As you've begun to gain control of the irrational fears ( heaven knows, there are quite enough rational fears around to keep us occupied !) this is a major and commendable achievement. Itchy on exposure to benzo's must be possible, though I haven't come across it before. I suppose it might alternatively be a reaction to some other ingredient in the tablets / pills --- which always contain some other usually inert ingredients to help it hold together. I understand your doctor's viewpoint --- indeed people are quite often given benzo's like these when they have an itchy eczama, to help them feel calmer and less itchy.
