I have social anxiety and have attacks if im infront of a class or group and i dont know if xanax will help me when im actully standing up there..
You are not the first/ most definitely won't be the last as being afraid to try a med... but the thing is how will you no if could possible health you big x..your never no if you try... with that being said, my advice to you is to try it and if by a slim chance you can't tolerate it..let your doc no asap/ he can determine what to do next, but the bottom line is your not going to no if this med will help you if you don't try... and if you have issues with xanax, anything you feel is not right contact your doc asap... good luck/ keep us posted so we can be here for support for you/ give you other support if you need it..GOD BLESS...

I don't know what kind of therapy you are involved in, but let me share something that has been helpful for me. I too suffer from severe anxiety and take Lexapro and Xanax. I was terrified but my therapist has been working with me on a therapeutic course in Mindfulness. It is a technique that Buddhist practitioners have used for centuries. Modern psychologists now teach a non-religious form for sufferers of many kinds of psychological illnesses. It has changed my life. I'm still on meds; I don't think that will change. But starting to learn a little bit more of how to relate to yourself will help. The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself. Why not invest in it. I can't share any websites with you because the site moderators will delete it from my post but message me privately and I will steer you in the right direction. Be well.
