Episode 11: Drug Facts - Sedative-Hypnotics and Anxiolytics - Dr. Christopher Blazes, OHSU

Trapped: Understanding Addiction

Dec 26 2021 • 13 mins

In the final installment of my drug facts series, I discuss sedative-hypnotic and anxiolytic drugs with Dr. Christopher Blazes, Director of the Addiction Psychiatry fellowship at Oregon Health and Science University. Dr. Blazes is triple board-certified in psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and emergency medicine and has published and lectured extensively on benzodiazepine use. In this episode, he reviews the most commonly used drugs in the sedative-hypnotic class of medications, the risks associated with benzodiazepine dependence and addiction, and how patients who have a use disorder are treated.
