i recently been having horrible symptoms with anxiety, panic attacks, depression and flashbacks. I had very mild symtoms of anxiety (GAD), low self esteem and depression during my teen years and i believe subconciously, i started to self medicate with pot. It is the only thing that made me feel "normal", confident. Eventually i started experimenting with stronger drugs (ecstasy, coke) and that made my symptoms worse. Even though i was blazin everyday during this experimental period, i feel pot is not the cause of the problems, instead it kept my conditions at bay by slowly balancing me out. Eventually i did break down into a major depressive episode (via personal issues) and had to withdrawl from college. Ive taken zoloft, clonazepam and that helped with the depression. But worsened the anxiety/panic attacks. Im now taking Xanax and i think its helped me so much with the panic attacks as well as the constant thinking/worrying that is generalized anxiety disorder. I have a hunch that tokeing up a little (like 2, 3 puffs), makes me feel the xanax more. I dont wanna sound like a degenrate that wants to get more f*cked up, on the contrary i think that weed is a catalyst in balancing the nerotransmitters and in conjuction with xanax the combination is more effective 4 me. My Dr. prescribed clonazapam and zoloft together, maybe weed and xanax make a good team too. Anyone that has knowledge,insight, comments on poly drug use would be helpful.
