So I have been having some major anxiety in the past month, have had anxiety my whole life, been on and off anti depressants for 15 years and just recently started lexapro. So far it's been ok. Been taking Xanax for sleep which I hate. I'm just not a fan of the benzos on a daily basis. As needed I'm ok with but taking them every night makes me super tumired everyday and only helps for a few hours. My doctor today told me she wants me off the Xanax and to start taking trazadone at night for sleep and if I'm having any anxiety during the day or as need take propranolol. Has anyone took either of these medications? And if so what do you think about them? I really hate taking meds everyday. I have severe health anxiety and taking lots of different meds is not what I want, but i have cut out drinking alcohol and pot completely to get my head straight and now I just want to feel clear headed. But taking a bunch of meds makes me nervous. I don't drink a lot but used to smoke pot everyday for 15 years and haven't smoked for 3 weeks. So I am trying to take care of myself the healthy way but still anxious and I'm supposed to listen to my doctor and do what she says will help me, but stopping Xanax and trying new meds is scary for me bc I don't know what to expect and get nervous of any side effects. Any thoughts? anything would help. Thanks
