Yes, xanax can be addicting. I guess that you could call it that. But if you are going to have anxiety, it is a good method of combating it.
I took paxil and didn't have any weight gain from it. But some people might.
There are other methods of fighting anxiety other than pills as in meditation, relaxation and breathing techniques. I guess it is all in what you need.
I hope that you can figure out what is right for you.
