Benzodiazepines such as Ativan, Xanax and Klonopin are commonly prescribed to anxiety patients, but ironically, they can induce DP/DR in people, especially after long-term use. This is the case even if you always take your medication exactly as prescribed and keep a consistent dose. In fact, the most intense period of derealization I’ve ever felt was during the months when I was prescribed Klonopin twice a day.

Additionally, stopping benzodiazepine use is also known to cause depersonalization and derealization. This can last even after other withdrawal symptoms have subsided.

Therefore, anxiety sufferers who experience DP/DR should consider whether these drugs may do more harm than good for them, and explore other medication-free coping strategies.
