    • Abstract:
      While benzodiazepines possess many positive attributes for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal, they are not ideal drugs. The occurrence of toxic effects is not infrequent, and unless recognized promptly, toxicity may significantly impact treatment and length of stay. Use of shorter acting benzodiazepines may result in seizure activity under certain conditions of withdrawal.
