JustAnotherNut Posted August 25, 2005 Share Posted August 25, 2005 Hi there! I have been experiencing both anxiety and severe anxiety-attacks for several months now after a few months on the wrong epilepsy medication. A long story that I won't get into... Now I have begun therapy twice a week to cope with and get rid of my anxiety, and as a part of this my psychiatrist has found it useful for me to stop taking Valium, or any other benzo for that matter. I have no objections to this, since I have been feeling a bit tired and "foggy" and want to get off pills. (Except for the 1200 mg of Tegretol I have to take to keep the epilepsy at bay...) But his method is absolutely contrary to every piece of advice I have found anywhere. He wants me to switch from Valium to Xanor (The Norwegian version of Xanax.) And he even meant I should be taking the same amount. 15mg of Xanor per day!!! Is he nuts or is there any sense in this at all? Have the best day you possibley can! H.
