Please help me stop shaking!!!
I've been suffering from SA since i was about 13 or 14 (i'm 24), and the main source of my anxiety has always been my shaking. This only used to be a slight trembling of my hands, but has now become more severe and spread to my head and voice. It all started with public speaking in grade school and now affects every aspect of my life. I had a pretty good control of it for a while, but lately it's becoming much wrose and it's all i can thing about in social situations. I'm really afraid i may have to quit my job soon if i can't find a solution for this.
The only things that have seemed to work have been Xanax and alcohol. I can't drink alcohol all the time for obvious reasons. If i take 2 or 3 .25mg Xanax, that will usually calm me down, but I'm fearful that if i start taking this everyday, I'll build a tolerance and then I won't have it to rely on any more.
My doc prescribed me Inderal (propanolol) 10mg to take 2x every day. It seemed to work well for a few weeks, and then all of a sudden it stopped working. Is it possible to build a tolerance to this or was the dose just not high enough?? Also, I've started Celexa 3 weeks ago, but so far i have yet to see any improvement whatsoever.
Can anyone please reccommend something i can take every day to reduce the shaking?? i feel like i'm running out of options, but I'm convinced there has to be something out there that will work.
