I wanted to "Sparkle, Neely, Sparkle!" not take a nap!

So this isn't a panicked "what am I going to do. I'm POISONED" kind of thing. I know it's not that serious! I was just an idiot. I didn't have my contacts in yet, thought I took my 20mg of adderall so I could get started on my homework for today. Instead, of course I took my 1mg of Xanax. Not too worried about it but I take Xanax to put me to sleep. I have a ton of homework I'm supposed to get done today. I took some activated charcoal thinking that would help. Definitely feel the Xanax kicking in now, though. Can I take an adderall in an hour? I've got work to do! I can't be chilled out right now.

Should I Apply For Training Jobs If I Have Panic Attacks When I Train?

One of the primary roles in my last job was training. At some point I started having panic attacks when I began my training sessions, which was a cause of real distress in the moment, but also longer term as I was now worried about my ability to do my job. Now that my company has closed down, I'm looking for a new job, and I've become aware that I'm subtly discounting opportunities which involve training out of fears related to panic attacks. I really don't think I can afford to overlook these positions in the current job market, but my brain keeps imagining turning up at a new job and having a panic attack in front of a whole new group of people, and naturally things grind to a halt from there. Any thoughts, advice or previous experience would be most welcome; comprehensive history inside. [more inside]

Took a xanax without thinking while pregnant - what to do?

I am 9 weeks pregnant. I started having some bleeding and cramping, and it freaked me out entirely because I had a miscarriage before. I took a xanax (that I have in reserve for anxiety attacks, and almost never take). Then I found out that xanax is a schedule D drug for pregnancy (not recommended). Should I tell my doctor? Can I get it out of my system? I took it about an hour ago. [more inside]

Panic attacks. Taking many meds. Can I take a Xanax?

I have many health problems and I am on a variety of prescription and OTC medications, the most notable being Ambien, Atenolol and Notriptyline. My girlfriend has some Xanax and swears by the stuff. I recognize there is some risk of interaction, but it is reasonably safe to take an occasional Xanax while I'm taking these other drugs? (More info follows.) [more inside]

Drugs make my bipolar mom a shell of herself. She says it's worth it.

Extremely medicated mom: My mom has struggled with intense bipolar disorder for most of her life. She attempted suicide twice and has been hospitalized 3 times. For the past 3 years or so, medication has stabilized her moods, but at what appears to me to be a heavy cost. She's dulled and flattened to the point that she seems like only a small fraction of the person she was. It's hard for me to see her this way, but I don't know what I can do. [more inside]

Anxious about anxiety and anxiolytics...

I am on my way to an appointment tomorrow because I would like to do something about anxiety or stress response or whatever you'd like to call it. I am familiar with a lot of different anti-anxiety meds from my schoolwork, as well as things used off label. But my knowledge is more from the 'how the drugs work in the brain' side, vs. the clinical indications. [more inside]

OK to stop Lexapro after one dose?

I was just prescribed Xanax 0.5 mg, 3x daily and Lexapro 10 mg. once a day for major anxiety and sleeplessness. Took only the Xanax for 2 days and felt markedly better. Slept well, and the pounding heartbeat and breathlessness were gone. Added the Lexapro today and am feeling exhausted. I took a nap at 10:00 in the morning!. Called my MD, haven't heard back yet. Question is if I don't hear back by tomorrow morning is there a problem with stopping the Lexapro and just keeing up with the Xanax until (probably) Monday when I can get in touch with the doc? YANMD, etc.
