    Xanax and elderly


    As geriatricians and providers who work with older adults, many of whom are frail, we carry amongst our mantras the avoidance of benzodiazepines (xanax, halcion, ativan, valium to name a handful). Since the inception of the Beers Criteria on Potentially Inappropriate Medications for older adults, benzodiazepines have maintained their steady presence. (see post: Sadly, I see in my geriatrics practice that benzodiazepines also remain a common prescription for older adults in the community to treat everything from anxiety to insomnia, muscle aches and pain to fear of flying. The patient alluded to in the previous geripal post above who was on valium, halcion, ativan, and doxepin was only one of the MANY patients I encounter in my primary care and consult practice. While her combination of prescriptions was horrifying, I often feel equally depressed and frustrated when I see new patients who come to me with just one benzodiazepine. It is not uncommon that I have new patients who have been prescribed two: valium and restoril, ativan and clonazepam, ativan and restoril etc. Just this week I met two new patients who were both on benzodiazepines. One was a 90 year old woman who was prescribed xanax a few years ago to help her with longstanding anxiety which has worsened as she has aged.

    At first, the pills helped her feel so much better. Jessica Falstein, an artist living in the East Village in Manhattan, learned she had an anxiety disorder in 1992. It led to panic attacks, a racing pulse, sleeplessness. And it helped me sleep, which I was desperate for.”After several months, however, the horrible symptoms returned. “Whenever there was too much stress, the anxiety would become almost intolerable, like acid in the veins,” she recalled. “My body became accustomed to half a milligram, and the drug stopped working,” she said. And then two.” Her doctor kept increasing the dosage and added Ativan to the mix. When a psychopharmacologist prescribed the drug Klonopin, everything brightened. Now 67, with her health and stamina in decline, Ms. Falstein has been diligently working to wean herself from both medications, part of the class called benzodiazepines that is widely prescribed for insomnia and anxiety.
