Anxiety board

I never had anxiety attacks before in my life. I have been sick most of the winter have been on numerous medications and now I am having anxiety attacks in the mornings as soon as I wake up. I think it maybe be medicine related, but how do you get through these. The doctor has given me xanax, but I don't want to start using them as a crutch.
dont be too proud to take the xanax
anxiety or panic on waking is fairly common, having to face a new day can be stressful
its best to get up, rather than lie in bed and brood :eek:
