In a nutshell: This article drew research from two different studies to compare whether long-acting benzodiazepines (LBs) create a higher risk of falls in the elderly than short-acting benzodiazepines (SBs). It found that SBs do not lower the risk of falls any more than LBs, and recommends strongly discouraging the use of both in the elderly.
