In brief: 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.
