While it's true that certain prescription drugs such as opioids are more commonly associated with fatal overdoses, benzodiazepines can still pose serious risks when misused. Benzodiazepines themselves can cause fatal overdose, particularly when combined with other substances like alcohol or opioids. The combination can lead to severe respiratory depression, loss of consciousness, or even death. It's crucial to only use these medications as directed by a healthcare professional and never mix them with other substances without a doctor's approval. Always remember that misuse, abuse or nonmedical use of any prescription medications can lead to serious health risks and can be potentially fatal.
