Finding the right medication for you can sometimes be hard.
The first thing you try doesn't always work.

Xanax was the first thing I ever tired and it worked for me and it still works to this day.
For me it was a lifesaver...literly.
But, you'll find other people that think Xanax or any other benzo is the worst family of drugs that was ever created.

There are people that swear by the SSRI's...like Paxil and Zoloft...I got the bright idea once that I wanted to try these instead of my Xanax...for me they were HELL.

So what works for one person, may not work for another.
The best thing to do would be to talk to your Doctor...ask a LOT of questions about the drug he wants to put you on and weigh the pros and cons.

You COULD look up the side effects of the drug he recommends, but for me that's not a good thing to do.
It used to be that if my Doctor would prescribe even and antiboitic for me I'd rush home and look up the side effects...low and behold...I'd get EVERY side effect listed.
So if you have a habit of "Getting" every thing you read about, just do what I do now.
Just tell yourself that yes, some people WILL have that side effect but that doesn't mean you will.
