I've had severe panic and anxiety attacks since the end of my pregnancy and so on. The psychiatrist I see has me on vistril for it and it's not helping at all. I've tried taking a half of one as well and I cannot function it makes me so tired and doesn't help at all. My mom recommended me talk to him about prescribing me .25mg xanax or ativan. She is on xanax. I don't want him to think I'm a junkie and I don't know how to go about the situation. Any ideas or suggestions?
I agree with your mom a benzodiazepine like Xanax may be the answer to your problem, why put up with anxiety if there are medications out there that can help you immediately, don´t wait, you are not a junkie you are a person with anxiety issues, and asking for help does not make you a junkie at all, I also take benzos, I take Klonopin, and that does not make me a junkie, I strictly use it as indicated, now, I don´t think you are going to abuse them.
One thing that you must already know is that they are terribly addictive even @ low doses.
Talk to your Dr., perhaps he / she will not prescribe a benzo, but something else, but you must contact your Dr. first thing in the morning and put an end to your problem.
Best of luck...
