Psychiatry 36 years experience
Alprazolam: Is a short acting benzodiazepine, a sedative lasting up to 4-6 hours in your body, but depending in the amount and time consuming it, you may have withdrawal symptoms or oversedation some time after taking it. It has a considerable risk of addiction to it due to tolerance and that persons will take more than is indicated without noticing. It causes short and long term memory problems.
Dr. Michael Simpson
Clinical Psychology 24 years experience
Learn skills first: It depends if you have the skills to reduce your physiological arousal (anxiety) and replace your intrusive negative/scary thoughts. It would help to work with a trained professional and set up a program that will aid you in your goals. This is one of many great sites that have information to get you started. http://www.anxietybc.com/
