Prescribing Benzodiazepines Policy
This practice does not prescribe tablets for sleeping or anxiety such as Diazepam, other Benzodiazepines or Zopiclone for longer than two weeks. If you are currently taking one of these tablets you will have a review and be started on a reducing regime. Occasionally these medications are used for longer periods, for example in end of life care or severe mental illness. These are agreed on an individual basis and subject to regular review.
