> I've been on Xanax for years for anxiety, paranoia (with fears associated) and panic attacks. It has helped, but my doctor isnt in favor of prescibing it. Anxiety is still here, Vynanse just increases my alertness and concentration, but it may affect the nerves. But its crucial for attention and anxiety to be treated, thats the main thing. The next thing is, is depression.

The heart rate, sweating very much sound like fight or flight sensations that accompany some anxiety disorders. They're meant to be there and are part of our primitive systems, not to sound torturous, but medicating them away may not allow you to teach yourself in non medication manners to slowly eliminate them, which is very much possible. I agree, it is a hard thing.

If not that, then perhaps a low dose of propranolol while you try to work out these issues.


> How do you get out of a constant state of fear, say things no one will understand. Life is just a bad place right now. But i got plans.....forced plans.


As much as I don't like suggesting APs for everything, if your anxiety is this bad, something like a low dose of Seroquel for a short time might have benefits that outweight the risks.


Now you do have a different set of anxiety and attention conditions, but a large dose of a benzodiazepine and a stimulant, at least in some people tend to contradict each other, like gasoline on a fire. Its hard to break through the dosage of the benzodiazepine to make the stimulant work better.
