I have been moving up in mgs on celexa for 5 months now. I'm 25 yrs old with a little boy who was born 3 months early. He is 9 months old now but my anxiety hasn't changed one bit. My mother is prescribed xanex and she told me to try it. She takes 1mg but I only take .25 in the am and again at night. I have been taking it for only 3 days and I feel so much more calm and I feel like the person I want to be. Cognitive therapy helps but only when u are calm enough for it to work. How do I ask my dr for xanex without her thinking I'm a seeker??
newmom, if you have a good relationship with your doc and have been seeing him for awhile, just tell him how you feel and ask him what he thinks about you starting a very low dose of xanax. thats the way I did my doc and he said well I have been thinking about that. So it worked out for me. I'm very honest with my doc. Good luck and let me know what happens.
I was taking Xanax for anxiety(for many years!) and all I can tell you is NOW they have the warning of can cause seizures on it. When I became pregnant I stopped my meds, and i had idiopathic seizures caused by the stopping of the Xanax, so now im on adavant, and all i wish is that I never would have started the Xanax in the first place!! I don't see a way off of the adavant, for I do have panic attack disorder, but in the begging the Valium was just fine then Xanax came along my Doctor switched me and you know the rest. The Valium I could and did start and stop with no complications, I would caution you before taking Xanax!! Also you will go up and down on Xanax, where as on Adavant at least it levels out and lasts longer..Good luck!
