In brief: Overusing a drug

Yes. It is addictive behavior to take this drug daily and then to take it several times per day.
This drug is numbing you up. It is a sedative. It is not treatment or prevention or a cure for Anxiety. The drug should be used extremely sparingly given it's significant risk of causing addiction.
