It seems that benzodiazepines only treat
anxiety while the patient is taking them, but my impression
from the literature is that antidepressants produce some
cumulative changes in the brain if patients comply with
treatment [Malberg JE. J Psychiatry Neurosci 2004;29:
]. Is it the case that benzodiazepines do not make
any permanent changes in anxiety? Can anxiety disorders
be cured by benzodiazepines?
