I'm also a student with anxiety and so I know how you feel. That is why I started Nardil in the first place. However, my anxiety sounds like it's much more of a problem for me than yours is. Benzos definitely work in those situations that make you anxious, but they are just a short term fix and probably will not help with procrastination. Also, speaking as a student who took benzos while I was in school, my personal opinion is to not take them. They seemed to affect my school performance negatively and when I took them for anxious moments like discussions with my professors and presentations, etc, I found they made me too relaxed and I ended up being too out of it to make a good impression (although all anxiety was gone).
Like I said, this is my personal opinion. I suggest upping your Nardil dose if you think you can handle it. Although depression responds at 45mg, from what others say, anxiety isn't alleviated until about 60-75mg.

Jasmine @>-->-- (I just upped Nardil to 60mg today because 45 was doing nothing for my anxiety)
