Hi,
I never loved being too far from home but my hbby and I are taking a trip to D.C(Washington). I am not fond of flying, hate being in small places and squashed. I also worry about panic attacks on the plane, basically anywhere on the trip. I have all the meds I just am getting freaked. We are on the West Coast, CA. Any med advice? Do I take my scheduled meds on Wash time or CA time?
Thanx confused
I am a Certified Doxie Lover(Weinerdogs)

Hi Sharann,

You should take your meds at the same time you are taking them now, so that would be on CA time.

Also, I noticed from another post that you take xanax as needed for anxiety.  I would suggest that you take one before you leave home to help settle yourself. I take this as well for my anxiety as needed and this is what I would do.

I hope you enjoy your trip. blush

I agree completely with Sukay, Sharann. Take the Xanax before you go so you're already calmer before you even get to the airport. That's a long flight. Try to sleep through some of it, if that's possible.

I hope once you're there you have a good time. Good luck!
