574118 tn?1305138884 i still insist that BP is a biological disorder of some sort. So while other psych illness suffer from symptoms which seem purely psychological, in BP there are physical or say mechanical phases or wave cycles of depression then mania. To me there is a missing link there is something like a deficiency in some hormones, neurotransmitters, etc... what is new to me in the following link the possibility to know the deficiency in which neurotransmitter through your urine test.
992677 tn?1537672503 It didn't like me too well either time. Gaba is an amino acid that some claim helps to reduce or relive anxiety and also helps to relax muscle tissue. HTP-5 is also an amino acid that some claim helps your body to produce seritonion. Used together they supposedly work very well to reduce the effects of axiety disorders. My question is since our issue has the same effects as an axiety disorder would this also help?

347630 tn?1196374698 I have been recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder and anxiety and put on Lamictal and Lexapro. I think lamictal works really good for me. I feel calm and able to concentrate. Lexapro on the other hand is making me feel sick. I experience all of the side effects. I tried to research about these meds and I know that Lexapro mechanism of action is based on SSR but I am not quite sure what lamictal does. Some meds affect the serotonin levels, other the dopamine and glutamate.

Avatar m tn I've had severe panic/anxiety disorder for around a year now, when I first got it, my heart was constantly going mad, fast, irregular, pounding, etc. Now a year later, my heart is the complete oppersit, it's super slow, so slow infact it makes me even more anxious! Is a slow heart rate normal for someone with panic/anxiety disorder? Anyone else experiance this?
1076391 tn?1258415841 Also you must know that in people with anxiety problems, weed can be an excellent trigger to a panic attack since THC in cannabis will affect the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, especially receptors named CB1 that can affect the GABA receptors and GABA receptors are those of anxiety. Smoking weed will cause a reduction in the GABA release. Just to give you an example, anti-anxiety meds like benzodiazepines will INCREASE the GABA release.
Avatar f tn It works by activating the organ’s most protective system against anxiety the gammaaminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor. This aids sleep as well. White tea has a higher level of this flavonoid and much less fluoride than green tea. The herb valerian has been shown to activate the same calming brain GABA receptor. It has been used to induce sleep but also calms anxiety during the day. It should not be mixed with medications that act as sedatives or tranquilizers.
Avatar f tn I am going to assume that the problem you have is what is called generalized anxiety (as opposed to panic disorder, or obsessive compulsive disorder or posttraumatic stress disorder). Broadly these are the options - 1. Benzodiazepines like lorazepam (Ativan), diazepam (Valium), clonazepam (Klonopin), etcetera.
Avatar f tn I've been dealing with anxiety since 1984. A small dose of Xanax, not very often, worked. I'm slim, eat well and am very active great-grandmother. Two years ago a family situation put my panics into high gear. They've now been resolved. I've had 2 psychiatrists and 2 Dr's say they can't help me as I'm not depressed and sleep well. I took all their prescriptions (SSRI's) which made me sicker than I could handle. Xanax is the only thing that helps take the edge off.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. A chemical imbalance that I cannot control on my own no matter how much I want to. After a couple of months of experimenting with medication, I found the right one for me and I have been taking it ever since. I haven't had any symptoms since then. It changed my life. Go to a psychiatrist. You do NOT have to live with it. This really isn't that uncommon for Mom's like us. We have a lot on our plates.
Avatar f tn There are MANY MANY different medication approaches to treating anxiety and panic, along with therapy. There are so many different kinds of drugs used to treat anxiety, not just benzos. Usually, in the event of a panic attack, the shorter acting benzos (Xanax, Ativan), are the best choices, because they have a much quicker onset of action, and if only taken here and there "as needed", there is very little concern of tolerance or dependency.
Avatar f tn I am guessing I have GAD, my doctor did not tell me what kind of disorder I have.. all I have been told was that I have anxiety. I have this undescribable nervous feeling everyday. Sometimes worse than other days. I also have palpitations which started over 4 months ago and have continued everyday. I do not have bad panic attacks. The extent of mine have been nervousness/shakiness, hot flashes, shivering, etc.
758077 tn?1282599161 first of all it only happens to people whom have an anxiety/ panic disorder. It has to do with the Serotonin and adrenaline levels in your body... When you are drinking your serotonine levels sky rocket and your adrenaline level dips a lot, so you feel a lot less anxiety when you are drunk depending on how much you drink, alcohol is a depressant/ a downer, that explains that...
Avatar f tn What is the best medication for panic attacks and anxiety disorder with the least side effects? My doctor put me on Prozac but I had insomnia so now I am on Remeron 15mg. for second week, it makes mefeel groggy and I have memory loss.
Avatar f tn The herb valerian has been shown to activate the same calming brain GABA receptor. It has been used to induce sleep but also calms anxiety during the day. It should not be mixed with medications that act as sedatives or tranquilizers. Another product is Relora It's a blend of two extracts Phellodendron amurense and Magnolia officinalis. In a number of tests, Relora has been shown to reduce excess cortisol levels associated with stress while improving mood and reducing stress.
Avatar m tn The relaxants mentioned affect GABA. But if anxiety is a problem for you and is the cause of your insomnia, the best thing to do is try to deal with the anxiety. Therapy with a psychologist specializing in anxiety treatment is one way to do this. Relaxation exercises, such as meditation, can be really helpful. One of the best sleep aids is melatonin, the hormone made by serotonin in the body that sets our sleep clock.

Avatar m tn I think that everyone with an anxiety disorder should be put on an antidepressant med, benzo meds can be add for 4-6 weeks at the begining of the treatment to decrease the anxiety but they sould be withdraw slowly after that 4-6 weeks period... Finding the good antidepressant is not always easy... And the newer ones like the Pristiq or the Lexapro are not necessary the ones with the less side-effects or the best!!!
Avatar f tn Similar to yourself, I too have anxiety without Depression. I was also given Lorazapam and take it as needed, mostly to sleep though. BUT...I was also prescribed Lexapro, please keep in mind that some of these meds that are for depression are also prescribed to help with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. If you are just a "worrier" by nature, you could very well have GAD. I am on a VERY low does of Lexapro (10mg), and it helps with my daily nervousness.
Avatar f tn Hello! My name is Devon and I've been diagnosed with Bi polar 2, panic and anxiety disorder and ocd. I've been doing great lately until abouta week ago when I woke up one morning ( still feeling fine ) and had 4 cups of coffee throughout the morning. I ate and then decided to do a work out... During the workout I was feeling really weak so I stopped half way through and called it a day for that. I took a bath and my feelings of my body being weak just got worse.
Avatar m tn I know a lot of peoples who get rid of their anxiety disorder without meds but most of them had only minor anxiety disorder or just one anxiety disorder, not all the anxiety disorders in the world (panic, social, general, somatization, bulemia....name them...). I know some peoples who get ride of their anxiety with only therapy and sometimes just with their self power... Sometimes anxiety disorder appear and dissepear fast and never show up again...
Avatar m tn SSRIs are often the first type of medicine used to treat generalized social anxiety disorder.3 Benzodiazepines, to relieve anxiety. They are fast-acting. But they may be habit-forming and are not generally used in those who have substance abuse problems. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), to relieve depression and anxiety. MAOIs have potentially serious side effects when they are taken with certain foods (such as some cheeses and red wine). Beta-blockers, to reduce anxiety.
Avatar f tn Dear all, Would love to have some info on what you have tried for anxiety and what worked, in terms of alternative therapies... Currently, I am looking into Valerian Root, Kava tea, Breathing methods, and biofeedback.... Anyone, please chime in.
Avatar m tn You have to take a lot of fish oil for mood, and again, it's more generally been studied for depression rather than anxiety. GABA, and taurine which produces GABA in the body, are directly appropriate for anxiety. However, this doesn't mean they'll work for you -- as with medication, it's trial and error. My advice is to find a good naturopath, and there's a good book to read, Natural Highs, by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA. Good luck.
Avatar m tn It's suppose to be all natural and supplement xanax and help with anxiety and panic disorder. 've heard some things about it but not sure of side effects and was wondering if it was a scam or not. I'm trying to reduce my xanax intake and get off them just wondering if this panicyl stuff works?

Avatar n tn i have been diagnosed with GAD, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and i am a true hypochondriac! i have been on xanax and prozac now for a couple of months. my xanax dosage is low- its 0.5 mg however, i notice that one of my anxiety symptoms is tightness in my chest. i live with this every single day of my life- i wake up with it, and feel i need a xanax, then it goes away only to return later that day so i take another xanax.
