Jack Vernon says only Xanax XR helps in reducing tinnitus, that alprazolam is not effective. What is your opinion?

My opinion is I find it hard to believe Jack told you that. What you probably read/heard was that Xanax XR is a more efficient option. (it's time released so you only take it once daily, can reduce headaches, etc.) Alprazolam vs. Xanax XR overall, very little difference if any will be seen as long as the alprazolam is taken consistently every 8 hours. Now, if a doc has you on alprazolam just once or twice per day, you bet. You'll get headaches and tinnitus fluctuations.
