I had an incident that triggered general anxious, nervous feelings most of the time, however its not that bad... ie not like a panic attack or such. Went to my pcp and was given xanax, which I thougt was a little much. Took it just once. However my sleep has been affected, I took valerian, hydroxyzine every now and then to help me sleep.
Hi anxiety9, I agree with phillip6103! It sounds as though you're feeling like you need some more specialized help, and your primary doctor can only do so much. I also agree with you. Xanax is a pretty serious med to start with. If I were you, and I liked my primary, I'd ask for a referral. It's important to have a doctor you feel comfortable with and can really talk to. You may not like the first psychiatrist you see, so it's best to get started now looking for one who suits you. Take care. I hope everything works out well for you, keemo7
