Well, I would not : Use xanax (alprazolam) long term. There a # of ways to address anxiety: cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior modification, individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, psychotropic medications, qi gong, tai chi, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathy, meditation, yoga, exercise program or progressive muscle relaxation (to mention a few).

See below: Are you anxious about every day stuff or particular events?Generally, it's good to know what makes you anxious. Practice relaxation, mediation, guided imagery (you can google it); keep a diary of the events when you happen to be anxious -- what happened (the event), thoughts you had; things you've done to decrease anxiety; how you body responded (where did it feel in your body).

Counseling: Cognitive/behavioral counseling seems to work the best.
