I can deal with anxiety through my CBT. I stay away from SSRIs. Xanax has been a miracle pill for me. I take anywhere from 1mg-2mg daily.
However recently I noticed I get itchty at night. So I emailed my gastro and he said, if the itching was from the liver, then it would be end stage with symtoms including jundice (yellowing of skin) which I do not have.
So just to be precautious he ordered liver panel (ALT, AST, ALP). I am so afraid the results with come back elevated and I will have to discontinue xanax.
Are there any alternatives for xanax that due not cause any harm to liver? My worse fears are public speaking, blushing at meetings and conversations with "hot" girls. Also I need something that can I take and be life of the party without blushing.
