Summary of "Trends in and correlates of tranquilizer misuse among adults who misuse opioids in the United States, 2002-2014."

Almost a third of opioid overdose deaths also involve benzodiazepines, but few representative studies have examined misuse of benzodiazepines and other tranquilizers by adults who misuse opioids. This study estimated the prevalence and frequency of tranquilizer misuse among adults who misuse opioids and examined characteristics associated with tranquilizer misuse.
