Opioids and benzo: Data has shown that opioids with benzo's increases the risk of death 5 fold. New government regulations have resulted in restricted use of these products. while this has resulted in less prescriptions the overdoes deaths are still rising - this implies that prescriptions were not the cause of overdose deaths.
