Lmills many of us with this DD develop anxiety or depression because of our lives with Crohns. I, and I happen know Fitzy does too, use Xanax when are anxiety ramps up. It has been a godsend. I now can recognize when I am becoming anxious and am able to take the Xanax and calm down. I kept thinking I was having little flares, come to find out it was anxiety. I only use my Xanax now maybe 2-3 times a month. Hope this helps.
