    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 I've withdrawn from it in a hospital and felt like I was going to die.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.
    You're going to lose people in your life, and realize that no matter how much time you spent with them or how often you told them you loved them, it will never seem like it was enough.

    Hug the ones you love.

    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.

    Propranolol was extremely impactful in my life. I was angry no one suggested it 10 years ago, could have saved me a lot of grief of lost jobs and friendships. It takes the edge off of everything. I'm no longer about to jump out of my skin, or leap into a deep rage, or need a week to come down from an argument. My heart used to go non stop racing. I can eat, I can sleep, I can interact with others without being a total mess. I don't obsess about all my problems. There are times I'm overwhelmed and support is needed but I can function so much better. It's really night and day. The depression is still really deep and caffeine helps me cope. Next will be a medicine for the depression.
