Compared to most other substances, benzodiazepine withdrawal is not very intense. However, it can still be unpleasant and addiction treatment should still be sought out.
One dangerous symptom of benzo withdrawal is seizures. Those who are prone to seizures, and have taken benzos to help prevent them, should be very careful during the withdraw period. Because the brain relies on benzos to help prevent them, seizures become more likely. It is highly recommended anyone going through benzo withdrawal seeks a medically-supervised treatment program.
