Opiates are so named because they are constituents or derivatives of constituents found in opium, which is processed from the latex sap of the opium poppy, Papaver Somni…ferum. The major biologically active opiates found in opium are morphine, codeine, thebaine and papaverine. Synthetic opioids such as heroin and hydrocodone are derived from these substances, especially morphine and codeine. Noscapine, narceine and approximately 25 other alkaloids are also present in opium, but have little to no effect on the human central nervous system, and are not usually considered to be opiates. Opium is mostly produced in Asia. The benzodiazepines (pronounced [ˌbɛnzəʊdaɪˈæzəˌpiːn], often abbreviated to "benzos") are a class of psychoactive drugs with varying hypnotic, sedative, anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant and amnesic properties, which are mediated by slowing down the central nervous system. Benzodiazepines are useful in treating anxiety, insomnia, agitation, seizures, and muscle spasms, as well as alcohol withdrawal. They can also be used before certain medical procedures such as endoscopies or dental work where tension and anxiety are present, and prior to some unpleasant medical procedures in order to induce sedation and amnesia for the procedure. Another use is to counteract anxiety-related symptoms upon initial use of SSRIs and other antidepressants, or as an adjunctive treatment. Recreational stimulant users often use benzodiazepines as a means of "coming down" (see: Drug abuse). Benzodiazepines are also used to treat the panic that can be caused by hallucinogen intoxication.
Benzo is a slang term for Benzodiazopine but can also be used to refer to Benzodiazopine compounds and derivatives
Yes it is. It wont give you the same feeling as xanax but it is a benzo and will show up in a drug test as a benzo.. From where i can order Ambien???
Benzos refer to a class and drugs called benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are central nervous system depressants. Examples of benzodiazepines include Xanax (Alprazolam), Valiu…m (Diazepam), Klonopin (Clonazepam), and Ativan (Lorazepam). There are many more benzodiazepines than the stated here, these are the ones that are generally prescribed most in the United States. Benzodiazepines have a variety of uses, anxiety disorders are typically the most common use. These drugs are also life-saving in the event of a seizure emergency such as when one is having status epilepticus. Due to benzodiazepines depressant effects they are you short-term for insomnia, also for muscle spasticity disorders and pain.
Because I'm prescribed lorazepam and clonazepam.
No, Neurontin is an anti-seizure medication that is also used to relieve anxiety, treat insomnia and detox people off drugs. It is not a benzodiazepine.
No, Elavil (amitryptiline) isn't a benzodiazepin. It is a tricyclic antidepressant
no adderall is not a benzo
No. This is a common mistake due to how close it sounds to Xanax. It's actually spelled Zanaflex and it is a muscle relaxant. It acts on a completely different brain receptor.… Also, it is not a controlled substance.
No, its a muscle relaxer. Not a narcotic
No, trazadon is an antidepressant! It works on different receptors and you should definitely consult a doctor before you take it.
Chantix is not a benzodiazapine. It is a medication that partially "binds" to the parts of our brains (the receptors) that really like nicotine. The scientific term for this t…ype of medication is: partial nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist. In the most basic of explanations, the medication fools the brain into thinking that it's already at least partially happy without the drug, nicotine. It is important to note that Chantix is NOT nicotine. It just tells the brain that it doesn't need so much nicotine any more. Over time, people can actually stop using tobacco products to deliver nicotine to the brain. Once that has occurred, they can eventually come off the medication. This process eases the uncomfortable effects of nicotine withdrawal... which all tobacco users know as the most horrible part of quitting.
No, methadone is a synthetic opiod compound. It is a narcotic drug sed therapeuticly to treat heroin and opiate addiction by alleviating withdrawl symptons without inducing an… intoxicated state. It is occasionally used recreationally, albeit dangerously, by those without a tolerance to opiate. It should be noted that opiates are dangerously contraindicated with benzodiazapines and the mixture can lead to cardiac arrest and cessation of or difficulty in breathing. Benzodiazapines are a class of drugs whose basic structure is a bezylated diazapine ring. Some examples are clonzopam, lorazapam, Rohypnal, etc. Their chemical names frequently end in -pram and -pam. They are a sedative/barbituate class of pharmaceuticals, typicall t prescribed for insomnia or anxieties.
