Default Still in Use?

I know Xanax is still prescribed as a mild anti-anxiety medication, but is it still generally prescribed to treat severe anxiety?

I used to take Xanax and it works. But to take doses higher than prescribed to you has it's effects as probably most of us know. When I was going through a really rough patch about two years ago, I was having panic attacks, then I became more majorly depressed and took more than I should have. It wasn't a good time.

Yes, Xanax is still in use. As a matter of fact, my boyfriend's doctor still prescribes it to him.

Sometimes my doctor gives me Xanax but usually he doesn't like giving me drugs like this. He says he'd rather me talk to a psycologist to find out what is causing my panic attacks. The thing is, I know what is causing them and talking to someone will not help me at all. I also don't want to talk about my personal problems to a complete stranger who will probably focus on something else rather than what I'm depressed about.

Yes, Because many people take anti-anxiety drugs for long periods of time. This is risky because, when taken regularly, benzodiazepines quickly lead to physical dependence. Drug tolerance is also common, with increasingly larger doses needed to get the same anxiety relief as before.
