I believe xanax to be an on-the-spot/at-the-moment type of med. On the other hand, Paxil or Zoloft is a consistent med in your system to combat these anxiety/social symptoms and they also treat depression. LIke xanax (although I've heard some addictive problems with that med) I feel great on klonopin, but it is a valium on-the-spot med that I don't think I would want to take every day as my tolerance may increase, etc. That is what the paxils and zolofts are for - to consistently balance your unbalanced chemicals in your brain that cause the social anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I don't really have much depression, but if my hormones and chemicals were not in place thanks to the zoloft, I would become depressed so it's a cure-all for me.
My very best to you on your upcoming nuptials and I hope my information helps you so as not to worry on your special day - this is the last thing you should worry about on that special day!!!!!!
What I find about me is that I am totally anxious before an event and possibly after....but during the event, I find myself to be fine....I know that it is hard to do, but you cannot focus on your anxiety...hopefully you will be so busy that day, there will be nothing more to do but enjoy it!!!
