Abstract in Portuguese
O avanço econômico, científico e tecnológico, vem levando a um aumento da expectativa de vida e consequente envelhecimento da população. Assim, o idoso requer atenção especial pela maior incidência de doenças crônicas e degenerativas e pelo aumento concomitante no uso de fármacos, podendo ocasionar complicações pela sua maior vulnerabilidade à eventos adversos (EAs), uso inapropriado e abusivo, exposição à interações medicamentosas sérias, e casos de iatrogenias. Acrescenta-se o fato particular de um aumento abusivo no uso de benzodiazepínicos (BDZs). O objetivo deste trabalho foi rever e sintetizar as evidências geradas por ensaios clínicos controlados e randomizados sobre a incidência de EAs relacionados ao uso de BDZs em idosos com ansiedade ou insônia em comparação àqueles que, sob as mesmas condições clínicas, não o utilizaram. Desenvolveu-se a recuperação de artigos em cinco bases de dados eletrônicas na área da saúde (PubMed, SCOPUS, Web of Science, Cochrane Central, e LILACS), para posterior análise combinada (metanálise) dos resultados evidenciados.

Abstract in English
The economic, scientific and technological progresses have provided an increase in life expectancy and the consequent process of aging. Thus, the elderly requires special attention due to the higher incidence of chronic and degenerative diseases and the higher concomitant increase in the drugs use that may cause complications by increasing ulnerability for adverse events (AEs); nappropriate and abusive use; exposition to serious drug interactions, and iatrogenic cases. Add to these the particular abusive increase in benzodiazepine (BDZ) use. The objective of this study was to review and synthesize the evidence generated by randomized controlled trials on the incidence of AEs related to therapy with BDZs in elderly with anxiety or insomnia compared to those under the same clinical conditions, not medicated. The articles were recovered in five healthcare electronic databases (PubMed, SCOPUS, Web of Science, Cochrane Central, and LILACS), for subsequent combined analysis (meta-analysis) of the results.
