I've found that taking a good dose of a quality fish oil in the a.m. helps. Then I eat something and take a multi high in the B vit. Then pure magnesium (not mixed with calcium). It really does help, and NOT just when you're hungover.

And I ask my friends..."doesn't it freak you out to feel like this", they tell me they just try not to dwell on how they are feeling! (Unlike all of us who suffer from anxiety problems---we dwell on everything!)
[QUOTE=moniqu1]Thanks for the tips...I will definitely try the vitamins and see how that works. I'm sure I dwell on how I'm feeling way to much, but sometimes it's just uncontrollable. I try not to, but my brain is automatically conditioned from being anxious all these years. Anxiety is a horrible horrible condition.[/QUOTE]

If you were the type that "dwelled on your feelings too much" you wouldn't be out having fun with your friends!! Your pals don't sound too supportive. Your brain is programmed that way because of experience. It's trying to tell you something. :)
[QUOTE=moniqu1]Does anyone get anxious/have a panic attack the day after drinking alcohol? I am not an alcoholic, just a social drinker with GAD and panic attacks. I went out with friends last evening and had a wonderful time...had drinks, dinner, danced, etc. Today, I am a little hungover and feel like I am on the verge of a major panic attack. I don't know why I get like this. I don't know anyone else who suffers like this after a night out. Just wondering if this is a symptom of the alcohol withdrawal??? Thanks so much for any input!![/QUOTE]


Boy, I'll tell you I'm glad I saw your post :) Back in the day I use to be able to put away a 12 pack of beer in one night, wake up the next morning feeling fine. Somewhere down the line I developed an anxiety disorder, and suddenly before I knew it two or three beers would give me an extreme panic attack the next day. I'm talking a HAIL MARY MOTHER MERCY attack! It scared the beejus out of me cause Anxiety CAN be a symptom of alcohol withdrawal and I thought oh my god I'm going to get the DT's (Delirium tantrums). Which at the same time didnt' make sense to me cause I never drank more than 1 or 2 nights a week, and usually you have to be drunk 24/7 to be at risk for the DT's. I also never had any physical symptoms of withdrawal (the shakes, the sweats) so that was also baffling to me why I was feeling so anxious. So, I asked my doctor about it, and he basically explained how anxiety sufferers are at an increased risk for major anxiety the day after a night of drinking.

So, I still enjoy the occasional good drink, but I definately have started drinking much more in moderation (which is probably a good thing).

Cheers and good luck
The only think that I can do to solve this problem is take xanax on that day after I drink. If anyone can think of something better please let me know. I know now that i am depressed the day after i drink and that it is from drinking, and it took me a while before i finally figured it out. I hate the feeling but I do enjoy hanging out with my friends and drinkin on the weekends.

I don't drink very often but when I do sometimes I get panic attacks so I also take Ativan the day after and that stops them within 10/15 mins...but I usually try and wait till I really feel bad before taking one.
