Halcion Abuse and Addiction

A Dangerous and Addictive Sleep Medication

Halcion is the brand-name form of triazolam. It is an oral tablet used to treat insomnia and sleep disorder. Triazolam is a benzodiazepine and carries a high potential for abuse and misuse. It’s not uncommon for abusers to develop tolerance in as little as two weeks if misuse persists. Halcion comes in quarter-milligram dosages and should only be used under the supervision of an experienced and qualified medical professional. Using Halcion on a regular basis for sleep can be an express route to addiction and dependency. If you or a loved one is struggling with Halcion abuse, call RU Encore to start the recovery process.
