Hi C.C,

Sodium benzoate is usually used with caffeine (controvesially) to treat patients who have taken an overdose of what they call CNS (Central nervous system) depressant drugs. This includes alcohol and pain killer drugs which put the patient at risk of respiratory failure.

Hope that helps and take care :)
