American Psychiatric Association Task Force on Benzodiazepine Dependency. (1990) Benzodiazepine dependence, toxicity, and abuse: a task force report of the American Psychiatric Association. Washington, D.C.: American Psychiatric Association .

In recent years, patients, lay publications, and consumer groups have expressed concern about whether benzodiazepines are overprescribed. Psychiatrists have raised questions about the potential for these medications-especially some of the newer, high-potency, short half-life compounds-to produce serious side effects as well as to induce drug dependence.

"Benzodiazepine Dependence, Toxicity, and Abuse" provides clinicians with a review of the available information on the potential hazards of benzodiazepine treatment and offers suggestions for the rational prescription of these medications
