I'm on .25 mg 3 times a day and barely notice any difference in my anxiety.
Xanax isnt a pain medication but if stress aggravates your back pain then Xanax might help by relieving the stress. It may also help you sleep better. The thing with chronic Xanax use is that the body gets tolerant to the effects quickly and it is a bugger to get off this medication once your body becomes dependent on it. Once you are dependent, you cannot just stop the drug, you have to taper off and even that can be difficult. Some people have seizures when stopping this drug. In my opinion, Xanax should be used very sparingly (but that is just my humble opinion) You are on a small dose. That may be why it is not helping your anxiety.
