This means that withdrawal symptoms can start within 5 days to 14 days, but can be delayed for up to 3 weeks (because of the breakdown products). You may need some medical help during this, because withdrawal from benzodiazepines can cause seizures. ...Read more

This is one of the problems with it, especially in older people: it can build up and create longer-lasting sedation & cognitive issues than expected or desired. Tolerance can happen -- habituation, addiction, & withdrawal syndrome too. ...Read more
