I have taken Xanax and have to admit that at times it has really helped to settle my stomach. I suffer from intense bloating with my IBS. The pain and discomfort causes me to become extremely anxious which then creates a vicious cycle. I have recently gone off of Xanax because I felt I was becoming too dependent on it. The first week off was tough and I had a very hard time sleeping however, I am glad to be off of it now. I have started taking calcium and magnesium dilligently because it is a natural calming agent. I am definitely feeling a lot calmer these days. Anyway, Xanax is helpful for anxiety and can definitely take the edge off of the IBS symptoms but please use it with caution because it is quite addictive. Take care of yourself.
