One of the most common and often-prescribed drug classes is that of benzodiazepines. In this podcast episode we’re talking about:

- Abuse and tolerance
- Guidelines for safe administration
- Patient teaching
Plus, I share my completely goofy but totally effective method for remembering all the side effects.
