What Medication Should I Get

I have had xanax for my anxiety for a year or so. I don't take it all the time. The reason I want to get onto differant medication or something extra is because with xanax I only take them when an attack starts or when I begin to feel anxious. I want something to take so that the anxiety doesnt start at all.

Any suggestions? Please

What Medication
Is it possible to get to the root cause of your anxiety and deal with those issues rather than take additional medication?

I know that probably sounds alot easier than it is in reality but it must be the better long term solution??

Kind regards,

Hey there! I used to take prozac everyday besides xanax....But it made me so sleepy all the time, and I didn't notice any positive effects of it on my anxiety....Now my doctor has me on buspar...And I love it! No tiredness, no nausea, and no worrying if it's working...I definitely notice a difference!

Buspar is a bit different than the ssri's alot of people are on....And that was probably just what worked for me...But I would ask your doctor about it. Everyone is different....But I would hope it would work for you as well as it has worked for me! I jsut got back from a weekend in chicago....I could have never done that before going on buspar!

Hey I know its easy for me to say this - but shouldn't the key be to try to quit all drugs. You simply can't continue to make medication over a long term period.

Agree. I am so trying to get off my xanax. I am starting qualified counselling in a week or so.

Maybe This Will Help?
I am on medications for depression and anxiety, my doctor has me taking zoloft for depression and wellbutrine for both depression and anxiety. My family says they notice a difference in my behavior and such but I take the pills every night and continue to see a therapist. Im not going to lie, I do still have anxiety attacks but they are easy to handle and go away when I just have someone with me. Your not alone!
I hope you find a cure <3

I too am learning to get through them. The thing that I have to remember is that when they do pop up after months without anything.... They are just there to remind me of how I used to be. I got through them before and I will get through them again, they can't hurt me
