It is an sort of like a benzo. Structurally it is not the same or close (according to most laws) to a Benzodiazepine however it works on the same (GABA) receptors and in the same way. It is used for anxiety mainly but has recreational value for people who are into that sort of thing. You cannot really overdose on it (LD50 4300 mg/per kg body weight). However since it is sedative you can black out on it. Nothing that will really outright kill you unless you do something stupid while on it, but that last part really goes for most things.
