I have been waking up to diharrah and stomach cramps for almost 2 years because of "IBS", They have had me on bentyl and xanax (alprazolam) and neither has helped?
Being treated for anxiety and ibs. Stomach gets upset bloated gasy and urgency to go bathroom. On Xanax (alprazolam) and bentyl is that ok?
Hard to say: Without knowing your full health history, and what else has been tried, impossible to give good advice. The best treatment for IBS, especially when associated with anxiety, is to treat the anxiety effectively. Benzos, including Xanax, (alprazolam) are NOT the first line treatment for chronic anxiety. Psychotherapies of various kinds and SSRI/SNRI medications are generally better. Increase fiber in your diet. ...Read more

No: And is this Xanax (alprazolam) prescribed to YOU? If not, it is not safe under ANY circumstances. Xanax (alprazolam) is the most widely abused of all benzodiazepines in the US, in part because it hits the brain quick and hard, while having a short half-life that leaves you anxious again in just a few hours.
