Benzodiazepines and Fear of Flying

Benzodiazepines (e.g. Diazepam) are drugs which have historically been used for a wide range of conditions including alcohol withdrawal, anxiety, seizures, muscle spasms, psychiatric disorders and sleep disturbance.

Drugs of this kind have potential short and long term negative effects and for this reason are no longer widely used for phobias such as frequent flying. Often the most effective, long term option to help can be found by attending a Fear of Flying course, which are run by the major airline companies.
