I'd have to see more than one study suggesting that long term benzo use causes depression, and that it wasn't associated with something like a nutrient deficiancy, and that it wasn't reversable upon withdrawl.

As for the Nardil comment, I think it is the way the drug affects sleep cycles not the drug itself. Any drug which dramatically reduced REM sleep in such a way would be sure to have an effect on learning and memory.

Anyhow, its also worth questioning if benzos are just creating temprorary depression or long term depression after the drug is withdrawn. The former is not a big deal.

Also it would be worth studying which benzos were supposed to have lead to depression, because depressive reactions are not always a class effect.
