I've used Xanax off and on for 20 years.

It does cuase dependance, but for some of us its the only thing that helps our anxiety problems.

I have also used Clonopin, which is not as effective for me.

Niether one of these drugs gives me a "high" and I can and do use the dose the Pdoc prescribes, no more then that, so it is not addictive in that you need to up the dose after time, as with some drugs.

It would be great if there were an alternative to benzo's for treating anxiety disorders, but at this moment in time, there is not.
