Avatar f tn I'm not sure if this is the right forum or not but I've been having extreme amounts of anxiety that turns into rage or I have panic attacks so severe that I almost pass out or puke. I've had problems with anxiety before but not to the point of there not even being a trigger and it happing. It's got to stop!! I feel like its all but consuming my life and I refuse to let that happen. Do any of you know of a vitamin or something that helps?

Avatar f tn After suffering for over 1 year with anxiety attacks along with my blood pressure continuously at a low, I would like recommendations on any natural medicine available for aiding attacks and increasing blood pressure.
Avatar f tn It is marketed as a 'natural' supplement to treat anxiety. In my opinion, you really have to be careful with some 'natural remedies.' Just because it has this word, does not mean that it is safe or effective to use...furthermore, it has not been tested by the FDA. However, I cannot speak of experience because I have not taken this before. Why did you go off of Celexa? Were you having problems with it?
Avatar f tn Are there any over the counter meds that I can take daily at home for anxiety attacks. I have at least two attacks every day, but I have no insurance to go to a doctor for a prescription med.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Magnesium, a vital mineral nutrient, is perhaps one of the most important natural anxiety remedies because of its effectiveness, record of safe use, availability and value. Eating foods that are rich in magnesium is an important step in correcting a magnesium deficiency naturally. Magnesium can be found most abundantly in coconut water, kelp, cashews, buckwheat, molasses, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, cocoa powder and rice bran.Too much magnesium may cause loose stools.
Avatar m tn You have nothing to lose. Please know I have suffered from panic attacks 40,000 feet in the air, generalized anxiety attacks where I felt I wanted to bite my tongue, nightmares and on and on. Anxiety is an old friend of mine, believe me. Not in order of importance, I will begin...only one tip at a time, please. 1. Within 90 seconds of awakening, drink 8 oz of water, I can't tell you how much dehydration mimics anxiety. 2. (I lied about only one).
Avatar f tn The anxiety is not doing either because it can't. You are over-analyzing your body because anxiety is making you fear something is wrong, so you keep track of every little pain you experience now whereas without anxiety you would just ignore an ouch here and there - we all get them and ignore them. You may actually have a physical issue like a sore throat from an infection or dryness, but you would have to see doc for that diagnosis, but anxiety is not causing it.
8732981 tn?1400772389 It can be challenging if you have chronic anxiety. I know b4 I was pregnant I took benzo's to help me. I switched to natural remedies but I was told I couldn't take that either. I am cold turkey which hasn't been the easiest. I know I have done yoga in the past or listened to spa music on YouTube. Seems to distract me for a bit.
Avatar n tn What is happening to cause the anxiety is an unbalance of chemicals in the brain and if you can get it back into with good food, and natural remedies you will be better of. I am not on an SSRi now but taking something called Endep which works on the brain chemicals but in a slightly different way. Will have to see how it goes, its all a hit and try thing from what I see. Godd Bless and good luck to you.
780253 tn?1237559519 Have had anxiety attacks and panic attacks ever since. If my dose is right I have less anxiety, and if my thyroid goes down I have more, which lets me know I need bloodwork and possibly a tweak in my dose. No one told me at first what a lifelong and stressful illness this would be. I keep having these anxiety attacks and it has crippled my confidence and limited my ambition in some ways.
1348686 tn?1310657843 I am hoping that someone can help me. I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for 9 years now. The last 8 days have been horrible. My anxiety is off the charts and everyday I have been having several really bad panic attacks. I am trying to find an alternative to medication to help deal with the anxiety and attacks. I just started taking a multi vitamin and I love chamomile tea but I am so afraid to drink the tea if i took the vitamin in fear of interactions. Crazy????
Avatar f tn hello there i experienced a few anxiety attacks a few days ago and now i keep having this worrying feeling. i bought valerian root capsules and i was wondering if i can take then during the day as well. or for example i did take one today but didnt do much good, can i take tonight also?how many? can anyone help?
Avatar f tn Are panic attacks the same as anxiety attacks? How do I stop feeling them I get a lot of depersonalisation and I hate it. Is there any way to stop these attacks all together without medication?
Avatar f tn I KNOW that this is a ton of medication, but I suffer from severe anxiety and panic attacks. I've had it ever since I was 21 and now I'm 43. I was wondering if I could try introducing natural herbs into the mix slowly, like valerium or camomile? I KNOW everyone is going to ask me to check with my doctor, but no one seems to know about natural health! Is it really up to me to look all these things up on my own or does someone out there know what natural cures are safe for me to take!
651235 tn?1224885959 While I applaud everyone who attempts to deal with their anxiety/panic using "natural" remedies, I feel compelled to issue a warning. The myth that because something is "natural" it can't hurt us is wrong. The fact is, it can be lethal. If you are on ANY medication, even an OTC, and combine certain herbs with them, you could be risking your lives. The hospital I work at has a VERY large book that contains nearly every herb known to man..........
651235 tn?1224885959 can you fight panic attacks and anxiety problems with mental power? (self-hypnosis, etc) Is medication necessary? or will the symptoms get worse over the months and years as you decide not to take any medication... Can you treat it with home remedies? special types of herbs and vitamins? im desperate guys, i need to get my life back...i miss it. :-/ please help...and maybe the information will help others too who are suffering the same as me...
Avatar m tn then the answer is to learn to stop expecting anxiety attacks. Not easy, but an anxiety therapist might help you, and if it gets so bad you can't function medication might be necessary. But first you need to decouple the anxiety from you other health concerns in your mind.
Avatar f tn I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for several years now. They have been mild and not often up until recently. I have always been able to "talk myself out of them" but then got so bad that I was awake ALL night with anxiety symptoms-fast heart rate, shaking, dizziness, etc- I was just put on Wellbutrin XL 150 a day and xanax for immediate help during attacks.
Avatar m tn While it's true natural remedies aren't allowed to be banned, they are regulated. The FDA just chooses not to do so, because it serves the pharmaceutical industry (that's just historical and congressional fact). Congress passed legislation several years ago to prevent the FDA from regulating natural remedies out of existence, which is what it wants to do, but it and the Department of Agriculture and the FTC can and do regulate them when sufficient adverse reports come out.
Avatar f tn The medication causes rebound effects, which leaves you in a constant cycle. Natural remedies don't do this. You might try seeing a naturopath and trying to get your digestion into balance rather than just treating symptoms. That pressure you feel can be from the formation of acid, too, just like you're other symptoms, and medications tamp down this acid, but they also force the body to make even more acid, since it's necessary to digest protein. Not a good long-term solution.
Avatar f tn It depends on the person, just as with allopathic medicine. But since any method you try will recommend you get into therapy with a psychologist who specializes in anxiety treatment and to learn relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises and meditation you can look into these as well. Using natural medicine isn't what you're going to see on the internet usually, which will recommend one product and say, use this and you'll be fine.
1434731 tn?1382725984 I hate having anxiety! It freaks me out and makes me feel like at any given time I'm gonna have a heart attack or just die. I get that little fluttery feeling in my chest. I have a pressure in my middle chest between my boobs but it's not really my chest, it feels like my back and I want to crack it. I took my blood pressure cuz that helps me sometimes. 131/70 not bad! I don't know why I have it but it's annoying! It's been like a week of generally not feeling well.
933087 tn?1291177860 If you're off it, then try therapy before meds, try natural remedies before meds, save meds as your last resort if you can't function without them. They all have side effects and potential problems stopping them, and though many sail through, some don't, and they don't cure, they only treat symptoms. So get a good therapist who specializes in treating people with anxiety and panic.
Avatar m tn Has anyone had any experience taking 5-HTP instead of an SSRI to increase serotonin to assist with Panic Attacks and Anxiety? I have previously been on Zoloft last year and I am about to go on Lexapro. My Psychiatrist is a strong believer in “Natural Supplements” and had suggested 5-HTP. I am receovering from a Panic and Anxiety disorder from being diagnosed with Heart Disease and I am currently out on disability from my Job.
Avatar m tn Recently, i have been experiencing more frequent symptoms that i think are being brought on from stress, from what i can only pin point, to be Anxiety Attacks, or Over-stressed, causing these symptoms. They mostly occur while at work, usually around lunch.
Avatar n tn If you really want to know about natural remedies for mental problems, there's a book called Natural Highs by Hyla Cass. She's a psychiatrist associated with UCLA med school. Using natural remedies usually requires a combination of herbs and amino acids, B vitamins and minerals. If you really get panic attacks, it's going to take a lot of work, and best to see a naturopath who knows the stuff well. Never heard of PanicAway, but as silverberg describes it, probably bogus.
