I have anxiety attacks sometimes when I stay overnight at places and I decided to look into some anxiety anxiety drugs that I can take until I learn to deal with it on my own.
Thats what Xanax is for….anxiety. But it is very addictive and causes unfavorable side effects. For me, it makes me really depressed. My doctor switched me to a mild dose of Ativan and it works much better for me and no side effects. This is a new doctor and he told me he never prescribes Xanax to his patients unless they come to him already having been prescribed it by another doctor. He switched me because I was having so many problems with it. I really like the Ativan and it also doesn’t make me sleepy so I can take it during the day if I need to. I also take a medication for mild Bi-polar disorder called, Limictal and that really helps with my anxiety too.
