Is memory loss or cognitive impairment permanent on benzo ?

Recommended Posts

Is cognitive impairment or memory loss permanent even if u stop benzo ? I've been taking a benzo since 2.5 years. Does it cause permanent brain damage since my forgetfulness has gotten worse lately.

I've been taking a benzo for 6 years, and it has not caused cognitive impairment or memory loss for me.

I can't speak to it going away (or not) because I have been taking one roughly since 2008.  I haven't had any cognitive problems during that time.  Are you sure that it's the benzo?  That wouldn't be my first guess.  (That said, I'm having some side effect issues that wouldn't be expected either.)
