It sounds like you indeed have a depressive/anxiety disorder thing going on, and also because you entitlted your post as Xanax and Klonopin madness I'm assuming your not happy with them.

Have you tried a therapuetic dose of Luvox or perhaps another SSRI in the past?

Thats where I'd guess you'd want to start, and then maybe try to get off the Xanax if it's not required anymore. It will not be easy to get off of, but after 2-3 weeks if you're still suffering withdrawal you can be pretty sure you still need it. At that dose I would drop it by half a mg every 2-3 weeks and just be done with the suffering in 6 weeks. alternatively you might ask your doctor to switch you to an older and weaker benzo to slowly taper (Tranxene or Valium).

Them's just ma thoughts..
