I've been taking medications for my anxiety for the past ten years, and have been on quite a few different ones. Did you have a certain question?

I am taking Lexapro right now, and was prescribed xanax for when I have a attack to stop them. I have not been on them long! But they seem to be working they make me much calmer

I have taken Xanax before but didn't find that helpful to me. I am taking ativan again now and find that helpful, though I am also on other medications (wellbutrin and ciprilex). Are you worried about the addiction factor?
