Nov 24, 2019 · Best antidepressants for anxiety? And about to begin a benzo taper in Depression & Anxiety

I’ve mentioned in another thread that my psychiatrist cut Xanax dosage in half. That was three months ago. This past week at my appointment he said he wants me off of Xanax and ordered vistaril for anxiety and sleep. I dug back in my brain and remembered from nursing school that vistaril is used for hives/rashes/itching. It’s an antihistamine! Why can’t I try Benadryl instead of a Rx? Just wondering.

I enjoyed reading about John.
I’ve written about my doctor cutting my Xanax dose by half. Now he wants me off Xanax completely and use vistaril instead. Has anyone taken vistaril for anxiety? Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I’ve looked into Medicare advantage plans, and not one of my doctors is in network. That’s how rural it is. Now if I want to drive a couple hours to Tampa or Gainesville I’d have dozens of physicians to choose from.

Thanks for all your research! I’m not going to argue with my doctor about meds. Where I live, I would be dismissed from his practice if I challenged him. I know, find another doctor. There are two psychiatrists in my county, and I worked for the other psych doc for years, so I have no choice other than drive to another county. I’m doing better on the latest mix of antidepressants, so am not needing xanax as often. What I resent is that I had no say-so in the decision.

Same thing for me. I’ve been on the same dose of Xanax for many years. At my last psychiatrist visit he cut my dose in half. I was surprised and when I asked him why, he said there are new laws coming. I was concerned that cutting the dosage so drastically may cause withdrawal symptoms. He basically said too bad.

I forgot to mention that he immediately cut my Xanax dose in half.

I can so relate, had the same experience. I live in a rural area in Florida, there are two psychiatrists in my county. My first visit I was a mess, crying and could not stop. He never asked why I was so upset nor did he ask if I was suicidal. What?! He diagnosed me with OCPD without me ever saying a word! Gave me a book on it, adjusted my meds and said see ya in a month.
