Medically Reviewed Article from Healthline by Tessa Torgeson
From the article:
"The combination of opiates and benzodiazepines has contributed to more than 30 percent of recent overdoses. In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even issued a black-boxTrusted Source warning about the dangers of combining the two drugs. Rather than shed light on these dangers, media coverage often blamed overdoses on heroin laced with fentanyl. It seemed like there was only room for one epidemic in the media."
This article gives a personal account of the dangers of combining opioids and benzodiazepines.
