Hi there ~

Rebound anxiety when going off of medications that you have used chronically for overcoming anxiety, especially benzodiazepines as in your case, is very common. I would suggest that you try destressing by relaxation strategies. Yoga and pranayama have proven effectiveness in dealing with anxiety. It may also help to practice a routine and a regular physical exercise regimen. I hope this helps.

Take care.
