Thank you so much! That was very informative! I really appreciate it.
After many times of starting and stopping, I think it's obvious to myself that I'll be one of those who need medicine for the rest of my life. But that brings me back to my anxiety. I'm only 33. That's a long time. And there's no proof that it would cause damage to your body by taking it for so many years continuously? I prefer fluoxetine. It helped with anxiety, depression, and OCD. I do have a bottle of adivan on hand from earlier this year. I haven't taken one since January. I took one last night to help me calm down and sleep. It worked great. First time in over a week I didn't wake up in the middle of the night full of anxiety and unable to get back to sleep. I don't want to make a habit out of that, though.
