Hello meysam. There are other drugs available for your anxiety. It depends how severe and what form your anxiety is. GAD Generalized Anxiety Disorder a drug such as Buspar or Zoloft is prescribed. You mentioned Xanax. This drug is used for panic attacks, anxious moments, or say, when for example, going to give a speech in public. Xanax is a benzodiazepine and it can and is habit forming. Its often abused and doctors are becoming more and more cautious, when perscribing them for thier patients. Regards, pledge
as pledge has stated, It depends how bad your anxiety is and how it comes about. Is it phobia based? or is it random panic attacks such as a generalized anxiety disorder(GAD). Zoloft is an ssri, A basic antidepressant and will take 4-6 weeks to feel the full effect from.Which i see you've been on for 3 months now, so perhaps upping your dose may be your best bet, But it is a long term answer to GAD. Xanax will be a good addition for panic attacks and i stress only in times where you feel that if you don't take it, you will be out of control. It is a short term fast attacking highly addictive drug. At the same time it is very helpful. But as always always discuss these ideas with your doctor
Zoloft and other SSRI drugs as you will find , cause you to not be bothered by anything. You are not you period. Zoloft celexa lexapro Prozac and Paxil is a doozy, and dear god don't get on amitryptline as you will hand serious drag ass. I'm sure I have left out a couple that I have taken. Seriously Ill people need some of these but not for the anxiety that is just that ANXIETY!
Doctors will fight you tooth and nail over Xanax. I have fought with a clover 20 years and they no longer bother talking to me about SSRI's.
.5 mg Xanax is where I started. Ms over 15 years later the same dose or occasionally 1mg at bed time. I have pills left when refill is due and it is. Crucial that you don't abuse them and you will get dependable results. Good luck.
If you can avoid xanax with exercise, diet and a low dose SSRI then perhaps consider that option. After 9 years of xanax dependence and abuse it is living hell. If it can be taken as prescribed for a short term then well and good. The alternative can be dangerous. I'd rather drink bleach than take that drug.
