anxiety fix via xanax
    #4167637 - 05/12/05 07:50 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Im thinking about going to see a psychiatrist. I would basically like some Xanax to be able to use before stressful situations. I dont want to be medicated and 'fixed' pharmacutically ie having to take pills like 3 times a day or whatever. I just want something to help keep me calm in social situations. I have never been to a psychiatrist, so I would like some advice on what to say that would get me Xanax perscribed or something similar. I know this sounds silly, (but every time I take Xanax I feel completely fine around strangers and in any and all situations). I know for me it is lazy way to go about dealing with my feelings and self and whatnot, but I don't plan on staying on them for too long.

They'll usually prescribe Xanax or some other benzo for social anxiety and panic attacks (more for the latter than the former). Careful though, that stuff can be quite addicting. I'm sure you already knew that, but I thought I'd mention it anyway......

I'm struggling to ween myself off of klonopin.

First few months (including with SSRI's) - no sex drive. No short term memory whatsoever.

Months 4-10: dosage got increased to 6mg a day. Every passing day was a liquid dream. Today, I still can't believe it's May 2005. It feels like 2003 to me, and I cannot believe I'm older.

Months 10+: I finally realized after a long time on this drug that I cannot be on it forever. I'm taking ~3mg a day now, maybe 3.5mg on average, and have binged in the pits of situational depression.

Most doctors will say anxiety is caused by fear of death or fear of loss of control. Irrational fears, IME, are the BIGGEST problem with anxiety because fear of death (egoloss) and fear of loss of control (getting a grip on reality) can be easily fixed.

If you ever wanna chat, pop a PM my way.

But definitely don't fall into benzos, mang. They no good.


Oh, and

Yeah serious. Watch out with Xanax. It feels real nice and alot of people get hooked.

Try herbs like Kava Kava and/or Valerian first. They work just as well, but aren't addictive.

I realize they are addictive, but I recently beat a nicotine addiction and Im feeling pretty strong. I will try the herbs you mention rth. I think I am quite simply going to have to find time to self reflect/meditate. Anyway thanks for the advice and comments all of you.

in the long run, in my experience, benzos have only made the issues they were supposed to help with worse.. and its one nasty addiction

I was put on xanax about 2 months ago. They help, but don't make a habit of them because you might get addicted. I catch myself wanting them a lot... but I only take them once every few days.
