Anti anxiety medication generic

Common Questions and Answers about Anti anxiety medication generic


Avatar n tn The first script i was given was generic Ritalin and it worked very well... well enough to completely get off anti-depressants and for most of that anxiety to go away. But recently it seems that whenever the drug begins to wear off i start getting very anxious, not like the anxiety before but more like a side effect.
Avatar f tn It would be helpful to have at least the generic "anti-anxiety medication" listed under medications. I don't take xanax every day and it'd be useful to note how often I need to take it.
Avatar f tn I was hoping you might add "anti-depressant" to the treatment section. I'm currently taking Fluvoxamine (Luvox) so I'm using "prozac" as a stand in, but I think a generic option for anti-depressants, or SSRIs would be helpful.
Avatar f tn Once that rules out anything organic, then they truly need to help you with some anti-anxiety medication like Paxil (paroxetine is the generic name) or Prozac (fluoxetine is generic name), or Celexa (citalopram is generic name) or even Lexapro (escitalopram is generic name). Those are long acting anti-anxiety or anti0depressant medications. In addition to that, they should also give you a short term supply of some rapid acting anti-anxiety medication like Xanax, or Valium, or Ativan.
3183328 tn?1351183517 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. So I was wondering which did you have the best results with, do you think i should take a low dosage, and also, what side effects do they have.
Avatar m tn What is the least addictive, most free of negative side effects generic medication for general anxiety disorder?
Avatar f tn I'm planning on going back onto medication for depression and anxiety as it's got much worse since being pregnant. I think after your first trimester any defects people claim pills can cause are massively decreased because your baby is developed much more. Just go through all options with your doctor first and any cons of pills you may take. Ask to see a counsellor as well as that may help as well.
1110049 tn?1409402144 t react to a generic the way you did to a brand medication discuss this with your doctor or psychiatrist so they can document the concern so that you can receive coverage for the brand as generics are generally covered first within a health care provider's formulary. You can go to the website of your health care provider for more information as well.
460185 tn?1326077772 Thank you. Are they anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds? Do you prefer one over the other. Ryan said he wouldn't touch Cymbalta but can't remember why. I know. I'm senile.

230948 tn?1235844329 Hi Sam, clonazepam is generic for Klonopin and its a benzodiazepine drug, they are usually prescribed for anxiety and as an anti-convulsive. I have been on these kinds of drugs now for 15 years and they do help me with muscle spasms and pain. Be careful though with these, they do tend to sedate people and cause in some people addiction. I get really thirsty, and hungry with my med. Don't drive with them until you know how you are going to react to it.
Avatar f tn Xanax is a benzodiazepine, an anti-anxiety and anti-seizure medication that targets GABA receptors. Benzos act only for a short time, some longer, some shorter, while antidepressants work all day while you're on them. Both can be very hard to stop taking -- benzos are addictive, and Paxil is difficult to stop if you take it for any length of time because the brain has to readapt to working naturally when you stop an antidepressant (or a benzo).
1134609 tn?1269272200 ----From 2001-2006, it was a very good medication for me. I was just taking it for anxiety and was always on the brand name. Back then, I never had to take more than 600mgs of it and it worked very well. ---In 2006, the school pharmacy I was going through would only give me the generic version. It's all my school insurance would cover.
12182312 tn?1427683956 Hi. I am going to a rheumatologist very soon for a second opinion on lupus which I think I have. If I do, it has definitely affected me neurologically. I really, really do not want to take steroids if I don't have to. Anyone with neuro lyme on a non-steroid medication, and if so what is the name and does it help. Thank you very much...
Avatar n tn i have been suffering from major depression and anxiety for more than 6 months, i tried different medication but nothing helped but recently my doctor gave me new medication called sertraline and after 2 weeks of taking this medication i feel 70% better than before. my main symptoms have started to vanish and i feel like full recovery is just around the corner.
Avatar n tn No the antipsychotic is called Clozaril (generic name Clozapine). The anti-anxiety medication is Klonopin (generic name Clonazepam). Two totally different medications. You are on the correct medication.
Avatar m tn I had my right eye done last month and it has been great and i am due to get my left eye done in about 2 months when my right has finaly settled, however i have a anxiety disorder which i have had for 11months and i have been having a hard time lately, i have a appointment with my docter next week about talking about me going on medication, my question is if i am prescibed any medication i.e anti depressants or benzodiazepines will this have any effect on me getting my right eye laserd.
Avatar f tn I know that you stated that these did not work work for you in the past, however, when the second agent is added to them they become a very effective anti-anxiety/anti-depressant combinations. One other piece of information you need to have if you ever switch off of Paxil is that it is very possible that you can have withdrawal side effects, so hopefully your doctor will move the new one in as you slowly come off of it.
Avatar n tn But he gave me a 6 month supply of Escitalopram (Lexapro) instead of Citalopram. Escitalopram is just the S enantiomer of citalopram, and apparently has better anti-anxiety effects. Today I finished my previous stock of Citalopram. Unfortunately, my doctor here near my flat is on holiday, tomorrow is All Souls Day which is a holiday too. The next appointment I can get is probably next week. Is it okay to switch to Lexapro? I mean, I have no other choice as of now.
3166043 tn?1514260018 I've been wondering since I got out of the hospital after my suicide attempt why they put me on propananol (I think it's called that) I searched it and apparently it's for blood pressure? I remember them monitoring my blood pressure for the first few days in the hospital because they said when I had panic attacks my blood pressure went up. I was in such a panic when I was admitted they gave me Ativan to put under my tongue and I passed out for 16 hours.
Avatar f tn Im on medication for depression and anxiety. Also occasionally I have a sedative in case I go bizzercerz. Would that hurt my child more than stress would?
1110049 tn?1409402144 Hello there, There is no major difference between Effexor, Efexor, Trevilor, Alventa. The chemical in it is Valafaxine in all the pills. The difference between XL and non-XL is that XL means extended release. It delivers the chemical in your body more slowly so you get the same benefits without maybe having some unwanted side effects. The result of a lower peak plasma concentration. There is no difference between XL and XR they both mean extended release.
Avatar m tn I'm 18, I'm clinically depressed and right now take about forty mg of fluxoteine (generic prozac). My psychiatrist has been trying to help me find something that might help me fall asleep, we've tried what she said was basically all of the sleeping medications, to anti anxiety/muscle relaxants, to now anti psychotics to see if those might bring me to be sleepy. Has anyone had luck with a sleep facility or anything?
