Yeah, I shared this with another babbler who was concerned about having to use benzos for anxiety.

I have been skeptical about the link (insofar as anxiety is a significant independent risk factor for dementia). Because such studies are not randomized, there are methodological limitations in trying to gage / adjust for anxiety severity. Also, antidepressants may (independently) reduce the risk of Alzheimers, so trying to make direct comparisons between patients treated with benzos vs antidepressants may not be valid.
