All I can say is WOW WOW WOW. Thank you so much for sharing this. Yes, I have GAD and have for most of my life. It really got out of control when I got an inner ear infection that had me so dizzy for months on end that I could barely function. I was put on Ativan to help "clean up" the dizzies and to control the anxiety/panic. Boy, it worked so well and I felt on top of the world. But fast forward 18 mos and I wasn't feeling so good anymore. Depression, apathetic and major brain fog. I tapered off the drug over 17 mos and have been off for 2 mos now. I am back feeling "unbalanced" but handling OK, I guess. I am not anxious about it. My face and eyes are numb now. I've been told this may be a protracted WD symptom from the Ativan or do you suppose it could be another form of anxiety?

What do you guys take, if anything, for your anxiety? I am afraid of the SSRI's and some of the horrible side effects. I did try Lexapro for 1 month and was too sedated during the day to know if it helped or not.

Wishing every a happy, calm, holiday. :wave:
