Question Completely cured my anxiety, but now I have another problem! - September 5th 2009, 12:11 AM

Well, about 2 years ago I suffered a death in the family.. my brother who I grew up with my whole life died of cancer at the young age of only 35... after this happend I became what I like to call "Terminally depressed" .. I ended up losing my job because I didn't want to leave my bed and be out in the world, I just wanted my brother to come back... Sooner or later I started forcing myself to get up out of bed and by this time I was still very depressed but not enough anymore to make me completely immobilized, I also found myself to be INCREDIBLY anxious dealing with severe anxiety all throughout my days dealing with CONSTANT panic attacks. Especially in social situations... So a friend of mine convinced me to go see a psychologist who eventually referred me to a pyschiatrist who I began to see regularly...

This doctor must have put me on and I must have tried every drug out there from zoloft to paxil, prozac, celexa, buspar, klonopin, and most recently xanax which I'm still on. NONE of these meds worked for me... the depression, anxiety, and worst of all-panic attacks continued. Eventually, desperate, I began scouring the web for answers and I eventually came across this site .. anxiety.pcti-system. com .. which is this program to cure anxiety/panic attacks for good all naturally.. To make a long story short, it worked incredibly for me.. my anxiety is gone, depression as well almost all but gone, and I haven't had a panic attack in over a month. I do though from time to time still feel sorrow over my brother. However, this is my problem: I'm still taking my xanax because I'm completely ADDICTED.. when I try to stop taking it I start going through incredible withdrawls mentally and physically... If I would have known of this addiction problem I would have never allowed my doctor to put me on them. Has anyone else suffered from benzo addiction and if so, know how to safely get off it with minimal side effects?? Please any advice/comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

P.s- For those of you on SSRI antidepressants, I would really recommend taking a look at this site: ssristories. com .. From what I can tell looking in hindsight, these are potentially very unhealthy dangerous drugs.

Why would your doctor give you meds that you could be addicted to?
See him about it! BTW it's great you got over it!

Hey Jacky.. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. Congradulations on overcoming your anxiety and panic attacks... It's always good to hear positive stories from people. I also for the most part am over my anxiety.. coincidently as a result of the same program from the very site that you mentioned. It has worked very well for me as well... As far as your addiction problem, I'm not sure but I would say the way to do it would be to probably slowly ween off of it just like you would with any other drug.. Have you told your doctor about this problem???

Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear about your brother. It was a very unfortunate event and has obviously had a terrible effect on you. It is completely normal to feel like that though after something so stressful.

As for the medication, while it is rare to get addicted to medication that is prescribed to you it is also possible. I would reccomend that you visit your GP as soon as possible so he can give you some different medication. Addictions can be dangerous and can lead to accidental over doses.

3 days is usually when the withdrawal effects disappear. Just hang in there. Or you could try taking smaller doses. But honestly, it sounds better to just get over it in a shorter time span than having to deal with the difficulties of both withdrawal effects and symptoms associated with taking a lack of a greater dose.
