It's really nice seeing you again, not under the circumstances though. If you have a good doc, ask about a longer acting BDP like valium. Xanax tends to wear off pretty fast. I can do a little research and see what's available. I hope you still see a counselor as they should be able to help with anxiety and tips on how to avoid panic attacks. It's a tough road to go down, hang in there and keep on fighting this. You're too young to have to deal with these issues.

I have been in out patient therapy for 13+ yrs for sevier anxiety disorder, social anxiety, and depression. Over time my phychologist has changed my meds various times. These changes were consistent with the up and down fight i had with both my disorders. I was eventually placed on xanax 1mg and i was up to 4 a day. And 200mg of zoloft a day. At the time this did help. But i eventually got to point that i felt like a zombie, and i felt sedated all the time. I brought this to my doc. We finally found a mix that helped all my ptoblems. Klonopin 1mg 3xs a day and lexapro 20mg 2xs a day. This really did the trick. The lexapro on top of being a very good depress med, it also helps with the anxiety. With these two drugs together i was able to get my life back. My anxiety for the 1st time in my life is very managable. And i dont feel sedated all the time. These meds together with talk therapy has made me a different person.
