Benzodiazepines have an anaesthetic effect. This makes you sleep better and reduces feelings of anxiety, stress and worry.
Every medication has side effects. With prolonged and regular use, one may suffer from unpleasant side effects. After a few weeks people become addicted to benzodiazepines.
Sleep-inducing drugs and sedatives are subject to a number of laws. They may only be bought at the pharmacy on doctor’s prescription.
