I also tried Zoloft. I hated it!
I took Xanax about 20 years ago. A family physician had prescribed it (when I first found out I had anxiety). I LOVED Xanax. I had absolutely no anxiety and good take the world on. This doc never told me to taper off. I took it for about 3 months .25, 3x a day. I stopped it cold turkey and boy did I have major withdrawals. Felt like I was totally losing my mind, etc. Only lasted about a day and I was fine. I chalk it up to an MD who prescribed it but really knew nothing about it. I have learned so much about meds since then. I'm sure if I had tapered off of Xanax I would of been fine.
I like Klonopin. I've done a lot of homework on it. However I do not take it on a regular basis. I think a 30 day supply lasts me about 4 months. I would love to try it on a regular basis. In my opinion nothing beats the Benzo's for anxiety. The whole problem is the "habit forming" question.
