Question: Can benzos cause twitching?
Answer: Benzodiazepines can cause twitching both as a side effect during their use and during withdrawal stages. In fact, of all the medications that can cause twitches Benzos is about as bad as it gets along with medications used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. If you’re withdrawing you might want to seek professional medical advice as it can be dangerous and a significant health risk to stop using this drug immediately after a period of continual or heavy use. If you are continuing to use the drug for medical reasons talk to your doctor about switching to other medications if the twitching is bothering you enough to interfere with your quality of life.
