I have had mild to severe panic attacks for about 10 years on and off. I go through periods, years, where I don't have any. The last few years they have been worse and I see a therapist, take 150mg of Effexor daily (have been for years) and PRN Xanax. I barely use the Xanax. I feel like I should start using it more often instead of suffering but my experience has always been when it gets bad enough, take a Xanax, go to sleep and wake up with it over with. The Xanax is a very low dose..but still puts me to sleep. I will stress for days about specific situations that will be taking place such as the holidays which are very hard for me. Should I be thinking about using the Xanax and staying awake during the day to not get so sick to stomach and panicky about the situations that haven't even happened? Just curious if anyone has any advice. This is my first post in the discussion since I joined about 2 wks ago. Thanks!
