  • Yea, it is a small dose, but I manage it better with breathing, journaling, etc. I do take multiple pills during trigger events- when my DD has surgeries, for example.

  • nothing, but i probably should be taking something as my anxiety inhibits me in a lot of ways from living life to the fullest.

  • I've taken Ativan for sleep but never anxiety. I take xanax for highly stressful situations like the dentist or getting on an airplane. I was prescribed 1 mg at first but that knocked me out.

  • I take 1mgs of Xanax twice a day and 30mgs of Buspar a day for my anxiety. My other meds can help a little for.anxiety ,but those are just for my anxiety.
