> Basically, the answer is no; you can't die on just benzo's. You could get into a temporary coma, yes, but death? Nah. When mixing our little benzo friends with some drugs, though, you could, very well die. Indeed, if you mix high dose benzo's with high dose opiates, you may stop breathing, which isn't very good for your brain, not to mention your heart and other vital organs.

> There IS a way to die on just benzo's, though: when you're really, seriously addicted, you could theoretically die by ditching your littler benzo friends out of the blue and just like that! Really. In this respect, benzo addiction is as bad as alcohol addiction; physically, they are a lot more serious than any opiate withdrawal (including heroin).

Ugh. Now I'm caught between a rock and a hard place about responding again.... Yes, you can overdose and have respiratory depression on any substance that potentially is capable and I'm not going to go list these things.


A temporary coma ?? Its a wonderful thing that a number of people come out of comas, but what has happened to the brain and body whilst in one only the ventilators and a fly on the hospital wall could tell the story.
