Doral Abuse

Suggestions for Dealing With Doral Abuse

Despite their many beneficial effects, benzodiazepines have the potential for abuse and should be used only as prescribed. During the first few days of taking Doral, a person usually feels sleepy and uncoordinated, but as the body becomes accustomed to the effects of the drug, these feelings begin to disappear. If these drugs are used long-term, the body will develop a tolerance for them, and larger doses will be needed to achieve the same initial effects. Continued use can lead to physical dependence and withdrawal when the medication is reduced or stopped.
 
Because Doral works by slowing down the brain's activity, when an individual stops taking it, the brain's activity can rebound and race out of control, potentially leading to seizures and other harmful consequences. Therefore, someone who is thinking about stopping Doral therapy or who is experiencing withdrawal from Doral should speak with a healthcare provider or seek medical treatment.
