My Dad is mad that I am on medication for anxiety. Is he right that these medicines are dangerous and can give dementia among other things?

I get them from a doctor and only take as prescribed.

    Medications for anxiety usually do not cause dementia. I don't know where your dad is getting his information at. He needs to talk to your prescribing doc who can talk with him and allay his fears about his.
