How can I stop anxiety ?

I ve dealt with anxiety for almost half a year now and its really bothering me. I thought I was going to have a heart attack one day because my chest hurt, but it turned out to be the cause of costo chondritis. However, the doctor also said I had anxiety. Since that day, I ve started to pay really close attention to my heart beat, and always find it hard to breathe only when i do pay attention to my breathing? How can I stop this anxiety problem? Also, my costo chondritis never healed, can that be causing the hard to breathe problem? I m 16 btw. ty.

so I took adapexin-p today for the first time to help me lose weight. It has Phenylethylamine, Glucomannan, Chromaxx (chromium picolinate), Raspberry Ketones, Evodiamine, Ginger Root, Caffeine Anhydrous,and vitamin B-12 in it. I was wondering if I could take 1mg of xanax to help me get to sleep as I am having unrelated anxiety. I just wanted to make sure they don t interact, please help.

I have been prescribed Atenolol for anxiety and am currently on paxil. I have been taking Atenolol for about a week. Is it ok to stop taking it, because I would rather take it when needed, if I feel nervous about something. Is it safe to stop after taking it for a week. Are there withdrawal symptoms.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
