ToxTests | Benzodiazephine (BZO) Drug Test Dip Cards

Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs primarily used for treating anxiety, sleep disorders, and alcohol withdrawal.

They are taken orally or sometimes by injection and have a wide range of half-life from 2 to 40 hours. They can generally be detected for 1 to 2 days after Benzodiazepines use. Benzodiazepines are metabolized in the liver. Some Benzodiazepines and their metabolites are excreted in the urine. Their use can result in drowsiness and/or confusion. Benzodiazepines potentiate alcohol and other CNS depressants. Psychological and physical dependence on benzodiazepines can develop if high doses of the drug are given over a prolonged period.

Familiar names include Valium®, Xanax®, Ativan®, Librium®, Halcion®, Versed®.
