Hi everyone. I know someone who gets treated for severe anxiety with Xanax. The thing is, they're starting to become even MORE anxious than before overtime. I've heard that Xanax can cause rebound anxiety, so it becomes a vicious cycle. You're nervous, so you take the Xanax, but then the rebound anxiety kicks in worse after it wears off, so you have to take it again. Do you think benzos are actually more harmful than helpful with anxiety disorders?
