Xanax saved my life! I have bad tinnitus from a gunshot and I kept feeling that my life was over and I couldn't get out of bed. It wasn't a miracle cure, but it took the edge off my anxiety and helped me deal with my problems. I've been off it a year and stressfull events have made my anxiety come back worse with a new symptom (noise sensitivity) that has been difficult to deal with. Now not even a head doctor will give me anything to calm down.
