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 perscribed. 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
