I became addicted to diazepam just by taking one pill nightly for sleep. You could avoid becoming addicted to benzodiazapines by taking no more than 2
pills a week; but this would leave you with anxious nights for the rest of the week.
Rather than taking the chance of becoming addicted , why don't you ask your doctor for Trazadone. It is not habit-forming and was once used for anxiety; however, doctors found that it caused sleepiness. Now it is mostly prescribed to be used nightly. I have been taking 1/2 of a pill nightly and find that it allows me to sleep peacefully even when I'm worried about something. There are many posts about it on this Board. It's worth a try!
