I have a question I was diagnosed with anxiety about 6 months ago and when my anxiety is high I display symptoms of depression, and ocd; but i was also diagnosed with adhd and i don't know if that is connected to my anxiety or not. So, my doctor has prescribed 10 mg of lexapro and 0.25 mg of the generic form of xanax. And I had some issues with getting my anti-anxiety because i had run out and by the time i needed it my doctor was on vacation. So, I was going a few weeks without my alpralozam and I could tell a big difference because I was on edge, irritated, and my ocd and depression was not good. But, I was able to get it today and after taking it I feel so much better and calmer and my ocd is very under control. And I am still working on learning how to calm myself down because when I am in a state of anxiety I can't think straight let alone remember how to calm myself down; which is why I'm going to look into yoga and see if that helps calm me down. But I'm worried because if I do like the yoga and it helps me it's only offered once a week so I wouldn't be able to do it everyday as well as knowing if the yoga is working if i take my alpralozam in the morning because I don't know if it's the yoga or the medicine that is calming me down. Then the question becomes do I still take my medicine if the yoga helps because it would only be once a week and what would I do the other 6 days because I went off the edge and had a meltdown last night because my anxiety was so bad and I didn't have any medicaiton and I feel a difference when I take it. So, if I can't find something to help with my anxiety do i just keep taking it for the rest of my life or if the yoga helps somewhat and if it's only once a week do i still keep taking my medicine because i feel like my brain just needs that little push and help to realize that everything is okay and to be calm; even if doing the yoga does help do I still take the meds just to make sure that even if i can't do it the other days that I am still calm and relaxed because i like not having to deal with my symptoms of ocd and then it also gives me that extra push because if i don't take it I don't want to go out and end up depressed.Because my parents said even in kindergarten they would have to prepare me a few days in advance if my teacher was going to have a sub, and before that when they tried to move me into an older classroom away from my younger sister I cried until they put me back in the classroom with my sister, and I also dealt with test anxiety during high school. So, I feel like I have always dealt with anxiety from a very young age in my life and i believe that I will always have it. So, my question is can you take anti-anxiety medicine for the rest of your life? What are your guys' thoughts?
