Avatar m tn Benzodiazepines have robust efficacy in the short-term management of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), but were not shown to be effective in producing long-term improvement overall. Although benzodiazepines are much safer in overdose than their predecessors, the barbiturates, they can still cause problems in overdose.

Anxiety disorders are treatable with psychological therapies, or medication, or both. Recovery from an anxiety disorder is possible with specialist treatment, education, support and self-management skills.

When I slack off on my anxiety management tools (exercise, relaxation, breathing) anxiety is waiting to bite me in the butt! I'm coming to accept that daily maintenance is important. Things will get better, even if it doesn't seem like it will. BTW, I'm on cipro too and have noticed increased symptoms today! argh!

Avatar n tn Whether you have generalized anxiety or social anxiety or garden variety anxiety can only be diagnosed by a doctor.........and at the young age of 13, (even tho it's obvious you are mature for your age) your hormones are kicking into high gear and that can sometimes bring on anxiety. I would urge you to talk to your parents about these feelings and I believe a talk with your doctor is in order. You do not have to feel this way.
Avatar n tn Given the absence of a diagnosis of a cardiac or endocrine problem, yes, it does sound like anxiety.

Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder. I have been on four different medications; the first one was Lexapro, which made me extremely tired, then Cymbalta which made me extremely paranoid, a generic version of Zoloft, I can't remember the name which I gained 15 to 20 pounds before I realized it was the medicine, and the latest one is fluoxetine(? generic Prozac) which doesn't appear to be helping, I'm still anxious (crabby) so I went off that one as well.
Avatar n tn I suffer from anxiety disorder and started taking cipralex (lexapro) low dose 2.5 mg and clonozapram low dose 0.25 mg . I also have high blood pressure because of the anxiety disorder. Any suggestions from people who take medication for anxiety.

Avatar m tn Ok, I have been recently depressed about various things in my life for the last year or more. Not suicidal or anything but not satisfied with my life. Anyways I recently decided to try a pot brownie and totally flipped out. I had full on panic attack for probably an hour and thought I was going to die. I had been thinking about the last year or so and was wondering what I was doing in my life and all of a sudden my heart rate skyrocketed and I was in a panic.
Avatar f tn Im against medications when is about anxiety disorders..since this is not a only that your nervs are damaged a little.. I took buspar aka busprione for 2 weeks and it made me have mood swings and since then i have brain zaps at night but not everytime.. So i don't know what you should get on some meditation r and you should go and make some CBT. I will give you also some advice about Dr. Clarie Weekes books and CD's that you should try.
Avatar m tn I've developed an anxiety disorder, from a big panic attack about a year ago on weed. I never had any anxiety before this and am starting counseling tomorrow at my school. You think there's a chance I can recover from this without any medication? I have been getting lots of head shaking/nervousness/edgyness in social situations. Thanks.
Avatar f tn When my anxiety first appeared it was going through a line at the grocery store. I remember thinking how am I ever going to sign my name? Well I chickened out and fleed the store instead with all my groceries behind me.It scared me to death!! . My son was a little boy back then and said "Mommy, why are you leaving the groceries behind? I couldn't explain why.That's when I went to the doc and he prescribed Xanax for me and it worked. You say Xanax doesn't work for you?
