Study Title:

Dangers of rising benzo prescriptions raise alarms of next drug crisis.

Study Abstract

When Christy Huff developed a painful eye problem that led to insomnia, her doctor had a common solution— Xanax. She took the medication as directed.
One pill at night offered her some relief, but soon she began to experience anxiety, daytime terrors and tremors. Then, Huff had a startling realization. When she was off the Xanax she was going through withdrawal. And when she was on it "all of that just melted away," she said.


In just three weeks, her body was dependent on Xanax.
