Article from Verywell Mind by Elizabeth Hartney, PhD.
From the Article:
"Some people develop a more severe addiction to benzodiazepines, especially if they take a higher dose than was originally prescribed. If you ask your physician for a higher dose, he or she may feel it is supportive to prescribe it, even though the risk that you will become addicted increases. Under the circumstances, your physician may believe the most important thing right now is to help you get through the difficult time."
This article explains the risk of getting becoming to benzodiazepines.
