I have been suffering from not only IBS but alsofrom migraine headaches for the past 6 years. I have recently found a medication which has beenvery effective for both. The link between the twohas been anxiety. The medication is alprazolam orXannax(sp). When first prescribed I found it helped me sleep better, but recently have used itmore during the day. I take one-half of a .25 mgtablet twice a day. This has been better than ANYof the countless number of medications my primarycare and my neurologist have tried before. Theproblem and frustration is now my neurologist issaying not to rely on it so much because itsaddicting and reliance can reduce its potentialeffectiveness. I was told to only use it asneeded-which is like always!!! He would rathersee me use an anti-depressant like elavil instead!What do you think?
