Common Questions and Answers about Anti anxiety medication kids


Avatar f tn Read up on the medication. The ER doctor I saw when I found out I was pregnant (we didn't think we could have kids so it was the last thought on my mind when I had symptoms) prescribed me an anti nausea medicine only for me to look it up & see all the stuff it can do to a baby. No thanks! Do research yourself!
1895346 tn?1321309444 I sleep 2 or 3 hours per night and not all at once. My anxiety is so bad that I don't even answer my phone because I don't know who it is. My world is my house and my phone conversations with my kids. Twice I was rushed to the hospital. Once with a seizure and again when my heart rate was 176 beats per minute. No one will listen to me. I can't take it anymore. I feel like the world is coming to an end ALL THE TIME.
Avatar f tn Anyone on anti anxiety medication? Or have been for prior pregnancies? I'm 23 weeks and I'm so worried about a lot of things making me sick (I also struggle with OCD and it has gotten really bad the last couple months, I spend a lot of time washing my hands). The worst thing for me is that we've had a cat living with us for the last three months and I am terrified of toxoplasmosis and it has really ruined me as far as my anxiety goes... gahh...
Avatar n tn I have been seeing a good theropist off and on for a few years for depression and anxiety. My preference has always been to not take medication. Recently I've started having panic attacks here and there (elevators, escalators, driving over bridges). In addition, my irritability has gotten much worse. My therapist suggested that it may be time to try some medication, and sent me to a prescribing Dr. He prescribed Paxil.
Avatar n tn Call the answering service for the surgeon, describe your anxiety and see if they will give you an anti-anxiety medication and perhaps a sleeping pill for Sunday. Good luck.
420281 tn?1204651104 I have been on lexapro since January of last year, but for the past 2-3 months i have been experiencing joint pain in my fingers and sometimes a weakness in my ( i quess muscles) in my arms and am wondering if anyone else is experiencing these symptoms from taking anti anxiety medications or am i just starting with arthistis!
Avatar f tn You've experienced the same symptoms? Did you take an anti-depressant or an anti-anxiety medication ? How long did it take you to feel normal?
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'.
114870 tn?1210301946 My husband says I should see a doctor and get put on some kind of medication. But what, how can medication every fix my sadness. Sorry, I just feel like this is the best place to ask. I've never expressed these feelings to anyone so thanks for listening.
458072 tn?1291418786 I was told that if you have a thyroid problem, anti-anxiety and anti-depressants won't work or work correctly until the thyroid problem has been addressed. Not sure if that's a fact, but one of the moderators at realthyroidhelp or stopthethyroidmadness stated that. It's worth looking into. Hope this was of some help to you.
1306047 tn?1333247191 I'm really interested in some real life testimonies of people's experiences with medication for anxiety and perhaps OCD. I'd appreciate some perspectives anyone who care's to elaborate.
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.
Avatar n tn My question is really whether abusive amounts of alcohol consumption can trigger these anxiety phases. The most recent phase was at the end of a two week period of drinking at least a few drinks everynight and some weekend nights were excessive (8-10 drinks). Does anyone know if there is any evidence that short periods of excessiving drinking can be the trigger for attacks? Both doc's don't believe I'm alcohol dependent I just sometimes overdo it.
Avatar n tn Different things help different people. For me meds (was on almost all of the anti anxiety meds and anti depressants), therapy, biofeedback, group therapy, deep breathing exercises, yoga, EMDR NOTHING helped until I found a book written by a Psychologist, Dr. Claire Weeks who deals with people like us. This has finally helped me with my anxiety and panic attacks but as for the phobia about going for a doctor's appointment I could not get over it yet.
Avatar f tn Anxiety can cause all kinds of feelings, and numbness is certainly one of them. If your doctor is aware of your anxiety and he says it is nothing, then I would try not to worry too much about it. However, if he is NOT aware of your anxiety condition, then I would tell him about it and how it seems to correlate with your being anxious. Just another thougth, have you seen a chiropractor for this?
398624 tn?1266273049 The only medication I take is Xanax. I take one a day. I used to take Ativan and I took 3 a day and my body got immune to those. Xanax does help some, but I can still feel the symptoms some and then, it all comes back when the Xanax does wear off. I am on the computer probably about 2-3 hrs a day. I used to be on the computer ALL day with my job and it didn't bother me then.
Avatar n tn As a pharmacist, I agree with the doctor that this medication profile appears to be too excessive for simple anxiety. It appears that the Celexa is causing her some insomnia (it is a common side-effect). Many doctors choose to use the Trazodone because of its sedating effects (to help her sleep). The buspar is a non-controlled and supposedly non-addicting anti-anxiety agent. I must say that I do appreciate the attempt by her doctor to avoid using habit-forming agents like the benzo's (eg.
794366 tn?1418012995 I hope she can get anti-anxiety medication. She has an appointment tomorrow afternoon.
Avatar f tn I did go to a therapist who dealt with chronic disease and went on anti depressants and anti anxiety meds. They did not hinder my MS diagnosis. I stayed in counseling awhile and am still on the medication. I also got over the fear or disability. I found worry is trying to control the future and you can't. Control is an illusion. Much of our lives are out of our control especially our health. I also learned that not every scenario of MS will happen.
2010625 tn?1329375656 HI , I haven't had many issue's with med's myself but my mother is the same as you , i didn't read all the effect's different med's had on you but i do know that my mum she can hardly take anything including most pain medication anti depressant's , mood stabilizer's aswell as anti psychotics , nothing agree's with her and she's not a real big woman either .
377493 tn?1356505749 It was pretty severe and had manifested itself in severe anxiety. Since being on the drug I am feeling far better, much more like my old self. The problem is my son's pediatrician would prefer I not nurse on this med. I talked to the prescribing Dr. and his opinion is that I am responding so well to this drug that he would prefer not to change it.
Avatar f tn I read SO much about paws that now I have a phobia of that too which leads to more anxiety! I've been put on an anti depressant. I tried therapy, a holistic approach with supplements and the symptoms are so severe I relented to medication. It's been 5 days. I'm seeing improvement in the anxiety and depression but this stuff has some nasty initial side effects. I'm defeated feeling that I stopped one mind altering drug ony to require another. But it's bad...
694947 tn?1227991027 I am kinda wanting to shy away from the pain meds and deal with the pain, but instead go on an anti depressant, anxiety medication. I have symptoms of dresion an anxiety. At this point as well as getting rid of pain, I am just looking to get my self level. I have no motivation, no love or joy to do anything. typical depression and anxiety symptoms. But also the symptoms you get after being off meds. SO!
190559 tn?1280615967 However, I found that after I no longer had to take it, I felt better in a lot of other ways, including lessened anxiety. I never asked my doctor about this, as by the time I discovered it, I was off the medication and it really no longer applied. I have no medical evidence (nor have I ever heard or read of any) that methimazole can have an impact on emotional well being, but I would be easy to convince given my own experience.
Avatar f tn I used to spell OK, but now it is getting worse. But I don't worry about it, or think it is due to my medication. What anti-depressant are you on?
Avatar n tn Boy, I really do wish I could suggest a particular medication. But the truth is, each medication is a gamble. I've been on 16 different antipdressant and antipsychotic medications to alleviate anxiety and depression, none of them have had any noticable effect that lasted for more than a few days. I have had many side effects. Some medicines worse than others. I won't tell you which ones I've taken. The reason is this, each person reacts differently to each medicine.
Avatar f tn Now I knew I was going to gain some weight from the menopause and later I found out that I was gaining weight from the bipolar medication, Lithium which I have been on since 1997, along with another medication for depression, this changes alot. I was 130lbs when all this started. I am 54 yrs old now and I weight 200lbs, am on Lithium 900mg and Seroquel 300 mg and Paxil. All my doctors have denied weight gain from the medications and I do not understand that. This stuff just comes on like majic.
2059648 tn?1439770265 I dont take any sleeping pills. I just wake up at 7 am, get my kids to school, go out, do some work, do some shopping, some loads of clothes, make the dinner, take the dog on a few walks thru-out the day, so by the time I hit my bed, at 11 pm, I am super exhausted, and sleep until about 4 am. Then I'm up, drink some water, use the bathroom, back to bed, and sleep from about 5:30 am to 6:30 am.
