Is Suboxone A Benzodiazepine
How can I comfortably get off of oxycodone? Dose isn't high enough to warrant suboxone. Past benzodiazepine dependencey, so I won't use those either.
Not a good idea: Not sure why you would want to do this. Both are CNS depressants so would slow reaction time and be very sedating. Suboxone is used to detox from opiates and benzos are also addictive. If you have a problem with addiction it would not be advisable to take benzos. There are many alternatives for treatment of anxiety and depression. Talk to your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely: Benzo's are more likely to be associated with hallucinations, especially in overdoses or during drug withdrawal. Many report nightmares or vivid dreams while taking benzo's. Only one mention of benzo's used to treat auditory hallucinations in schizophrenic pt concluded effect resulted from muscle relaxing & anxiolytic effects.
Anxiety, generally: Benzodiazepines are a class of medications known as anxiolytics meaning anti-anxiety. Many who take benzos do so chronically for anxiety disorders that are long-standing. Others take benzos as needed to sleep or when anxiety suddenly becomes overwhelming. As for how to have this class of medication prescribed, I recommend an open conversation with your doctor.
In a nutshell: Any dose of benzodiazepines beyond that prescribed, would be too big. Your doctor knows about your liver functioning, other medications or substances you're using, other illnesses you might have, etc -- and can recommend the best dose for your needs.See 2 more doctor answers
There isn't a: Specific best benzodiazapine for anxiety. Each person responds differently to different benzodizapines. The best one for you may be selected by factors like half life, side effect profile and which one you respond to the best. Take care.
Stop Taking/Testing: The way to stop testing positive for beenzodiazepines is either to stop taking them altogether or to to stop taking the drug test. Most benzos have detection periods of days to weeks in the blood or urine.
Not take them??: Not sure what you mean by "allergy." true allergy - hives, itching, tongue and lips swelling, respiratory problems, wheezing etc. Are very unusual as a reaction to benzodiazepines. Other reactions - so-called "paradoxical" reactions are not allergies. They are just an exaggerated disinhibition that can result in people getting agitated after benzos, esp with alcohol.
Addiction: Benzos are schedule II drugs because of their high rate of becoming habit forming and addictive.
