Have you ever tried Kratom? My brother is on SSI for social anxiety I recently introduced him to Kratom which is legal in all but 3 states. He said it made him more relaxed than benzos. It's cheap too. You can order it on the web just look for trusted vendors which are posted. I would recommend getting a pill maker Amazon and vegetable 000 pills.The taste is horrible, but some people mix it in their yogurt.  It's worth a try.

I'm not going to recommend any benzos cause you can get addicted very easily. And the detox is hell. I've been there.

 

I have major anxiety issues too and take Zoloft 150mg/day which helps a bit. I think the best medicine you can take at the moment is to talk with a  psychotherapist. I have seen many over the years. And while the physical feelings of anxiety are real, they usually start with an unlikely or negative thought that will probably never happen but you somehow convinced yourself it will. Learning to change these thoughts when you have them will help relieve the anxiety attacks faster. This type of therapy is call cognitive therapy and it does work but you have to train your mind and thoughts to think of positive things and tell yourself the thought you are having at the moment is just not going to happen.

 

If you're real honest with your doctor and therapist they will prescribe something to help. Try not to take it everyday and if you have to only use the minimum dosage and try to take a break for a week every few weeks.

Hey Art!

Yeah, I second and third what my learned friends above have stated!.. Benz0s are alright little and often and only in the extremely short term!.. In fact, my advice would be, if you can live your life without opening the Benz0 door, then do so!...

They are not a viable option for long term treatment of anxiety... In fact, eventually they'll make your shit ten times worse?.. It sounds like you've already got a lot on your plate?.. And benz0 withdrawal is an extra mother fucker of a problem you really don't need?!..

I wish there was an answer to your question, as many of us are seeking the same thing you are ; )

Also, I can totally empathise with your current situation? I have also tried every SSRI/SNRI out there?!.. Most of those I would also vehemently avoid?!..

Have you tried any kind of therapy?

Hope you are ok?

~P~

I never heard of a psychotherapist? I will deff look up one and cognitive therapy. I know what your talking about iv tried to think positive thoughts but im weak minded. Also when some of the stuff i have anxiety over is real things in my life that make me feel like crap, example.. Im out of work right now and in my mind i feel like a bum. All my friends are going to college and doin all these great things and im at home scared to go anywhere with no job, no ambition. I was never like this, i loved to do things and my social anxiety was improving until i got addicted to opioids. Now im on suboxone and hav no life whats so ever. My friends come ovr and try to get me out of the house but i have my father answer the door and say im not in right now. Its crazxy... Im crazy. Im in this hole and im deep and cant figure a way out. I haven't used in 2years well besides subs.

Yes I'm going tell you this and hope it helps you out some try to do something everyday like a short walk etc and work your way back into the things . You seem to be at that age we all got hit with stress and bang your mind starts freaking and instead of doing something you do nothing and next day you wished you went out with your friends. I have a family member graduates Nyu few years ago and can't get a job because of fears and her friends all got the best jobs. I'm the one who has to tell other in family that never had anxiety that it sucks so just keep her trying to land a job and she'll be fine.

I got anxiety in late 20 and couldn't sleep,but needed to operate machinery everyday and it was dangerous so I seen doctors and finally psychiatrist was on large doses of benzos and as I got some sleep and went out with friends I be off the meds till something happens and now after doing a major benoz w/d .I try to not take but a min dose my doc gives me to sleep many...I get a few extra from vendor here for emergency ...Hey good work on going straight and be happy have some fun laughing is the best medicine..Good luck and remron,helps sleep and anxiety..

To answer your question, everyone is different. For me, the best (and only) solution is xanax. For my wife, Klonopins work best. Like the guy before said, benzo use is a VERY slippery slope. But we believe in better living through pharmaceuticals in my household. Therapy, long walks, and cute furry bunnies might help, but the only way to make the bad feelings go away NOW, is to just suck it up and take that pill.

I realize that mentality is what got me hooked in the first place, but its true. If you really want relief, I would suggest trying low doses of different benzos. Thats what they make them for

My father and I had the same psychiatrist. He had me on 3mg of xanax a day. In October of 2011, my dad shot himself in the head. When I went to the shrink, he asked me how I felt, wrote me a 90day script for xanax, then promptly mailed me a letter informing me that he couldn't be my doctor anymore. 

I never went to a shrink again. Hopefully that horrible man will die slowly and painfully. But I digress. Psychiatrists are dope pushing pieces of shit that care about nothing but their fat wallets. I would rather eat shit than support one of of those filthy whores.

Benzo's are just as addicting as pk's if not more. Try to get a pk these days.

I think a therapist would be better since they cannot prescribe meds.
