Anxiety board


Hey Paul,
What long-term, non-addictive, anti-anxiety drug are you on? I've actually never heard of such a thing! I am suffering from severe anxiety which started after I weaned myself off Zoloft last year. I'm currently on 5 mgs of Lexapro, but that's not cutting it for the anxiety, and I don't want to go up because of side effects. I find myself using Xanax more and more and I'm afraid I'll become addicted to that as well. Ugh, what a mess we get into when we start these antidepressants in the first place.
