I take Ativan.  Just for occasional anxiety. You can take 1/2 of your Xanax.

I used to take Klonipin (not sure if that's spelled right). It worked great for me, but the side effects were a little heavy the first week, then I got used to them.

Try cutting your Xanax in half. After a panic attack, I took Ativan but it was too strong for me. I switched to Xanax and cut them in half. I was on them for a few weeks while a lot of stressful things were going on.

Xanax.

Only when it's really bad though.. Because the next day I won't remember a damn thing after I took it.

stay hydrated, no caffine, deep breathing at least once a day, journel, exercise, plus try to find out the root of your anxiety, then you can start fighting it

I only take an herbal supplement called St Johns Wort, which helps with mild depression and anxiety.  I use it primarily for depression or on days I am feeling tense.  I also take Relora, which is another herbal supplement, which helps block the stress hormone, cortisol.

No I don't take this med. I do have my attacks but it's only when someone say something to hurt my feelings or really make me stress out.
