    Your anxiety level would probably go down if you stopped worrying about taking pills.

    Ativan or xanax may work better for you. Xanax is great for panic attacks but short lived. Ativan can improve anxiety for eight hours.

    Smoke dope. Its safer and more effective than most anti-axiety meds

    Additionally, unlike every other drug your doctor can give you for anxiety, pot has no toxic effects.


    Sure it makes you a criminal.

    But which would you rather be: a healthy criminal who commits a misdemeanor every day, or a sickly dupe of BIG PHARMA who will migrate from one anti-anxiety med to another because eventually none of them actually work?

    I take Xanax for a few reasons.
    Anxiety....Stress....my nerves......one would have to understand my life to know why I take them.
    They are indeed prescribed to me by my doctor.....in fact, I am prescribed to take 3 pills per day. I don't usually take 3 a day tho.........sometimes I can get thru the day pretty much with no problems, but sometimes at night, I will take 2 or 3 at once, to help me relax and try and sleep.
    The sleeping doesn't always come easy~
    But Xanax does help my tummy settle down, relaxes me....makes me feel more calm.
    I would be totally lost without them~
