Why are prescribers so intent on no benzos when they talk about them like they may actually help.. my friend took Xanax for 10 years, it got her a job and helped her stay with it. I understand the addiction aspect, but if that's always going to be the reason for refusal then why do those drugs exist in the first place?

      It's not meant to be used long term that's why. I've used it to get through bad days while working on getting control through better coping skills.

      yeah it can be bad for you long term, and frankly it works too well, which they're starting to realize now. it's really an as-needed medication for panic attacks
