So I suffer from anxiety. But I am also a recovering alcoholic. The only medication that helps me when I have a panic attack or an anxiety attack is Xanax. I never abuse it. A 30 day supply can last me for 3 months because I only take it when I need it. I have never felt that it was addictive for me. But my thearapist refuses to prescribe me Xanax because she says that it works in the same way that alcohol does and she does not want me to depend on Xanax. She wants me to try Busbar. But I do not want another medication that I have to take daily. I just need something for when I actually need it. I find it very frustrating that therapists always think that they know what’s better for you than you do, and I cannot stress enough to her that she is hindering my mental health recovery. Wondering if I should change therapists. Anyone else go through this?
