Psychiatry & Psychology--General/stuff


in  our  previous-mail you stated the combition of xanax and remeron presents no problem.i always use 2 mg of xanax.on occasional i take xanax and lunesta.however i have just read many articles that state long term lunesta causes cognitive effects and dementia.should i stick with the xanax and remeron/or is lunesta and remeron a better fit/thanks

If you read an article that says that Lunestra causes dementia, then it is from a non-scientific publication and you should avoid all articles from that source.  There is absolutely no evidence that any medications cause dementia, so that source is simply lying. I have no idea what you are reading and where you are getting all this false information. My suggestion is that you get information in the future only from a physician. Your resources are obviously nonsense.
