I am 18 yrs. old and have major trouble trying to fall asleep. I've been this way ever since i can remember. I am almost certain it's caused from anxiety because my mind is constantly racing and i constantly feel like I'm going to miss out on something. If i have to make a big decision (depending on how long I think about it) I increasingly become panicky. I have gotten xanax a few times from people i know that have it and it seems to help a lot.
Have you tried a therapist or going to a psychiartrist. You may have another disorder like gad,bipoplar or add. I am no doctor but it is good to rule it out. Xanax can be very effective for anxiey and i use it for sleep but it has a short half life thats why I am up at 4am writing to you. I went to bed at 11 and woke up at 4am, so I got 5 hours sleep and thats good for me. Their are better sleep meds out their and maybe if you got a med for a good nights sleep you might feel better and a lot of doctors dont write xanax anymore because of the abuse potential.Get evaluated first and see what the docs say. if you suffer from anxiety then maybe a small dose of benzo for a little while until another med is found that can be effective for you,but I think thats your first step.Good luck and keep asking the questions.
I think that you should discuss this with your doctor. He might be able to help you but he/she may refer you to a therapist. You should try to find out what it is that is causing you to have racing thoughts that interfer with you sleep. I definetly would not use someone elses medication as this can cause more serious consuquences. Talk to your parents or or you doctor. I am sure you can get a resolve to this oher than taking medication such as Xnax Good luck an d I hope this helps
I would ask your doctor for something that wasn't a benzo because they are just too habit forming. There are a lot of other options besides Xanax for sleep. If you feel that you are suffering from anxiety as well, I would talk to your doctor about that too. You don't want to see a doctor and tell him/her that you need a certain medication because it makes you seem like you are drug-seeking. Tell him/her your symptoms and see what he/she prescribes. Good luck.
if you really really need xanax or something strong just go online and look at all of the anxiety meds they will give you before you get to xanax. and tell them you have tried everything but that and nothing works they will most likely start you off on that right off of the bat. also dont tell them what you want or need because it doesn't help one bit. the problem like what i have seen in a few peoples posts was that two of the best anxiety meds are commonly abused by a bunch of dumb fucks and those of us who need it to be stable cannot get it. so be smart about what you say to your doctor when you talk to him or her. i've been to like 6 doctors and none of them will give me xanax for my sleep and my severe anxiety disorder shit you might have better luck finding it on the street at least you will have a stable supply of what you need.. right not these douchebags gave me some bullshit called visteril and it doesnt help so good luck trying to get the good stuff
