Read this article in the Daily Mail regarding the method of action that causes cognitive decline in those using anti anxiety medications.

I did a search for anti anxiety medications and brain damage and found this article on Neurosciencenews.com

I am pretty sure this has been know about for a long time but it is finally coming out into the light for the general public to see and be aware of. As time goes by I am sure more information regarding similar effects from other psychiatric medications will also be brought out into the light and people will become more aware of the hazards all of these medications pose to the patient.
