Thanks, Scott. Obviously I have much to learn about the antianxiety drugs. I have been on tricyclics before, but I tend to react very, very badly to antidepressants so I've stopped even trying them now. Depression is definitely an issue, but the last few years the anxiety has been worse than the depression. I had no idea there was a longer acting Xanax, so I'll definitely ask about that.
Is it true that if you take it regularly it doesn't make you feel so tired and out of it? It generally works well in terms of getting my brain to shut the h*ll up so I can sleep, but that's a downside during the day when I need to work.
Thanks again for your help.
