Driving on Benzos: Is it safe? Is it legal?

Updated: May 22, 2023

Is it safe to drive while taking benzodiazepines? Is it legal? Can benzos impair one’s ability to drive a motor vehicle? If so, which type of benzo has the greatest effect? We will provide some research, stories, and a few answers.

In today’s episode, we look at driving and benzodiazepine use. We also hear a benzo story of success, talk about benzo belly and stomach distension, learn about a few upcoming events, and close out with our moment of peace. I hope you will join us.
