I think for anxiety and possibly panic and help with Chronic pain it runs in the benzodiazepine group of medications I use the extended release Xanax, some of the other are Ativan, and Valium I think xanax is best according to the doctor in extended release due to the fact it releases a certain dose on a ongoing amount rather than just short acting. but what works for one person does not always for another best wishes
Hi nicolev. I am going to go out on a limb and say Neurontin. My psychiatrist prescribed it for anxiety for me 2 years ago. When I first started it , it was very calming. I liked the effects I got from it. Now I think I'm used to it, cause it doesn't work as good. But something to consider.
I was a firm believer that only xanax could manage my attacks. I never got addicted to them cause I only used them as needed after a couple of months of using them three times a day. Then I had to switch to buspar and I was not happy at first but finally got the right dose and it works great. Its not addicting like benzos or even make u mellow to where u don't feel out of it or sleepy. So I would suggest to try it. I have actually stopped taking them as prescribed from three times a day to once a day. Less medicine for me is better. Hope this helps. Take care.
