Why Has the FDA Allowed Xanax to Stay on the Market With the Overwhelming Potential for Addiction?

Question by Auntmarsa: Why has the FDA allowed Xanax to stay on the market with the overwhelming potential for addiction?
I know it sounds naive but I have seen so many instances of abuse and wonder at what point the societal cost of a drug outweighs the benefits. I just don’t understand.

Answer by mia
I take Xanax and I was well informed by my doctor the potential dependence this drug can have. I take the lowest dose possible split in half. I only use it when absolutely necessary this is why such a low dose still works for me. There are many people who abuse the drug but there are many people, like me, who don’t. I took my doctors precautions seriously. I did not depend on Xanax to cure me. I had to face the problems that caused me to take the drug in the first place. There is no magic pill, although it does work great, it should be used in combination with therapy so someday this drug is no longer needed.
