Hello guys, it seems I am a struggling with my anxiety. I never had panic attacks before I got on Ritalin. My memory is somehow is still weak and I cannot remember the period before using. So I hope you guys can share your experience with anxiety. Is it normal to last 8 months? In early sobriety, I had panic attacks every day but then they became less and less. I tried cutting down on coffee and sugar. I exercise 5 days a week and attend at least 5 meetings a week. So Im just worried and I already discussed it with my doctor and she said there’s nothing wrong. I have abused benzos, opiates, alcohol and Ritalin along with my mom’s medication for schizophrenia (..stupid I know). So can drugs use leave permanent side effects?
