Please don't let your mom take the xanax. It's highly addictive and will cause tolerance and to come off takes a very long painful tappering program. All the benozdiazepine drugs are highly addictive. Please reasearch the drug more. See www.ashtonbenzomanual.com
My Grandma age of 72 has been taking Valium on and off for the past 20 years, and that seems to work pretty good for her, its a low dose..I believe it is 2mgs twice daily
I know accumulation could possibly cause a problem, but It seems like valium is always the choice Benzodiazapine for the elderly from where Im from.
What do you think about Valium and the elderly, Ryan?
