Christy Huff, Medical Director of Benzodiazepine Information Coalition, Dies


Dr. Christy Huff was a cardiologist who experienced a benzodiazepine injury first-hand after taking prescribed Xanax for just three weeks in 2015. She had to slowly taper using Valium and experienced a disabling withdrawal over three years, leading her to realize the serious risks and harms of these drugs and the danger of the benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. Dr. Huff became a fierce advocate for better education of doctors regarding benzodiazepines and how to safely taper patients off of them. Dr. Huff passed away in 2024. Her loss to the benzodiazepine community will be huge.
