|Abstract:||Data on benzodiazepine use in mood disorders are still limited, especially among seniors. A cross-sectional review of psychotropic prescriptions in 948 outpatients with mood disorders (405 male; mean ± SD age, 52 ± 17 years; age range, 16– 91 years) was conducted in Japan.

The frequent use of benzodiazepines is a cause for concern because they are not preferred treatment, given their well-known adverse effects especially in the elderly.|
