Re: Which benzo has the least cognitive side effects?

On paper, some of the BZDs are known for having more potent amnestic effects, e.g., lorazepam.

I've tried almost all of them, and I found Tranxene (clorazepate) -- took for a week -- to be very "clean". I returned to clonazepam (been on for years now), however, which I find to have minimal cognitive issues. Everything is dose- and tolerance-dependent, though, of course.

Things also change over time. I took lorazepam for many years with great results -- more energy and less fog -- but then when I retried it in late 2017, I became quite intoxicated at work and barely remembered the day.

Since YMMV, I think a key point to highlight is that anxiety itself can be quite cognitively impairing; whichever agent relieves your symptoms the best may turn out to be the most clarifying and cause the least disruption.

Best of luck to you, and of course let us know what happens!
