Hmm....well I'll keep the Phenergan in mind - thanks.

As for Xanax XR, I can't see why it would be any different than simply popping a lesser dose 3 times a day. I think the XR factor is just a convenience issue. So I'd be just as worried about taking it as I would the standard Xanax.

...and unfortunately I think I'll need to rely on an anxiolytic medium to long term too. Without writing another chapter of my life here, basically I am in the middle of a messy divorce. Kids involved, lots of stress & lawyers.

Every time I get a bit of bad news it hits me really hard. I just get devastated for the next week. Physically it triggers / causes pretty severe anxiety 24x7 plus my confidence in dealing with other little problems (like unemployment) gets eroded too. Did I say eroded? I mean wiped out. So is this GAD? I don't know. I'm just writing it in case someone thinks this type of anxiety lends itself to a certain type of drug.

Thanks ;)

Mr Be Damned.
