IIt is in the sense that Amitriptyline has the potential to eventually, if ever, curb anxiety. It, among it's other uses, is an Anti Depressant while Xanax is made and used mainly for immediate relief of anxiety. Hope this helps.

Amitriptylin is an antidepressant, & xanax is a benzo type drug used for anxiety. If you have depression or trouble sleeping amitriptylin is good for that & in turn may help your anxiety. Xanax is a fast acting anti-anxiety med , but doesn't last long( unless it's the exrended release type)... Mary
