I wanted to post about the fear of meds. I know so many of the other members post about the fear of taking pills to help with the daily anxiety. And there are some who worry about the addictive side to some of the medication. I take Paxil everyday (20mg). And because i was having a really bad time with my anxiety and depression in the mornings my GP gave me Xanax. Now the Xanax is a quick fix type of pill that I was to take when things got bad. So I started to take it everyday with my Paxil. But after a while I began to feel a little "drugged out" and I realized that I was over medicating. So after about a month I stopped taking the Xanax completely about two weeks ago... after taking it for about 30 days. I had very little trouble coming off the Xanax. Maybe a day or two of feeling tired and non productive. Now I know these pills effect people in different ways. Just a word to the wise about things that have been said online about certain pills. Don't shy away from something that may help dramatically because of what you have heard or been told. Much Love steve
