Taking Oxytocin, Xanax. Has anxiety, increased heartbeat. Due to which medicine?
My wife is on oxytocin 10 mg twice a day however she is trying to get off the drug so she is only doing once a day. She is also taking two pills of xanax at night. The Xanax only allows here to sleep 2 to 3 hrs at night. She is having high anxiety during the day that has her heart at high speed. She was thinking of changing the time that she takes the Xanax to 5 or 6pm to try and counter act the high anxiety. She is not sure which of the medicine is causing her great fear and anxiety. She is jumping around like a live wire but has fear that the Xanax will increase her anxiety. What can you recommend?
Xanax is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression. Sometimes, it is recorded that Xanax can have confusion, hyperactivity, agitation, hostility, hallucinations; as side effects.
You should see your psychiatrist immediately and tell him the fact and don't take your own decisions.
It is well known fact that anxiety and panic attacks cannot be cured only with the help of medication. But it can be well managed with the help of meditation, yoga and psychotherapy. Meditation and yoga can streamline your metabolism and thought process and psychotherapy streamlines your living style and condition.
