Surviving Benzodiazepines: A Patient’s and Clinician’s Perspectives!

For more than 4 years, a group of committed doctors, patients, and policy experts have been working to raise awareness about the risk of patients developing BIND (benzodiazepine-induced neurological dysfunction) when benzodiazepines are taken as prescribed for more than 2 – 4 weeks. Carrie Silvernail, RN, and Steve Wright, MD, have comprehensively summarized this risk and the importance of providers communicating it to patients prior to initiation in their journal article:! Thank you for your contribution to the public discourse on this class of medications. ** Artwork by Susan Wright 2022 #benzodiazepine
