Re: Why do I have anxiety upon waking every morning
i too have anxiety in the morning. My doctor also prescribed Xan.. for me, but I am VERY reluctant to take it. I am the stubborn type who tries to force myself to calm down, rather than take the meds.
My anxiety is very bad in the morning. I used to be able to sleep comfortably in the mornings, even after my fiance gets out of bed, until 9 or so (on a weekend). But lately, I am up at 7:30, and cannot go back to sleep, or lay there comfortably. I think part of my problem is that as soon as I wake up, my first thought is "will I have anxiety today". And of course that starts the anxiety....it's a horrible cycle that I am despirately trying to break. By the afternoon/evening tho, on a good day that I have been able to calm myself down, I seem to be fine....
