From last few months i am facing a very fast pulse rate about (100 +) and a mild chest pain. I consulted a cardiologist and undergo every checkup he advice. But in the result, everything was normal. Later the doctor diagnosed that it is because of anxiety disorder and suggest me to consult my physician. So as per his advice i consulted my local physician(in India). He also confirmed that the chest pain and raising pulse rate is because of Anxiety. He suggested me half of (Alprazolam) Anxit tablet 0.25 mg before sleep at night. Now it seems everything normal. I am taking this for the last one week. Is there any serious side effect for taking this tablet. How long he may advice me to take this tablet for a short time or life time, The current advice is to take that for 2 weeks and consult him back. Also is there any natural remedy to cure this Anxiety disorder. Please help.View Thread
