We all know that Xanax although a great medication for short term and emergencies when it comes to panic attacks and anxiety, but it should not be used for the long term. I know my psychiatrist is against it. Long term high usage can screw you up and is worse for anxiety. Tim has been put on 6 mg of anxiety as well as propananol which also treats anxiety. Can any of you guys in the states or around suggest a better medication which is not addictive which he can take to the VA??
