maybe if you eat because of anxiety or nervousness---these meds are in a class called benzodiazepines--a central nervous system depressant. they are used for anxiety and are very often habit forming, even after a few days---don't get yourself started, unless you honestly have to have them, due to an anxiety disorder or panic disorder. and even then there are other meds that accomplish the same thing. i have seen dozens of people get addicted to xanax--I truly think its overprescribed.
anyway, i'll get off my soap box now
hope this answers your question.
