A Time and a Place for Everything
Now, to be clear, I’m not saying that benzodiazepine should never be used. I’m sure that there are medically appropriate times for it to be prescribed. As I said before, this is really up to you and your doctor to decide.
However, like chronic pain, I have to believe that many of us could benefit from lifestyle changes instead of medication. The only advice that I have is to have a comprehensive discussion with your doctor about your sleep. Before you do, be sure to read our articles on improving your sleep. I hope that they give you plenty to discuss!
