Il caso di Beatrice ovvero “svezzarsi dal misuso inveterato di benzodiazepine senza ricovero”

21 December 2021


The withdrawal of Beatrice from high loads of “lormetazepam oral solution”, a drug which is largely overprescribed by Italian Doctors who are often unaware of its dangerous addiction potential, as an outpatient was allowed thanks to an intensive and comprehensive care in a private specialized setting. The gold standard of the treatment of lormetazepam very high dose misuse is the detoxification in a specialized Medical ward, better if a flumazenil protocol is administered. In this case on the contrary we realized a very slow tapering of Beatrice‘s everyday intake of very high doses of lormetazepam out of the Hospital. An Addiction Specialist and a Psychotherapist delivered a keen clinical control together with a sharp phone care and such combined treatment was effective, so that Beatrice achieved an improvement of the quality of her life while getting off her 8 years long “lormetazepam nightmare”.
