Hi! My new provider (NP) for severe anxiety and depression

Hi! My new provider (NP) for severe anxiety and depression is wanting to abruptly discontinue my nightly dose of diazepam of 10mg, but I have been on benzodiazepines for 15 years. Some of my previous MD’s and current pharmacist have been adamant about a long and careful weaning process. This new provider does not agree, and she said that my gabapentin, which is taken for chronic pain, will prevent any seizures. How should I move forward?

My husband suffers from severe anxiety and panic attacks. Whenever he hears about some bad things happening around like a death of a distant relative, illness etc he becomes very depressed and gets these panic attacks. He starts crying and screaming. Of late this behavior is repeating quite frequently and in public places also. Is there any permanent solution for this.
