Doctors hate benzos and probably there is a reason for that. I've taken alprazoñam for more than 25 years and I'm still alive and functional

In my opinion, it's far better to take an alprazolam in the middle of a panic attack than to jump from a window.
Wow you’ve been taking for a long time. Is it still effective for you? I totally agree it’s far better taking a benzos then feeling death. Benzos has been the only meds that work fast and effective for me.

Yes benzos are still effective for me. I stopped taking benzos for a very long time. My anxiety was controlled by my antidepressants. But today I feel my antidepressants are not si effective as they were.

Benzos works the best. Too bad Drs. don’t like prescribing them. AD don’t work for me. I also take Propranolol but effects are mild. Good the alprazolam are still effective for you. My shrink told me after a while they lose their effectiveness and they cause more panic. She was giving excuses not to prescribe.

I take alprazolam for sleep and I try not taking it during the day. However yesterday and today have been extremely bad days for me and I had to take 1/2 alprazolam the afternoon.

Doctors are very reluctant in prescribing them. Ive never tried propanolol.

Propranolol works for lowering my racing heart when I’m anxious. It also brings my anxiety down a notch. Sorry your struggling. That sounds like me rn. Just waiting for med to work sometimes it takes up to 2 hours for the Propranolol to work. I didn’t take a Klonopin that’s only in extreme cases. Benzos do make you sleepy. But I would take sleepy over panic. Hope you feel better.
