Meds for Test Anxiety?!?!
Hi, first let me say I love this message board!! I discovered it a few days ago, and this is the best website EVER!!! I have learned so much from reading peoples' personal stories, especially the ones about tonsillitis.

I am taking the Bar Exam in february, and have HORRIBLE test anxiety. I am the person that has to pop 4 pepto's before a final exam in law school. Of course, that is over with, but I do not want to have diarehea during this exam. What kind of anti-anxiety drug can I get to take before this beast of an exam? I can't afford to fall asleep...The exam is 6 hours for 2 days (total of 12 hours of exam hell!)...Anyone have advice on this????

Beta blockers would be the best for this.

Don't use benzodiazepines like xanax, klonopin or valium as you won't be as mentally sharp, which is very important during the bar exams!
