Avatar f tn I had a baby 8 months ago and had a very difficult pregnancy dealing with anxiety and depression. I took medication during it but was afraid every day of the effects of the medication. Once I had the baby I was like I'm going to tackle this problem once an for all. My major problem is anxiety, next is restless and agitated sleep, next is depression and maybe a little OCD.
1394262 tn?1369625192 Hi anyone taking anxiety medication & trying to conceive? I am trying to conceive & am dealing with my anxiety issue at the same time. I am thinking if I should see a psychiatrist for help. I will appreciate it if you could share with me if you are suffering from any side effect from anxiety medication or not. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Also my psychiatrist told me alot of people who suffer from anxiety/depression will think the medication is making them worse because the are already struggling with anxiety/depression. However, some medications just don't work for people, or cause side effects such as fatigue. I was on lexapro 10mg for a year, then stopped, and started to take it again for a little over a month and it no longer worked for my anxiety. So I slowly weaned off the lexapro and switched to cymbalta.
1679320 tn?1306382914 is it possible that anxiety doest come back after taking medication for it or is it a guaranteed to hit you again after stopping?
Avatar f tn Im afraid of becoming addicted to them, and from what I hear most anxiety medication is highly addictive so I have put off any sort of treatment for my anxiety.
Avatar f tn I've never wanted medication for my anxiety. My doctor insisted, so I tried it. I started with 10mg of lexapro and I started feeling better some days. I stopped taking it during vacation (because my work apparently triggers my anxiety) and I felt pretty good. When I got back to work I started on lexapro again but this this time I had all sort of side effects possible. My dr.
Avatar f tn I'm planning on going back onto medication for depression and anxiety as it's got much worse since being pregnant. I think after your first trimester any defects people claim pills can cause are massively decreased because your baby is developed much more. Just go through all options with your doctor first and any cons of pills you may take. Ask to see a counsellor as well as that may help as well.
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 n tn You need to realize that for many of us medication is our only hope. Anxiety can be just like any other medical condition requiring daily medication to control the symptoms. If you were diagnosed with wouldn't think twice about taking the needed medication....this is no different. Anxiety is a medical condition. If therapy isn't helping you then you need to consider medication so that you can live a happy life.

Avatar f tn Hi all, I take medication for bipolar II, however this doesn't seem to help at all with my anxiety issues. My pdoc is referring me to an anxiety management group but I'm scared of going, I know that if I'm having a parituclarly bad day I won't be able to get out the door to go the meeting!
Avatar n tn I am curious what is a good medication for a young adult with anxiety problems but is scared to take pills because that is my mother's drug of choice and she is scared she will end up like our mother so she won't take them very often but they have prescribed her Welbutrin and Clotopin (I don't think that I spelled that right). I know a little bit about some of these medication and I don't know if this is the medicine she should be on so I need some advice.

633403 tn?1281175065 s and benzos was the only thing that seemed to help.!!!! I am therapy also. So I am not looking for medication to be the only answer.
Avatar n tn Right now I feel I can manage my anxiety without taking anything extra. When my anxiety becomes bothersome I drink Kava tea and take a hot bath. When I was suffering from debilitating panic disorder years ago, I took the lorezapam once or twice a day until the Paxil kicked in. My panic attacks this time around were benign compared to those of years ago. The 12.5mg of PaxilCR has done wonders for me.
Avatar m tn Im on this anxiety medication im wondering if it will make me better orbis just like for symptoms for the day ir somthin
Avatar f tn So before I was pregnant I had extreme anxiety, and was on and off medication. Didnt really like the effects - I was either a mindless zombie, or super nice and happy. And for the first 2 trimesters my anxiety had been pretty low. But, now I'm 35 weeks and the anxiety is so bad. I get it for big things, small things, or i'll even just be sitting watching tv and get hit with a huge wave of anxiety for no reason. I've started scratching my self..
Avatar n tn Hi, I was recently diagnosed with inattentive type ADD not too long ago but i was also diagnosed as Major Depressive with lots of anxiety (nothing official with the anxiety, but it was definitely there) well over a year ago. 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.
Avatar m tn As for Buspar from a lot of online research many people have had it work for anxiety, as it is just an anxiety medication and not depression. I read hundreds of good reviews on it, so research may say something but I also take weight in what actual people have to say. Spoke with my Dr about it and she agreed that it was worth a shot, and she has had many people who have done well with it.
Avatar f tn I wa just wondering if anybody has managed to combat their anxiety without medication. I ask because I experience symtpoms everyday but my mom won't let me take the xanax that my doctor prescribed for me. I really want to stop feeling horrible all the time so i was wondering if anybody had any success with any thing else besides medication.
12182312 tn?1427683956 Hi. I am going to a rheumatologist very soon for a second opinion on lupus which I think I have. If I do, it has definitely affected me neurologically. I really, really do not want to take steroids if I don't have to. Anyone with neuro lyme on a non-steroid medication, and if so what is the name and does it help. Thank you very much...
Avatar f tn My therapist recently suggested the idea of going on some medication for my anxiety. Thats something I have thought of for a while but am nervous to go forward with. I am nervous about the side effects that come along with the medications. I am looking to hear some other people's experiences with medication and what the pros and cons are.
