Hello. I really haven't seen any sleep specialists making responses in the last few months, so I will change the tag to psychiatry so that you may get more responses. Xanax (alprazolam) is a dangerous drug. Many providers have elected to stop prescribing the fast acting form. One can easily develop a dependence on it. There have been deaths due to people coming off it quickly. Even though it is sedating it can seriously alter your sleep architecture which will prove problematic in the long run. Have you considered medical acupuncture to assist with sleep?
Frankly, I don't prescribe xanax (alprazolam) for insomnia and I try to steer clear of it for anxiety when possible. ...Read more

Fight & flight: In response to a perceived threat, Epinephrine prepares your body to fight with or flee the predator/other aggressor.

It's adaptive acutely, but not chronically. ...Read more

I've been taking Effexor (venlafaxine) for three weeks and am getting an "adrenaline rush" feeling. Is this a temporary side effect, or likely not to go away?

My epinephrine levels are less than 10 and it says the normal range is 10-200. What could this be?
Is epinephrine only secreted for the "fight or flight" response or it only gets higher during the "fight or flight"?

As a surgeon, an Epinephrine secreting tumor in the adrenal gland, a pheochromocytoma, is an interesting and sometimes challenging problem. Good luck. ...Read more

Healthy energy levels allow the stress hormones you mention (plus others) to only be called upon for emergencies. Myriad reasons for poor energy can call upon those hormones for everyday things. This gets you through for awhile but taxes the body in many ways and wears those glands out. Good link: http://www. Createvibranthealth. Com/services/adrenal-regeneration/
