Serax Withdrawal and Detox
Tolerance refers to the need to take higher doses of a medication or drug to get the same effect. People can develop a tolerance for benzos relatively quickly. This is why these medications shouldn’t be used for more than a few weeks. Once someone has a Serax tolerance, they’re also likely to have a physical reliance.

In severe cases, benzodiazepine discontinuance can have very dangerous or deadly symptoms such as hallucinations, psychosis or seizures. When discussing benzodiazepine and Serax discontinuance, long-term use is defined as having used these drugs daily for at least three months. Many Serax and benzo discontinuance symptoms are described as rebound side effects. This means the symptoms the drug was used to treat can occur and be even more severe than they were previously, such as insomnia and anxiety. Benzodiazepine discontinuance is considered more severe in many cases even than opioid discontinuance. Also, important to note is that benzo discontinuance symptoms can be delayed, especially with a drug like Serax. It can take weeks for discontinuance symptoms to occur, as opposed to hours with other drug classes.
