Drug Alert: Diazepam and benzodiazepines

Posted on:

Samples of blue pills bought in Warwickshire recently have been tested and confirmed as Bromazolam.

Bromazolam (synthetic benzodiazepine) is often mis-sold as diazepam or benzodiazepines (benzos).

It produces strong sedative or sleep-inducing effects. There is a substantial risk of overdose as a result.

Other effects can include:

  • feeling confused
  • feeling highly agitated
  • drowsiness and reduced consciousness
  • loss of coordination
  • memory loss and blackouts

If someone overdoses, you should call 999 immediately. You can find out more about benzodiazepines and how to stay safe on our website:
