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??
