Benzos: Hoping you're not taking 2 benzodiazepines at once, but none should be stopped suddenly as withdrawal may result. Also, you may still have tolerance for some time after changes are made, even though this would decrease over time with decreased benzo dosing. Please work with your doctor in any changes to your medications.

In part: Partially, probably yes, it s about the same GABA receptors. Please try not use more than prescribed, and consider less addictive alternatives whenever possible. Don t stop high dose benzodiazepines abruptly. Consult your dr. Good luck.
