Alprazolam For Anxiety?

Alprazolam For Anxiety?

Hi all.
I have been suffering from severe anxiety the last while and my GP told me to try Xanor SR for a few days to see if it works. I have read a lot of negative stuff about it. I have tried rivotril and urbanol and ativan and they all just knock me way out. BUT I am getting panic attacks and need to do something.

Any advice is appreciated!

CBD oil helps with my anxiety. I had taken prescription meds for it but now the oil is all I need.
