Benzos and seniors
@sears unsteadiness is listed as a side effect of benzodiazepine, especially for elderly patients. Below is a link of a reputable site. I'm wondering if you have discussed this issue with your provider or pharmacist?

Yes I have discussed this with my doctor. He feels sure my unsteadiness and coordination is benzo related. I’m in the process of tapering. My doctor believes in very slooooow tapers. I hate the unsteadiness and was just wandering how these meds affected others on this site.
