Alprazolam is generic for Xanax. It's fast acting but does'nt stay in your system for long.Maybe 4 to 6 hours. So, it's a great med to take if you have panic attacks every once in awhile. If you have anxiety all the time, GAD in other words, a longer acting med might be better for you.
what is GAD? the doctor prescribed propranolol but i dont know how it will work or how i will react to this pill.
General Anxiety Disorder. It's when you feel anxious all the time. Not just when you have a panic attack. I'm not familiar with Propranolol, but I'll do some research on it for you.
Also known as Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Sorry about that.
I did look up Propranolol and it's a beta blocker to help keep your heart rate down. It is also used to treat anxiety.
Over 8 years, i lost count of the meds I tried for anxiety. The top four benzo, altering doses as needed. I also was a medication aide for people like me and had to administer anxiety meds as needed for others at a group home I worked at. Currently I am getting 90 valium a month, three a day as needed. Does it work? Honestly, I don't think so, but I am sure it prevents escalating or has some unknown benefit. Valium is a long lasting benzo, Short stuff won't protect a job. Marijuana has yet to fail me.
