Recently when I let myself get worked up/stressed/anxious, I end up having a very physical reaction to stress and anxiety. My heart feels like its beating out of my chest and I feel short of breath. After experiencing this for 4 consecutive days (and thinking it was Covid) a Dr prescribed me Vistaril. This was about a month ago and I have taken it 3 times to help settle my chest/mind/heart when I feel I am having an anxiety attack. It has definitely helped, but now I am wondering if it’s time for me to get on a daily anti anxiety medication to prevent these “attacks” from happening in the first place. I feel like any time I let myself get worked up I and then add alcohol in the mix, I end up feeling like this. I have been more conscious of drinking after having a stressful/anxious day or week, but I don’t want to have anxious weeks. And at this point I find it very difficult to control it on my own. Please respond with what anti-anxiety daily medications have worked for you! Open to natural remedies as well. And yes, I do take Ashwagandha daily 🙂
