I need information on xanax. Can it really be addictive? What can i do if i see the person gets addicted to it? Is there any medication, that may not be as risky as xanax for panic attakcs and that is better working than paxil?

User avatar There is a medication called Klonipon, that comes in a wafer form. This med is designed to be placed under the tongue when a Panic Attack starts. Ask your doctor about it.
