I called my doc a few months ago because I couldn't take the anxiety and stress anymore. She prescribed Paxil and Xanax. I took 1 Paxil and hallucinated so badly that I won't touch it again. I do take the xanax, but only as much as I need. I can take 4 a day (0.25 mg) but I only take 1 or 2 a day, depending on my anxiety level.
I tried ativan, but all it did for me was make me cry.
