are allowed to dictate a great deal, if not all, aspects of our lives.Pharmacology is not. Doctor it hurts when I do this. (Dr.'s response) Don't do that. There is a measure of truth in that response.This is probably a trust issue. Many trust in meds instead of learning personal techniques in mastering such difficulties.I'm not saying meds don't have their place, in extreme cases.Temporarily.A Doctor will be sure to prescribe for you, if you come to their office with a pharmaceutical grocery list.Nothing beats personally mastering a social problem.You get to give yourself the credit, instead of trusting everyone else to know what is best for you.Their failure (those who YOU allow to exert the most influential power, or think THEY know what is best for you) might possibly be what has been making you so anxious.Assume some control.
