Common Questions and Answers about Anti anxiety medication herbal


Avatar f tn I think I've made this too confusing. I'm just wondering about the best over-the-counter anti-anxiety medication available. That work quickly. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you. :) (I'm a minor, by the way. 16. If that matters, which I'm assuming it might, because I don't know what I can and can't buy from Walgreens at this age.

1669548 tn?1318792334 Hi All, I'm curious to hear from anyone else who practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for their anxiety, and how effective it may be long-term without medication- I've been using CBT for about 2 years, and it's been a godsend as far as reducing the severity and frequency of debilitating anxious moments, but I still feel that my baseline anxiety level is higher than it could be.
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.
Avatar n tn Have had multiple tests all normal with the final diagnosis of anxiety. I attempted to go on an anti-anxiety medication and tried for 2 days. I was so out of it, aggitated and total loss of control. The side effects could last up to 2 wks and I wasn't willing to try another day. I have Ativan only as needed and I am so afraid to become addicted to it, I think I have used it 3 times total. I am talking with a counselor and find that talking with a close friend or family member helps.
203342 tn?1328740807 It did nothing for me) and one who gave me an anti-anxiety medication, which I took one time and threw them away because the room was spinning and I felt like I was going to fall. I am not interested in taking drugs. I am interested in more natural remedies and learning how to deal with it better. I think doctors are just too quick to hand out the drugs as a pat answer for everything. I don't want to take drugs. I don't like drugs. I barely ever take Tylenol.
439522 tn?1214954789 Now that you are up to 20mg of Lexapro, you may find you feel a little better also. Lexapro does have some anti-anxiety properties in it, but doesn't have enough to stop anxiety attacks in their tracks. Usually a doctor will prescribe an anti-depressant AND something more for anxiety. Best of luck to you.

Dr did say there were some herbal approaches to babs, but did not mention them. Anyone done herbs for babasia? Dr is a LLMD that follows Iliads treatments for years.

3060903 tn?1398568723 // Authors: Melinda Smith, M.A., Lawrence Robinson, and Jeanne Segal, Ph.D. Last updated: December 2012 . Medication can relieve some symptoms of anxiety, but it also comes with side effects and safety concerns—including the risk of addiction. Non-drug treatments may not relieve your anxiety as quickly as medication, but they can produce lasting results.
Avatar m tn Morning Everyone.. Is Xanax an anti-depressant or anxiety med? Addictive? How long can you take this without becoming dependent on the med? Is this a good med for PAWS? My head feels likes it cracken open after being 30 days clean...
Avatar f tn I've been taking it for about a little over a week now and it's helped some. I've been having a lot of stress and anxiety due to working two jobs and also having a broken nose and not knowing what's going to be needed done. I have major cartilage damage to the point where it's starting to deteriorate. She put me on the amitriptyline today and I go back in 3 weeks to determine what we need to do.
3126128 tn?1342885371 ( That isnt me..I wanna be fun again BOOOOO!!! Have any of you started anti depressants?? Did they help??
Avatar f tn All antidepressants require several weeks to determine effectiveness since they work to balance the neurotransmitters in the brain, and these changes take time. Xanax is benzodiazepine anti-anxiety medication that comes in a sustained release formula. Extended Release will last several hours or longer. It can be used occasionally in addition to SSRI medications under the supervision of your vet.
Avatar n tn To msf: I can fully understand where you are coming from re. your wife as I am much the same as her in every way and have suffered for many years also. As I do not like medication in any shape or form, am doing my best to stick to "natural measures". As well as exercise and relaxation, these include watching the diet as things like sugar especially, affect my mood and pain levels (also have osteo-arthritis in some joints).
Avatar f tn Hi, I just wanted to know how anxiety can be treated successfully without medication, especially unusual types of anxiety

1726194 tn?1310178350 I found talking about it helped, too- I was lucky enough that my doctor has the same thing as us, so he sent me to a behavioral therapist, a counselor trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, where anxiety sufferers learn how to identify the root causes of their anxiety, and develop a program to learn how to deal with and reduce the anxiety.
Avatar f tn I was on SSRIs for about 2 years, but decided to come off. I am having issues with my anxiety again and would like to use medication as a last resort. I am wondering what other alternatives are out there. I have been thinking about trying a negative ion bracelet and acupuncture.
Avatar f tn There is always the option of adding another med for a short period to help with your anxiety of taking other medication. I would say do what feels best or right for you. I would usually also say to follow your doctor's advice. Regardless of what you decide regarding medication I think that psychotherapy is important. I think if I were you I would put off any decision until your final exam. I don't think that I would start medication in that time (?
Avatar n tn I would suggest you call your doctor and ask him re klonopin to help with anxiety. You should have seen an effect by now, so adding a specific anti-anxiety medication would make sense to me if your doctor agrees.
398624 tn?1266273049 Anxiety and depression only make sense to me now ONLY because I've had every test possible done and every thing comes back normal. Did you try anti-depressants also? And meds for anxiety? My main concern is my eyes bothering me ALL the time. I know anxiety affects your central nervous system. Maybe mine went untreated for so long (9yrs) that it now affects my eyes. What do you think and do you have the same thing going on with your eyes.
Avatar f tn Hi I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I had a blood test to check my antibodies. They came back with my Anti-TPO antibodies at 141 (<34) and I have had a lot of symptoms which I am not sure are down to the elevation in antibodies or not. I was on Levothyroxine but since my Free T3 and Free T4 were both high and out of range I was advised to skip a few days' doses.
Avatar m tn I am so sorry to hear about your struggles. If the anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic medications don't seem to be working than maybe your issue is hormonal (however, do not go off any medication without talking to a doctor). Also, these medications probably have side-effects like weight gain or you could feel kind of floaty and not like yourself. Your doctor should at least be willing to run some simple tests, or maybe they could refer you to an endocrinologist for testing.
Avatar n tn I too have been on many anti-depressants and anti anxiety medication. Recently I have been taking Thyroxine but it is a bit soon to tell.
Avatar m tn First, if you're on medication, don't take what was recommended -- meds and these things don't go together, especially antidepressant. Know that St. John's wort isn't an anti-anxiety drug, it's an antidepressant for some people, and often antidepressants are stimulating. This isn't a sleep herb or a relaxant. Tryptophan doesn't pass the blood/brain barrier for most people, so it won't work most likely either.
