Crippling Anxiety Woohoo

Posted on by Eggy

I was taking Xanax for a while for anxiety, and let me tell you, out of every drug out there... the withdrawals from this are literally hell on earth. Don't ever take it too much in a row. Sweating, shaking, crying, panic, anxiety, nausea, vertigo, spinning, insomnia. It's hell. I was a mess for at least 5 days. I'm finally starting to feel better and this was on a fairly average dose, I can't even imagine what people go through detoxing on higher doses of this stuff. I tried not taking my anti-depressants and switching them for Xanax but nope, hugely bad idea. 0/10 would not recommend. 

Will I continue my anti-depressants? I don't know yet. We will see after I'm back to baseline. (Baseline being crippling anxiety -_- ) 

If anyone out there is suffering from anxiety, just know you are not alone. We are all living the same hell and looking for ways to hopefully make it better. Physical treatment by doctors has come so far in 20 years, but when it comes to mental treatment, they are still far behind sadly. 

I'm not sure if this is one of those things that "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" I think it will leave the opposite, and leave me with a bit of trauma to be honest hahaha. Goddamn man. 

Don't ever touch Benzodiazepines unless you really really REALLY REALLY REALLY have too.
