> So it didn't help your anxiety enuf to skip the Xanax or did you have Panic Attacks...? Cuz if it doesn't help anxiety much, I'm going to need to add something to it....

Tough to say b/c of how things worked out. I was put on xanax only for a while. Helped for a couple months, then started having break-through attacks. That's when the Pamelor was added, and I didn't have any problems after that. So, I can't say the Pamelor did the trick by itself. It may have, and it may have only worked with the xanax.

Tell the doc about the obsessive thoughts. Don't hold stuff back. You're the only one with all to gain/lose. And, as far as depression goes, it should work for that, but we're all a little different chemically. Nevertheless, hopefully you'll have nothing but success on it.
