Discussions that mention xanax

Anxiety board

Hi..this is my first time ever posting a comment but I think that it is urgent at this point. My main problem is that I have constant racing thoughts, none of which are positive, and I fear I am driving myself crazy. It never stops unless I am really focused on something else. It is making me sad and I am scaring myself because I feel I have no control over it. Does this happen to other people? I know it is symptom but I am at the point where I am exhausted at trying to constantly combat negative thoughts with positive self talk because I feel it is hopeless cause I have been doing so much of it and it is not working...so I end up saying things like who are you kidding, this is never going to end. It is effecting my life severly. Does anyone think that xanax helps with this sort of thing. I am at the point where I will do anything that might help. Thanks for any input you might have.
Do you have ADD? I do and I also have GAD. I think these two combined are a recipe for racing thoughs. Xanax is very helpful in treating this, but it also has its risks. There is no doubt that if you take Xanax, eventually you will build up a tolerance, and it will require a higher dose to get the same effect. Also Xanax is very addicting
