Benzodiazepine overdose can be life-threatening, and immediate medical attention is necessary. Treatment for benzodiazepine overdose typically involves supportive care in a hospital setting to address the symptoms of the overdose. The specific treatment depends on the severity of the overdose and the symptoms the individual is experiencing.

In a hospital setting, the medical team may use medications to help manage the symptoms of the overdose, such as flumazenil, which is a benzodiazepine receptor antagonist that can help reverse the effects of the overdose. The individual may also receive respiratory support, such as oxygen therapy or mechanical ventilation, if needed.

In addition to supportive care, psychological support and addiction treatment may be necessary for individuals who have experienced a benzodiazepine overdose. It is important to seek medical attention immediately if you or someone you know has overdosed on benzodiazepines.
