I leave for spain in two weeks now and I'm worried because its a 10 hour flight, and ill be by myself because I'm meeting a study abroad group there. Longest flight I've been on was 6 hours, but that was before i got anxiety.
I'm new to this anxiety thing (only got it about a month ago), and it has gotten better but I'm thinking about taking a low-dose xanax on the plane so to avoid any anxiety, bc i know it would be horrifying being by myself on the way to a new country and on a plane. Even though my anxiety has gotten a lot better since i first got it, I'm sure the anxiety will come on the plane as I'm pretty claustrophobic even without the anxiety.
Ive never taken xanax before or any meds for that matter, so is this a good idea? i will probably get a doctors advice before but I'm truly interested in other's opinions because i don't exactly know how powerful the drug is. I could also get drunk on the plane but i don't want the hangover so I'm thinking of just bringing a xanax.
