How many find anxiety meds helpful? I have been on xanax for a few years and find it has been a very good medicine for me. Also when my sinuses/allergies act up my anxiety / depression goes through the roof..I say allergies but all my allergy test are negative. Foods etc. When my sinuses/ ear issues are doing ok so is my anxiety.. Anyone experience this? I know xanax has a bad reputation but I have nothing but good to say about it..
