So my question is how do you deal with both? Becuz for years i am conflicted betweem of them theu both make feel even more down than usual
Xanax kills breathing centers in your brain. FYI.....
Hate to say that I deal with both by taking medication. The summer and spring months aren't that bad but when it gets dark all the time in the winter and I cannot go out that much, I get depressed. So, for that I am prescribed a low dose of Zoloft. I guess it works (who knows)!! For anxiety at night when I feel like I cannot breathe and I am wearing my bi-pap and things are closing in on me, I take a Xanax. I know people say I should not take that much medicine but why did they make the drugs if they don't want people to use them. I don't abuse them and I feel much better after I take them. Hang in there. If you cannot take medication, try deep breathing, coloring, listening to music. that would help me sometimes. PH members hang in there!!! We will survive
Just take one day at a time. There will be ups and downs. Praying for you.
