Discussions that mention valium

Anxiety board

i can't really find an answer for my anxiety. i dont want to leave my house. i have shortness of breath and get really nervous. what meds can i try for long term. short term, ativan and valium make me so sleepy. xanax seems to take the edge off without the tiredness. can anyone suggest meds for severe anxiety and possibly agoraphobia or whatever its called. i just fear leaving my house. anyone have this problem and what helps you. jason
