Use of benzodiazepines in a Swedish community with a general population of about 20,000 was studied using data from a research registry on prescriptions.
A cohort of all benzodiazepine users in 1976, aged 15-84 years, was identified and followed for 8 years with respect to continued benzodiazepine use.
A strong tendency towards continuous use was observed.
Nearly 70% of the cohort continued use of benzodiazepines during the first follow-up year, 56% used benzodiazepines during the second year as well.
