Clinical guidelines below;
Benzodiazepines are indicated for the short-term relief (two to four weeks only) of anxiety that is severe, disabling, or causing the patient unacceptable distress, occurring alone or in association with insomnia or short-term psychosomatic, organic, or psychotic illness.
The use of benzodiazepines to treat short-term ‘mild’ anxiety is inappropriate.
Benzodiazepines should be used to treat insomnia only when it is severe, disabling, or causing the patient extreme distress.
