Suggest a remedy for frequent anxiety disorder

Hi, i am suffering with anxiety disorder and am on medication for almost an year now. I am using paxidep cr 37.5. I was advised not to consume alcohol, however i did not follow it at all. I have been consuming alcohol on a daily basis along with the medication. If i dont consume alcohol for even a day now, i feel so anxious. I get severe headache and nausea. Kindly suggest how do i overcome my condition. Thanks.

Hello dear
Understand your concern
Please stop the alcohol or reduce the amount slowy.
I think you need psychiatric consultant and immediate treatment:
Advice for you:
Be relax first and be positive to quit alcohol

Relaxation therapy
Do not spend time alone
ReSpend time with friends and family
Cognitive behavioral therapy
Life style change: Healthy diet, adequate sleep, good company, excercise
Avoid alcohol, caffeine and smoking

Benzodiazepam: alprazolam
SSRIs: citalopram
Olanzapine and pregabalin

But it should be taken after consult to psychiatric.
And do not stop drug without consult the doctor.

Hope this may help you
Best regards
Dr. Sagar
