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 I will give the antidepressants a little longer and take it from there. Which anti anxiety medication do you take and how helpful has it been for you? The antidepressants don't seem to do much but the Valium gives me some relif. I've been taking the Valium once in the morning for about 10 weeks. Well I'm off to get my second run on Lexapro as I'm out. Iv'e also found that Clanazapan is sold under a different brand name here, so maybe that will be a better option for me.
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 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?
880512 tn?1249085122 We use hydroxyzine at the hospital more frequently for preoperative sedation and postoperative nausea than as an antianxiety med. It IS classified as an antianxiety medication, more commonly known as Atarax, but it's just not a usual "first-line" choice for most doctors. Nothing wrong with it........if it's helping. If it's not, don't hesitate to ask your doctor for something else.
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...
1722607 tn?1335747858 Hi, can you recommend some anti anxiety meds that are not addicting?
Avatar n tn Saphris is a anti-psychotic ( which is a medication which may help with psychotic symptoms and mania associated with bipolar disorder) Cymbalta is a antidepressant which may help with depressive and anxiety symptoms such as low mood, and panic attacks. You may want to talk to your doctor for more information about these medications, such as side effects and there proposes for you taking them. Try Googling the drug names online also for more information on them. Hope this helps.
1719918 tn?1309297630 This is strictly advice but I would not recommend that you take any sort of Anxiety or Anti-depressant. I suffer from Anxiety/panic attacks and am convinced that there must be another or natural way of relieving it. I weined off xanax and fighting it right now because you become MAJORYLY dependant on it. It's hell brother! (& dangerous too!). I feel like I'm going to die and would never recommend anybody to consume a Benzo. Anne is right about the anti-depressants too...
Avatar f tn Xanax is supposed to be used only as-needed and used over long periods of time it can become addictive and loose effect making you increase your dosage. If you're having everyday anxiety it's best to talk to your therapist about an anti-depressant. I just saw mine yesterday and she is starting me on Paxil, which is alot less addictive than Xanax. Xanax is also fast acting, meaning you can take it in the morning but within 6 hours it loses it's effectiveness.
2195245 tn?1338428182 Hi, Zoom1012, Right now, these are the only two; can you give us the names of other anti-retrovirals that you think should be included? We'll pass those along to our developers, but in the meantime, you can use the tracker's journal to specify any other meds you're taking. Thanks for the suggestion!
Avatar m tn Before you try Cymbalta, it can also be very stimulating, and there's also evidence being considered now by FDA about liver toxicity, so just be careful out there. Ativan shouldn't be a weight gainer, but it is an addictive med and probably won't be used for you long-term. The weight gainers tend to be the less-stimulating anti-depressants, which are the ones unfortunately used for anxiety.
Avatar n tn You have received good advice already, and take note that Effexor does have a stimulating effect, and most anxiety and depression is a mixture of both, so Zoloft or some other medication may be your answer...as for memory, it's hard to diagnose from this information because it could be from the heightened anxiety..did you try therapy along with medications..if not, you can try the self help therapy I have pioneered at www.myvirtualshrink.com.
Avatar f tn Are there ANY anxiety/depression meds that are allowed to take during pregnancy?
953190 tn?1276516034 re depressed again, I would definitely go back on this medication. Always keep in mind that every medication works differently in different individuals. Every situation and body is unique, so go by what you know has worked for you.
Avatar f tn Whenever I see lightning, or hear or even think I hear lightning I freak out and I am sick and tired of it. I was wondering what medication would be best for my anxiety. Since thunderstorms only last a couple hours I am looking for a short acting medication.
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.
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.
