Alzheimer's linked to Benzodiazepines use
« on: September 10, 2014, 12:41:28 PM »
Lots of articles today about a study showing benzodiazepines increase risk of developing Alzheimer's by as much as 51%

This isn't hiv related but many of us take xanax or klonopin and should be aware of this.

I've been on klonnie for a dozen years so I'm just long-gone. But at the rate I'm going I won't make it to 60 anyway.

I've been on xanax from diagnosis of hiv until about ten months ago (few years).  Stopped, not because of this, and have been trying to deal with the anxiety through other methods.  So far so..ok

Anxiety sucks.  I'm still convinced hiv does something (chemically or physiologically) to cause anxiety.  MF'er

I am glad they pointed out people with Alzheimer's may have needed those meds, and the meds may have nothing to do with it.

Yeah.  Correlation does not equal causation.
