I'm basically posting because after been severely anxious since a child, I've gradually gotten worse, and constantly find new sources of anxiety. I've been on treatment for the last 2 months, setraline antidepressants and was also recently prescribed diazepam. The diazepam helps, but I feel that I need a higher dosage, I'm aware that I can't take them long term, and was wondering if anyone else suffering from an anxiety disorder knows of any medicines that act like benzos that I cant actually take long term? If not, what medicines do you take to cope? I really can't cope with the way I think and feel any longer and am desperate to get rid of it. I have a mixture of anxiety issues, including the generalized anxiety disorder, as well as panic attacks and phobia disorder that all overlap into my problem and my anxiety can jump from on thing to another, ie terrified that my hair will fall out, terrified that people dont like me, that i'm a bad person, smells, i hear things, when i'm highly stressed I start to feel as though my skin is crawling and I'll convince myself that spiders are all over me. Sounds can also drive me crazy and Ive recently started exhibiting compulsive tendencies. Please help me.
