Anyone suffer from anxiety?

I suffer from anxiety and have for a very long time. Lately it has been really bad. My doctor just upped my dose of Xanax and told me to take it twice a day. I normally only take it occasionally. The same thing happened before I got pregnant with my DD and the severe anxiety went away when I was pregnant. I'm just so worried about taking the Xanax. I'm 3DPO now and I'm going to take it as long as I need it until I get a BFP. Anyone else dealing with anxiety issues??

I do and quit taking my meds for it. Ive heard it can have negative effects ttc. I was on celexa and Xanax. Mine is mostly social and "test" anxiety.

I'm only on 1mg twice a day now. It was 0.5mg three times a day which I never took. I just took it when needed. But I think I need to take it daily. The palpitations are getting bad. I'm so glad I'm not alone.

It is so scary sometimes. I can remember being a child and having a panic attack and thinking I was having a heart attack and was going to die.

I think right now I need to control the anxiety until I get my BFP. Too much stress isn't good either. Damn why does this have I be so hard?

I think each of us has to decide what is right. And you're right- too much stress isn't good. I don't have it bad. My husband has really bad anxiety over everything. If I had his anxiety I don't know if I'd be able to handle not being on meds. We all know what we can handle and what we can't. You have to do what is best for you. Sorry if I came off saying something else. I was mobile and I hate responding mobile. lol

I hope it gets better for you!
