I am one who has been helped by long term xanax. I tried the valium and found it too sedating and somewhat depressing (maybe, though to be fair, it was because I was tapering the dose). Xanax works quite well for me over the past 25 years. It does seem to have more of an antidepressant effect, although I have been experiencing depression lately. Don't know which AD to add in if any as most of them are stimulants to begin with. Maybe up the xanax dose a bit to 2 or 2.25mg. still fairly low dose.

> Generally long acting agents like Valium are best for long term use rather than Xanax, yet still some people do take Xanax long term because it helps them more. Personally, I believe Xanax should be saved for PRN (pro re ne, as needed) for bad anxiety.
