I suffered a spinal cord injury to my neck and had to have a disk removed and as a result I developed a ringing in my ears and a fairly severe nevrous condition. I am a public speaker and the stress of this makes the nervous condition worse. The doctor put me on Xanax - .5mg once a day. I have been on Xanax for about two month and it has helped. What concerns me is the doctor said I would have to be on Xanax the rest of my life.
What I have heard about Xanax worries me. Is there any need on my part to be concerned?
