Benzodiazepines are a type of prescription medication most commonly used to treat anxiety disorders and sleep-related issues like insomnia. Some commonly abused brand name benzodiazepines include Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, Librium and Restoril. While most benzodiazepines can be used interchangeably, some are more frequently prescribed for the treatment of specific conditions. For example, Xanax, Valium and Ativan are generally used for the treatment of anxiety disorders, Klonopin is commonly used for the treatment of seizure disorders and Librium is used to treat the more severe symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal.
