Hi All! I'm new here. My anxiety is starting to get rough. I'm currently home from work because I'm just exhausted. The doctor prescribed me .25 mg on xanax. It gave me temporary relief, but now i'm starting to feel really down & i'm not a depressed person. The other day I had a panic attack, which I don't usually get (I'm an anxious person but don't get full blown attacks)..I took a xanax and my anxiety got worse. I couldn't calm myself down so I went to the hospital. I just feel really antsy and on edge. I think i'm going to stop taking the xanax. I just started therapy last week, so i'm hoping that works. I'm just praying i'm not a hopeless case..I'm really scared. Kind words and advice are appreciated!
