Common Questions and Answers about Anti anxiety drugs wikipedia


Avatar n tn If it were me I would probably continue taking the klonopin (for a short period) and get myself into some good psychotherapy to help address underlying issues. (Unless the anxiety is a result of a medication issue which one could perhaps expect to resolve itself with good treatment planning and management.) I personally wouldn't consider taking any other psychiatric med (unless it was indicated for another psych disorder, like bipolar for example). Headaches can be a challenge.
Avatar m tn There are some rare effects also like uncontrolled body movement and twitching which can be distressful. this is a anti anxiety/anti convulsant of benzodiazepine group and your doctor prescribed you once he deemed that the beneficial effect dominates the anticipated and possible side effects. I suggest that you consult your primary care physician for careful titration of the dose or an alternative drug in case the symptoms are distressing.
Avatar m tn Marijuana is neither stimulant nor depressant. It is a hallucinogen. This is a very common misconception amongst the populace. The reason people think it's a depressant is because it impairs your motor skills and slows the rate at which your brain processes information. The reason people think it's a stimulant is because it can increase your heart rate, but this is a common property of all hallucinogens, caused from either anxiety, sensory overload, or a mix of both.
Avatar m tn Okay, now I think I know what you are taking, sertraline, which in the states is Zoloft. Plus your Xanax equivalent. These are medications that are often prescribed for OCD, anxiety, depression. The sertraline can have side effects. What are you feeling like? I don't want to list side affects because I don't want you to start looking for particular one. :) How much Sertraline are you taking and how much alprazolam do you take during the day?
Avatar f tn Has anyone been on anti depressent for 25-30 years? What about anxiety medicine? Has anyone ever tried to get off of these drugs after that long, by their self?
Avatar m tn Can continuous anxiety, give you internal shakiness, brain fog, loss of memory, and an overall ill feeling most of the time?
Avatar f tn Paxiled, your information is almost quite good up until a point. Amitriptyline is indeed a tricyclic 'anti depressant', but it also has many other effects and uses too. The anti-depressant properties comes from its abilities to inhibit the reuptake of serotonin, (making it a serotonin reuptake inhibitor), but it also inhibits the reuptake of norepinephrine, which - whilst not fully understood - helps to regulate nerve pain from misfiring, or damaged nerves.

Avatar n tn 1mg is roughly equivalent to 10mg of Valium (Diazepam). All drugs have unwanted effects as well as therapeutic ones and mixing drugs will almost always carry a possibility of interaction. However, if this interaction is rare, your prescriber has presumably decided that the benefits of you taking Klonopin outweigh the risks. Yet again, you need to discuss this with your doctor. Good luck!

1131131 tn?1275108488 Hi, I recently was sent to the ER by my physican due to a reaction I was having from my celexa. I was having extreme anxiety, high blood pressure, sweating, tremors, shaking, etc. They had me stop the celexa. My doctor had me start Zoloft. I have been on it for six days and some of the same symptoms are starting again plus muscle tightness in the chest and throat. She told me to stop the zoloft. I asked if I should titrate it, but I was told to just stop it.
Avatar n tn It may have relieved his chest pain that was caused by tension. In order to receive anti-anxiety meds you may have to request them by name, such as Xanax, possibly along with an anti depressant, some of which have very good anti anxiety properties. The VA has some strange rules that require the doctors to prescribe drugs in a certain manner. For example, a person can't sleep. He goes to the the VA for help. Now we know that there are perscription sleeping pills that would make him sleep.
Avatar n tn ve taken it 10 years without a problem. All benzodiazepenes (anti-anxiety drugs in this class) have this potential but Klonopin is perfectly safe for long term use, in fact a lot safer than Xanax. It is true with myself that I had to increase the dosage a couple of times. Like any medication the dosage has to be titrated. And of course since its a medication that can be abused some people can become addicted but that would not normally happen when taken properly.
Avatar f tn ve learned it all passes no matter what in my PERSONAL experience. With or without drugs... anxiety passes. I personally think drugs make things worse for some people, like myself. That's why I'm staying clear and just doing talk therapy. Talk therapy has taught me a lot about UNDERSTANDING anxiety and how it works, and how the body works. It makes all my symptoms if I ever do go through anxiety, feel like they are nothing but just sensations. They can't harm me..
1187071 tn?1279369698 I have a question for those of you that can't take Anti-inflammatory drugs, my nerve dr wanted me to try them when I first started seeing him, it started with Nap and don't remember the rest and my knee is hurting so I don't want to get up lol Anyway I tried to take them for 3 days and they KILLED my stomache. It hurt so bad after taking them I just prayed it would stop. Is this why some can't take them?

Avatar n tn Hi, I posted a while back about having PVCs and flutters. After a 30 day event Moniter I was told that I have PACs, PVCs, and about 6,000 a day. That seems like a very scary number to me, but my cardiologist said it was still a low number. I have a lot of anxiety about this, and he prescribed me an anti-arrythmia drug to take as needed since I mentioned I'm feeling long runs of the palps happening on and off for hours sometimes. I'm already on a beta blocker.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm interested in long term effects (permanent damage to the body or the mind) of some heavy drugs. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but it looked like the most appropriate one on this forum. I could easily find much information about a few drugs (like cocaine, meth or MDMA), but couldn't find much on others (in particular LSD and heroin).
