Paradoxical reaction: Some people do experience agitation or arousal in response to benzodiazepines, including diazepam/valium & alprazolam/xanax. Sometimes this is because of partial sedation or loss of focus, which can be upsetting; this should improve with dose reduction. Sometimes it is due to impaired ability to read/respond to your surroundings, which can be frightening.
