I think it depends on your level of anxiety. I take two medications, one is quick acting - klonopin (there is a generic) and one is for long term.
I once got hooked for a while on 60mg a day of valium which I got half of my doc, and the other half off black market. I ended up totally pissed as i hardly felt anything with them, but if I didnt have them, I couldnt leave the house and became agorophobic. I owned up to my doc, told him the situ, and he agrred to ween me off over 8 weeks to get me down to 4x2mg a day. Then for another 4 weeks, bring this dose right down until i finally stopped. Physically it was easier than i expected, but mentally it created huge panic issues, GAD, dysphoria and finally mania when i stopped altogether.
eerybody is defferent but i think xanax works best ( for me atleast).
Au Natural is the way forward.
