Well, I stopped taking Xanax about a month ago. I was only taking one a day, 1mg., and decided I could live without it. Now I am questioning that decision!! I had a horrible weekend of anxiety and crying and now this morning, I am feeling better, but my heart rate is up, 117, and I am shaky and anxious! I just took the dogs for a walk to try and release some of the adrenaline, and it helped a bit, but I still feel anxious. I know many people do not like to take a medication that can become addicting, and that is part of the reason I stopped taking it, as I had taken up to 5 pills a day at one time, but now I SO wish I had one. Uh. I hate feeling this way. I have yet again, looked up the steps to helping yourself get over a panic attack and the only one that really helps is exercise...or getting busy doing something else. My house is spotless right now from this weekend! How do you cope when you are overly anxious or in a panic?
