      For me Xanas was a nightmare . Help for my T only the first week and then I developed H with it . I stopped it and switch back to Clonazepam. H is gone .
      Also Xanas you have to take it every 6-8 hours . You become very addicted. very short life
      Clonazepam , once at bedtime have a longer life
      But sincerely if you can avoid Benzo and try others softer stuff would be better . Withdrawal are not easy with Benzo . I know what I am talking

      Do you take it because your tinnitus is bad? How long have you taken it? and how does it make your body feel?

      Yes I took it because my T was bad . It help you sleep and if lucky the day after T can lower , only if you take 1 at night when your T is really loud . I would say max 3 or 4 Xanas per month to avoid addiction and tolerance

      I was prescribed xanax early on for anxiety related to my tinnitus. I ended up using it mostly for sleep, which it really helped me with. I never took more than two .5mg tabs a day - eventually breaking the tablets in half and taking .25mg at a time. I eventually stopped taking them as I didn't want to get addicted - but took .25 about 4 days ago because I couldn't get to sleep. When I woke my tinnitus was quite low - which I guess I would attribute to lower anxiety.

      I'm definitely finding a direct correlation between my tinnitus and anxiety / stress / depression. I started meditating about 10 days ago and am seeing some benefit.

      It does work to calm the tinnitus. It's not a long term solution though.

      How long did it take for the H to go away after you stopped Xanax?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      one week after leg surgery plus hearing loss in higher freq.
      I take one valium befor bed and get a solid 6 to 7 hours sleep and have been using it for three years. Never take over one a day and havent noticed any side effects. I believe poor sleep is a side effect of T and if im addicted to one a day I really dont care..

      It's very effective as a temporary measure when you're having a bad spike.

      The doc told me that 0.5mg no more than twice a week is safe, any more than that risks addiction - and one of the withdrawal symptoms is more T.

      So it's valuable but must be used sparingly.
