I've been having a very rough weak and finished my prescription of Xanax. I can't refill the prescription because it was voided by my doctor due to a fainting incident while having blood drawn. Some back ground, I'm horribly afraid of needles. I took .25 mg of Xanax half an hour before the test, went into the room and found out that they were pricking my finger instead. After roughly 30 seconds of balling my eyes out I fainted. My doctor was convinced it was because of the Xanax and not the blood test, with which I have had problems before. I have 8 5mg tablets of BuSpar and I've taken two so far this week due to stress and just horrible panic attacks. The Xanax helped me a lot. The BuSpar seems to be like Xanax, except half of the anxiety relief, twice the time to relieve the anxiety, and four times the hangover. I woke up feeling horrible after having BuSpar, and I've never had a hangover on Xanax.
I've been reading that BuSpar is often used as a daily 3 times drug to help with GaD as a prevention to panic attacks, not as a "as needed" drug if you will. Should I contact her at the next opportunity and find out what's going on? BuSpar doesn't help my anxiety nearly enough or fast enough, but Xanax does.
aside; I'm taking 40 MG of Prozac everyday for about a week and no signs of improvement have shown.
