I have been anxious about the situation at work when the topic of substance abuse gets mentioned I get visibly anxious giving people the impression that I have substance abuse probplem. I was prescribed activan for panic and anxiety disorder for long time, and was able to reduce the daily dosage of 4mg to .75mg. I am working last .75mg which is really difficult to manage. I know I am not abusing any drug but I don't know why I am feeling so guilty about taking the medication. I think our society is really harsh about people who are on psychotropic medication and I am being influenced by societal attitudes. When I think through logically, I am really proud of the fact that I not only managed the anxiety condition but was able to reduce the medication to current dosage by myself. I am afraid that people may suspect that I have problem with substance abuse problem. Any insights anyone?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
