    I am becoming to dependent on ambien or Ativan now lately since its seems calm me down even more from the others but like I said the side effects are unbearable. I am so worried about the employees at the my pharmacy for judging me about asking about my ambien prescription cause I don't want to look like a drug addict to them.
    Well...when I was on Xanax there were times when I would run out. Obviously. I was dependent on it, it was an addiction, so I would run out when I couldn't reach my dealer, or when she was out. And those were bad, bad times. I'd call the pharmacy, the doctors office to get a refill and it was complicated because it's not a prescription for allergy medicine or something. It's Xanax.

    It's a dangerous med to withdraw from by yourself, I've done it by myself and I seriously felt like I was going to die. I've withdrawn from it in a hospital and felt like I was going to die.

    I've heard bad things about Ativan, Fetisha. I obviously can't know, and would never assume, you have an addiction. I just....hope you don't. I hope you find something that helps you, that works for you. My problem was I didn't realize what I was taking was poisoning me, every day. I'm sure this isn't you're situation, but I was on so much Xanax at one point it was really just ridiculous. I was on it for I think 11 years. And I never missed one dose, ever. I forgot to take it a couple of times before work, and drove over an hour back home to take the fucking pill, I'm serious.

    While I don't take it anymore, Klonopin helped with the debilitating panic attacks I used to have

    I've had tremendous success with stimulant medication. Though my ADHD is also the main cause for a lot of the anxiety that I tend to go through.
