I don't know if I fully agree with the 'link'. People who use benzos typically have more severe anxiety, which itself is linked to cognitive decline. I don't know if (or how they would) fully adjust for this.

I took some clonazepam last night because I've been having a few bad nights of insomnia. What's worse, the benzo or the insomnia? Chronic insomnia is linked to a whole host of problems from Parkinson's to Alzheimer's.

They like to criticize meds like this, but the do diddly squat to help patients find effective alternatives (the operative word being, effective). Some studies link SSRIs to Alzheimer's so pick your poison.

I use magnesium which lowers the effective dose of benzo needed (at least for me). Magnesium is also (purportedly) neuroprotective.
