In My Experience...

SSRI withdrawal is easily managed. Benzodiazepines induce physical dependence and a degree of tolerance, although some of the anti-anxiety effect stays forever. They clearly worsen memory, but so does depression and anxiety so it can be complicated. I have taken them on and off for over a decade. My good friend has taken klonopin specifically for 10 years. He swears by it, and believes he would be dead without it. At the same time he is in a lot of emotional pain, his memory is terrible, and he still seems highly anxious to me despite having his brain a bit foggy. I didn't know him before hand though and says he was 10 times worse!

I think they are like all medicines. Some good and some bad effects.
