My spouse suffers from anxiety, and was prescribed Xanax! This medication has worked wonders for them, made them feel the way they use to growing up, and has made it possible for them to communicate with others, and be able to get out, and helped them function better at work with fellow workers! However they are in military and unable to take the Xanax, so we need to find a medication they are able to take in the Military, that will work jus as well as the xanax did! Since they have had to come off the Xanax, there has been a complete change in them, shying away from everyone, not being able to open up again!!! Please help us!!!
Hey desperatly need help,
There are some 15 different benzodiazepines which is what xanax is. Don't know which the military might approve. If they are against the benzodiazepines then they might be more likely to prescibe BuSpar which is a medication that treats anxiety and fear but is not addictive like the benzo's.
The BuSpar must be taken as prescibed not as needed and will take a little while to build in the body to start working but it is a very good medication for the condition described.
Hope this helps,
