140622 tn?1190102529 What do you guys take (besides anti-depressants) for the insomnia, anxiety and the feeling that you want to argue and everybody pisses you off? My doc gave me a 0.5mg prescription for Xanax which really helps..quite frankly I don't care if it's addictive, I checked the withdrawal symptoms and it said "Flu-like symptoms", so who cares? What's a few more days or a couple of weeks of that? It can't be as bad as treatment. If it will help me get through this hellish treatment I'll take it.
Avatar n tn Well I reside in Australia and I have found that anti-psychotics are being used to treat anxiety. I was seeing a therapist and was shocked to hear her preach so calmly that anti-psychotics are given to people with anxiety and the manner in which it was said was that it was totally safe. The trend apparently for anxiety apparently is to treat it with a SSRI and if no success there, then Zyprexa and Seroquel is given .
3183328 tn?1351187117 What's your opinion on anti anxiety medication? I've been going out more but I have a hard time getting in the car, then I have a hard time getting out. And I freak out. I'm seeing a therapist, and she said it's all up to me. She has anxiety too and she takes medication.

Avatar f tn Once you start treatment and feel like you need something speak with your doctor as soon as possible about starting and AD or anti-anxiety medication. Laboratory Tests HCV-RNA levels should be monitored at weeks 4 and 12 and as clinically indicated. Use of a sensitive real-time RT-PCR assay for monitoring HCV-RNA levels during treatment is recommended.

Avatar m tn I have suffered depression all of my life, feeling sad as far back into childhood as I can remember. I spent many, many years self-medicating (alcohol+drugs). I know for me, I have tried 16 different anti-depressants and other than the ones that gave me severe nausea and the ones that made me feel like a walking Zombie (Effexor, Seroquel and Olanzapine), the others did nothing.
3867523 tn?1348953285 clinical depression (,either from a possible side effect of the treatment drugs) or not are two completely different issues. Not everyone has issues with depression when on HCV treatment. Actually the majority,especially someone that doesn't seem to have problems with clinical depression in the past. It is not recommended for those patients that "do not" have issues of pre -treatment depression ,to start an AD prior to treatment.
Avatar n tn Initially this will be uncomfortable but with time the acupressure will do wonders. Use an analgesic cream or spray. Anti-inflammatory drugs help. A good physiotherapist can teach you some exercises which will help you a lot. A MRI of the cervical spine may be required. Please consult a neurologist. The treatment is to remove the compression.
Avatar m tn primarily used for short-term anxiety treatment. Not very sedating and not addictive at all. 3. A benzodiazepine (xanax, valium, librium; psychoactive anti-anxiety drug): primarily for short-term anxiety relief. Benzodiazepines are very fast-acting, but can be highly addictive. I would not even recommend benzodiazepines except that you intend to use medication for short-term relief. They can be very addictive. Of these, I would try either xanax or librium.

Avatar f tn I went on treatment for 7 months, and during it I experienced depression and severe anxiety and panic problems. Prior to treatment I had never had these problems. I am 20 years old and got Hep C from a blood transfusion when I was born. I stopped treatment in Jan 08. After a few months I felt normal, like I did before treatment, but lately I have been having similar problems with depression, not as severe but still there and interfering with my life. Is this left over from treatment?
Avatar f tn These are strong powerful drugs that many people while not need as a result of doing treatment. Good luck..

Avatar m tn I really sympathise with you my friend and also commend you for dealing with it by yourself However I think you are very wise to get yourself checked out as it can dominate your life as it did mine I exercise and practise Yoga and deep breathing but was given an anti anxiety Med. by my Psychiatrist to use on 'as needed basis'.
Avatar f tn My job is tedious and requires organization and I am scared if I go back to early they will fire me for incompetence. Please keep in mind, I started this treatment with a General Anxiety Disorder that had been under control for 4 years or more. I now have a Panic Disorder, social disorder, and generally a broken type A brain. Am I alone?
Avatar n tn I am recently diagnosed and haven't started treatment yet. However, I have anxiety just with having this darn disease.
Avatar n tn I just ordered "Serenity," an all natural anti-depressant and anti-anxiety supplement. Do these really work? Is there anything in any of them I should be worried about? I have heard of Amoryn as well, I am going to give them a try because I have GAD, and my anxiety is now developing into obsessive thoughts and mild to moderate depression, but I do not want to go on any prescription medication. I would love to hear what anyone has to say about this, thanks.

717440 tn?1292747342 To think of it, I think it started after I quit smoking pot. (yay, me!!) I've never known myself to have anxiety, but then I realized that I don't really know what anxiety is. Can anyone explain it to me? How does anxiety make you feel? All I know is that I stay up much later than before, with my mind going a million kilometers an hour with all the wrong things going on in my life. I've decided to try going to bed tonight with my headphones on so I can think of other things instead.
Avatar f tn I know you said you were against medication, but I actually was an introvert myself in junior high until I started taking anti drepressents and anti anxiety medication, and it is like it opened up new doors for me, literally and figuartively speaking. It allowed me to cope with things and be the person I am really supposed to be. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Since the title of your post was withdrawal from anti-anxiety drugs, I can respond to that. Since you have not been on those drugs since last year, you are no longer withdrawing from them. They are out of your system and your body has adjusted. On the other hand, I have panic disorder, and I take Klonopin for it. For a short while, I switched to Ativan, and then back to Klonopin. I recall the withdrawals were fierce from Ativan, but only lasted about three months. I'm still on Klonopin.
