|Subject: ||RE: Anyone use Xanax/Klonopin/Benzos to treat anxiety with running?|
Whatever you do, DONT take it within 8-10 hours of a race, it will make you sluggish and sleepy. I have a Xanax prescription and only take it as needed for sleeping problems. I would take 1/2 the night before a race to get sleep. Once I made the mistake of taking one at night around 10 and the race was early, like 8AM...on the starting line i literally felt like i could go to sleep, sure my nerves were gone, but so was my adrenaline and desire to race. Ran terrible...Only take it early the night before a race.
