the benzodiazepine medical disaster

This is for anyone prescribing or taking benzodiazepines—Xanax, Klonopin, Valium, Onfi, Sobril, etc. Beware of their long list of withdrawal side effects and dangers of their use, including possible increased risk of developing Alzheimer's.

For help in coming off of them, please refer to The Ashton Manual.

I wonder if this is a cumulative lifetime risk or related to a short term use? The article talks about older people. Will need to look into this further. Nothing about epilepsy is ever easy....
