I recently had to come off of xanax because I became addicted to it. However, it worked so well for me. Vicodin and Klonipin have had no effect on my anxiety, which is very strong. Are there any alternative anyone has take that work? Also, I am bi-polar with severe depression and anxiety disorders

Hi Linnovak,
I too suffer from bipolar and anxiety most recently. I am on Ativan for anxiety and find it works. My Pdoc added Zopiclone 7.5mg too aide in sleep and also take Seroquel 200XR. I don't recommend Seroquel, as I've gained @ 20 lbs on it. Recently, I've been trying Latuda which is weight neutral to try and replace Seroquel. I take 750 mg of Lithium too. The thing is I think you have to try different things to make it work...keep trying. Ativan is addicting, but I can't forsee a future without it yet.
Keep on trucking...

Severe depression and anxiety may be better treated by therapy instead of drugs. At least that has been my experience. (My pdoc will not prescribe benzodiazepines for me). I have PTSD in addition to bipolar I and ADHD. But after being treated for PTSD, which is a form of anxiety, I am much more relaxed and my moods are more even.

I have Bipolar type 2, along with severe anxiety and(most recently diagnosed) PTSD. I take Propranolol 40mg twice a day for anxiety. As an added bonus, it also prevents symptoms of oncoming panic attacks. I really love it. I have been on it for a long time now(way over 2 years...thinking along the lines of a little over 3 years).
