I wrote a week or so back... and could use a bit more advice.
I have been on Xanax for the most part for almost 3 months, everyday .25 pills.
I took one and a half in the morning, and one at night, sometimes one in the afternoon if my anxiety needed it but the afternoon does was rare. Doc told me that I need to do something other than xanax because it is addictive. Tried cymbalta... felt like I lost my mind for 2 days... About 1 week later tried lexipro...took a week worth of pills...felt awful.
Decided to stop all of them been off lexipro for a week now and xanax for 3 or so days. Yesterday I felt much better and thought I had made the right decision and work up this am in the middle of a colossal panic attack -profuse sweating, racing heart, fear, anxiety.
I have no idea now if I am experiencing xanax withdrawl.... or made the wrong decision in stopping the meds... Anyone else ever have xanax withdrawl?
Forgot to add.. have no appetite and have lost 30+ pounds in the past 2 months... could not eating increase my problems?
I am unbelieveably frustrated with this. Never had a panic or depression problem in my life. And now it suddenly rules me...
Any advice? especially on xanax withdrawl?
