i have OCD, as wellas other anxiety problems. I have been on Paxil twice. The first time it was fine, the second time was completly awful. I am opposed to taking drugs for the most part. But i would like to have something for acute anxiety, like panic attacks. I was prescribed xanax once when UI was out of town, for an emergency. It was very helpful. I don't know much about it, and am curious if you can get aperscription for occasional use. Is it helpful in small doses daily too? Does it always make you drowsy? How addictive is it?
