Diazepam (Valium) Ascert
Long-term use can result in users suffering from depression. There is also a significant risk of overdose if benzodiazepines are mixed with other depressant drugs (e.g. heroin or alcohol). Some will not dissolve easily and there can be an increased risk of injection site injuries such as abscesses. Tolerance develops fairly rapidly and withdrawal from benzodiazepines should only be done under medical supervision as severe benzodiazepine withdrawal can be dangerous/fatal. LAW:. If these drugs are used over an extended period (several months) they cease to be effective at promoting sleep and reducing anxiety and may then cause insomnia, anxiety, tremors and even convulsions. If benzodiazepines are injected, the tablets are usually crushed first and then made into a solution.
Some people began injecting Temazepam as a substitute for Heroin. Usually oral use, sometimes injected. They are prescribed to twice as many women as men. Benzodiazepines usually come as a tablet or capsule that is swallowed. Street use has grown with people taking tablets sometimes in combination with other drugs. They are the most commonly prescribed drugs and include well-known names such as Valium, Ativan and Temazepam.
