Avatar n tn But when it comes to high BP there is no over the counter drug, and people have to make the choice to take the prescription drugs and take a chance of serious side effects or don't take any meds and take the chance of having a stroke, heart attack or damage to the organs from the high BP. I'm lucky and have no side effects from the BP meds I have to take, but I know people who had powerful side effects from BP meds and therefore had to be switched half a dozen times.
Avatar m tn that riba is some strong stuff..so yes taking anti anxiety/anti depression/anti whatever it takes to get through treatment has been our approach! Giddy finishes his 48 weeks of daily infergen/riba in two weeks!! He is or has been on it all, right now his regimen is protonix for that churned up stomach feeling, compazine for the naseau, and lexapro for the "depression". We were told that valium is not liver friendly.

The Oprah Winfrey Show and the promotion of pseudoscience Over the years, Oprah has promoted a wide variety of dubious medical practices, pseudoscience, and mysticism on her show. Indeed, just this week, NEWSWEEK ran a long article (excerpts of which I will quote but which you should read in its entirety at http://www.newsweek.com/id/200025) entitled Live Your Best Life Ever!

410475 tn?1262945967 You know, the over the counter head ache medicine. It lists the possibility of some pretty nasty side effects too. It doesn't mean you will experience them. Did you know that 1 out of every 100 people that use Motrin develop ulcers? It's true! In some people Motrin can cause Ulcers in the lining of the stomach. You know why it is that you read posts about peoples poor experience with antidepressant medication?

Avatar m tn WELCOME TO THE ANXIETY FORUM! Welcome everyone to the Anxiety Forum. This is the place to come if you have questions or concerns about anxiety/panic, related medications and their side effects and recovery. Some of our members have been living with anxiety and related disorders for years, while others are new to the waiting rooms of psychiatrists/therapists and the rainbow of medications available to treat our various conditions. Regardless of what brings you here, welcome!
Avatar n tn Kava root and Valerian root are used as mild sedatives by the way. So they may calm your nerves. But they will not take away the anxiety. You need medication for that. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn Keep in mind that the drugs being put out over the last 10 years or so are only tested by the companies that make them, and all negative research is NOT PUBLISHED, so even doctors will not have access to it. Hope that is helpful, and good luck.
147426 tn?1317269232 I've been a limbolander for over 15 years. I haven't been told by a dr that anxiety or depression is the cause, once when I was in my late 40's I was told that my problems we're due to getting old, though. This was told to me without any testing being done, my complaint was extreme fatigue and not being able to do the things I needed to do. I was totally dismissed. I do suffer from stress and depression. Are my symptoms caused by this, I strongly disagree.
Avatar n tn -do not take magnesium supplements with calcium-- it interferes!
Avatar m tn The next day anxiety is worse because of the hangover, so you drink to get over that. But then if you want to quit, you also have terrible anxiety. After a few days sober, you are so anxious that drinking seems like the only solution, and so on. I think that making it past those first few vital days is really important. And I really think that guys like us will be able to do it, because we want to change so badly. St.
Avatar m tn She put me on an over the counter antihistamine (Claritin I think) for 3 weeks, and they went away. I suspect that if I'd started on them as soon as the hives started showing up, they would have been gone much sooner.
Avatar dr m tn Many people with panic disorders can be treated either conservatively with therapy of stress control and relaxation methods, but many people end up being placed on an anti-anxiety medications. Any time I see patients in my practice with anxiety disorders, in almost every case, the person prefers not to sleep on his or her back. The reasons for this is that due to certain anatomic factors, if the person lays flat on his or her back, then due to gravity, the tongue falls back partially.
Avatar f tn Paxiled, what are your feelings about the acid relieving over the counter meds like Tagamet? That has been very helpful for me. I find tomato or acid based foods do add to my difficulty and as I 'love' this type of food . . . I take my antacid prior to the meal. As I don't take the medication every day --- but when I feel a symptom starting or if I'm giving into my craving for red sauce. I've never had any issues with it not working?? Anyway, interesting things we can do with our diet.
Avatar m tn Concentrating on the positive is certainly more productive than allowing the negative ones to control us....I have not had to go on anti-anxiety drugs or anti-depressants, nor do I take anything to help me get to sleep..I have enough medication in my system...I recently (last month) had to give up my job and go on disability..After working for 33 years, that leaves alot of "Feel Sorry for me Time".....
Avatar n tn john's wort which is a herbal over the counter medicine that relieves anxiety and depression. This product takes longer to work but is not chemically produced nor as expensive as most prescriptions that most be filled out by a doctor which also costs money. If you can afford it I would suggest prozac which is very helpful in reducing anxiety or effexor.
Avatar n tn or something else? How many drinks? Do you take any prescription meds or over-the-counter meds? If so, did you take any of them last night? Sorry so many questions, but it may help me find you an answer or point you in the right direction. Keep in mind, I don't know you and this is pretty anonymous, K?
Avatar f tn The problem with ma huang, the Chinese name for the herb, is that teenagers were buying it over the counter and taking a bunch, dieters were abusing it, and drug dealers were using it to make methamphetamine. There was no problem with the herb itself, which is very mild. So you might as well ban Nyquil, and Xanax, which are also abused, and all painkillers, which are abused. If we make illegal everything that's abused, we won't have any medication left, natural or otherwise.
6539069 tn?1383243807 As of now, I don't have any signs of hyperthyroidism, my thyroid is not enlarged and my eyes are back to normal again though it's not perfectly like before, it's just the anxiety attacks that I've been experiencing lately and the occasional fast heart beat and hyper acidic, it's really a nightmare for me.. guess, I will be taking all this medication for lifetime..
Avatar n tn I take the liquid based form in the morning when the anxiety is the worst. It seems really bad in the morning when I wake up, then lessens...I can sure empathize with you on the 'feeling of dread'. Mine's about gone. Just some mild depression, with some sparse anxiety. Angst - I'm resolved to be strong and mean. The thought of popping a pill makes me sick to my stomach. Luckily, none of my friends/family use and I don't go out much anymore, so there's little chance of me being around it.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if these symptoms are maybe caused by spasms in the muscles in my scalp tightening up and making me feel spaced out. You can buy some tablets for tension headaches over the counter. In England they are called Syndol but i am just trying ibuprofen at the minute. I was wondering if the spasms in the musles in the scalp are causing a type of migraine effect as i do feel more spaced out when i am in a shop with overhead strip lighting?
Avatar f tn I agree with turkee23, they are only giving you medications to sleep and not treating the real cause of the insomnia which is the anxiety. Once you start to treat the anxiety, the insomnia will resolve itself. I know you don't want to take any more pills but sometimes it is hard to do it without medication. So go to a psychologist who specializes in CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy, and see if those techniques work for you.
Avatar n tn I decided rather than taking the Effexor right away, I am going to see the psychiatrist of a friend who apparently will sit down with me and go over a list of all the possible medications I could take, the side effects of each one, the pros and cons, mechanism of action, everything. I'd feel much more comfortable doing that than just taking the first thing a primary care doctor who was filling in for my regular doctor prescribed. Thanks again to all of you for your advice and support!!!
Avatar m tn its from my Anxiety. I notice them the more anxious I get. Anxiety gives you the craziest symptoms and its different for every body.
Avatar n tn Definitely NOT psychological. In fact, when I had this following and adverse reactions to a prescribed med, you could see all pulses, all over the body, pulsating. It was visible. If you can hear your heart beat when you are lying down, it is called pulsatile tunnitus, and yes, it is unpleasant. I had this too for a few years on and off.
784382 tn?1376934640 I can tell you about MY experience with Zoloft. First, it is actually one of the the most commonly Rx'd SSRI's for anxiety and panic with a great record of success. Zoloft was the first med I ever took for my panic disorder and I'll tell you, it gave me my life back. I went from literally housebound to "back to me" in a matter of months. I am a huge Zoloft supporter.
Avatar f tn Since I have to treat 48 weeks I have been counting down the days until the Incivek is over and hoping that things will get a little easier once this part is over. Thanks!
Avatar n tn My heart races, I feel afraid. I'm wondering, does anxiety and panic CAUSE the reflux, or does the reflux cause the anxiety? I am now on Paxil, reflux medication and Ativan. This is debilitating. Only a few moments ago I was on the couch with a wet towel on my head, on the phone with a friend telling her I felt like I was going to die. I felt it in my stomach, that extreme knotting, feeling as if I wanted to burp but couldn't. My heart racing.
