What are the signs of benzodiazepines addiction?

Although having a calming effect, benzodiazepines are classified as a highly addicting drug which causes addiction due to the abuse. The signs of addiction include weakness, blurred vision, drowsiness, and mood swings. When someone is taking benzodiazepines, it will normally be for anxiety or insomnia, and the initial symptoms can include drowsiness or dizziness. When high dosages of benzodiazepines are consumed, the user will experience confusion, dizziness, blurred vision, weakness, slurred speech, and difficulty breathing. The chronic use of these drugs can lead to a possible overdose, especially when the drugs are mixed with alcohol. Some of the commonly abused benzodiazepines include Ativan, Klonopin, Valium, and Librium. Despite there being well over hundreds of different types of benzodiazepines produced, only some are approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
