Tenex (guanfacine)

Guanfacine (brand name Tenex, and the extended release Intuniv) is an agonist of the α2A subtype of norepinephrine receptors. A psychiatric use of guanfacine is for treatment of anxiety, such as generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms. Alpha-2A agonists such as guanfacine reduce sympathetic arousal, weaken the emotional responses of the amygdala, and strengthen prefrontal cortical regulation of emotion, action and thought.

This has helped a lot. Blocks the nervous sweating. I used to sweat through clothes and now I only sweat under appropriate circumstances. Helps control impulses better too. The only downside is constipation but that could also be the anxiety. Ive always had trouble going to the bathroom.
