Benzodiazepine withdrawal among chronic daytime users in general practice

  • Mark Ashworth (a1) and Michael King (a2)
Extract

Withdrawal of chronic day-time users from benzodiazepines is rarely attempted in general practice because patients are considered more dependent on their medication than analogous night-time users. Our aim was to evaluate two forms of brief intervention by general practitioners to reduce intake of benzodiazepines in chronic day-time users. A subsidiary aim was the development of a booklet to help patients with benzodiazepine withdrawal.
