I have high blood pressure and frequently experience unexplained bp spikes with rapid heartrate. I think these events _cause_ my anxiety, not the other way around. My doctor wants me to think about trying an anti anxiety med for a bit to see what happens with my bp.

I'm not real keen on taking more drugs than I have to, especially ones which are addictive.

So are there any anti anxiety drugs out there that are not addictive?
Gosh, there are none that I know of. If I needed something to try and calm me down I would try meditation and prayer. If I still could not get my heartrate to slow down, I would make an appt w/ a contemporary med doctor, such as an internal med doc who specializes in addiction. A reg doc will not know if something is addicting or not.

Goodluck and Im glad you asked about this! Better to ask now then when it's too late.
