Benzodiazepines & appetite[edit]

All journals articles say Benzodiazepines increases appetite but patients sites say opposite which one is correct? example: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195666380800055

Removed review[edit]

@JzG: What's the diff where the author added his own paper? Anyone else have thoughts on the merit of including this review? Looks like everything is still cited after it is removed. Sizeofint (talk) 00:54, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Ah, just saw the discussion on your talk page. Found the diff. Sizeofint (talk) 01:29, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia recommendations[edit]

I am of the opinion that these sorts of specific recommendations from a specific regulatory body in one specific country might be better placed elsewhere as opposed to their current location in the general introductory paragraph of the Medical Uses section. That said, these recommendations are based upon well-established contraindications which are either noticeably absent or given just a scant sentence or two in the current Contraindications section of the article. As such, I recommend that the prescribing recommendations being made by the CPSBC be moved to a new section, perhaps a new subsection under Society and Culture, something along the lines of a 'Recommendations and Best Practices' sort of thing where data such as this from various regional jurisdictions around the globe could be collected. Furthermore, the contraindications on which these recommendations were based should be more clearly detailed in the Contraindications section, perhaps being given full subsection status themselves, alongside the current two which are already there (Pregnancy and Elderly). My understanding of the CPSBC recommendations is that they are primarily motivated by two areas of contraindication, namely taking benzos in concert with other central nervous system depressants such as opioids, barbiturates, alcohol, etc., and prescribing them to patients who have preexisting problems with addiction. Neither of these is very well detailed in the existing article, both are major areas of contraindication with benzodiazepines and both have been exhaustively treated in a veritable wealth of highly credible, peer-reviewed research which is readily available to anyone with an internet connection or a library card.

Dear contributors to scientific articles[edit]

Please try to write some part of your bloody articles so that people not familiar with scientific nomenclature can understand the subject and integrate what they read into their framework for knowledge and understanding. In other words, USE SIMPLE LANGUAGE FOR MEDIAN READERS. I've just done this with one sentence in the lead: "In common, non-technical language, they are known as minor tranquilizers." Please follow suit. Tapered (talk) 00:50, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
