TREATING SEDATIVE/HYPNOTIC ADDICTION
Dependence on sedatives, hypnotics and tranquilizers can make recovery from an addiction to these drugs very challenging. Withdrawal symptoms like insomnia, anxiety, nausea, vomiting and even high fevers and seizures can be dangerous to a recovering addict’s health. Detoxing from these drugs should be medically monitored, often with the use of other prescription medications that are intended to make withdrawal less harmful. In many cases, a sedative or hypnotic was initially prescribed to counteract an existing mental health disorder — these situations require an alternative medication or more intensive therapy to manage this along with withdrawal symptoms.
