A reply to your question:
I happen to see your question and as someone who is a RN and also have taken this medication for years the answer to your question is yes there are side affects to comming of Xanax but only if you withdraw to quickly and that is after Long term use of the medication. There was a time I thought I could try something else for severe IBS and insomnia. I was taken off slowly and had no adverse affects except my symtoms of IBS returning and I could not sleep.. so yes they do help sleep, at least for me although some people might get a paradoxical affect meaning it will do the reverse of what it is supposed to .. Only you can be the judge on how this med. works for you..They do put all the side effects on medications for us to see by Law. Sometimes we get to worried about side effects than we should ..If you happen to have a paradoxical effect on xanax you would probably notice that other meds (medication that causes drowsiness) also makes you a bit Hyper.. Sort of like AdHD children taking a stimulant to calm them. Some people would do beter with this class of med vs downers...I know I drink alot of coffee before I go to bed and it helps.. me to sleep. LOL!!!! so I hope I was of some help.. Insomnia has plagued me since my teen years and I am now 39. and still trying to get some sleep it seems I only do that when my body just can't take it any longer and then I pass out for a good rest about once a week.. Hope things work out for you..DEE
