I have been on 1.25 mil of alprazolam divided into 4 times a day for over 3 years, for GAD's I am turning 62 this year and worried about my brain as I am getting more forgetful and foggy. I have cut down to just 1 mil for about 3 weeks... so far so good. I get non- epileptic seizures which Dr. feels is caused by panic attacks or the anxiety.

I am able to use antidepressants due to the many side effects they cause me, seizures being one of them. I just wondered at what age will they get better? Is there a better treatment? I is very scary for me as you read a lot about problems with benzo's and older people.
