Anxiety medication homeopathic

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety medication homeopathic


Avatar f tn Hello Everyone, To make a long story short. I've been suffering from anxiety / panic attacks for about 6 months now. I started seeing a ND in June and got on some vitamins/supplements that helped a little. The anxiety hasn't gone away that much. I usually have about a week out of each month that I feel absolutely normal.
4281488 tn?1353909180 a doctor was just telling me yesterday about a newer type anti-depressant thats NOT a medication. Its called a light therapy box. its exactly what it sounds like and little box that projects light. i guess you're supposed to put in somewhere that it will be in your peripheral vision for 15 min a day or something, i'm not 100% sure on the specifics, but it has to do with sunlight exposure, like mentioned above.
Avatar f tn Can I take "Nerve Tonic" for anxiety while taking Armour for Hypothyroidism? Nerve Tonic is Homeopathic.
Avatar m tn I went to a Psychiatrist as well but he said It seemed like I had mild depression and anxiety and maybe the drugs just threw overboard what was already going to happen but other than that I was normal. I don't take medication because I read the side effects and they seem just as bad or worse than the actual illness. Do the symptoms relate to anxiety or something else. Any suggestion will help.
203342 tn?1328740807 It did nothing for me) and one who gave me an anti-anxiety medication, which I took one time and threw them away because the room was spinning and I felt like I was going to fall. I am not interested in taking drugs. I am interested in more natural remedies and learning how to deal with it better. I think doctors are just too quick to hand out the drugs as a pat answer for everything. I don't want to take drugs. I don't like drugs. I barely ever take Tylenol.
Avatar n tn I know it can be very distressing to feel like something is wrong, but the doctor tell you that you are just fine. Sounds like your symptoms are from anxiety. I have dealt with anxiety for a long time ( I am 34 years old) and over time it has gotten better and then sometimes it gets worse during stressful times in life. What I can recommend is a book that I bought recently. It is called "Hope and Help for your nerves" by Claire Weekes. You can buy it at for $ 6.
Avatar m tn Does anyone have any suggestions for something to relieve some of this anxiety? I absolutely have to call my psych md tomorrow and tell him about this since he's been off for winter break. Are there any OTC's that would help out in the event my md tells me to wait until my appt. on Jan. 14? One last thing. Does anyone here with a lot of anxiety find that your memory is affected and that you make all kinds of stupid mistakes all day long?
Avatar m tn Hi everyone.....what is best herbal medicine for anxiety....please only advise if you have used it....
Avatar m tn Following a past trauma from a loud sound overhead while in deep meditation when i experienced the 1st of an overwhelming panic attack, long periods followed before their re occurance which lasted only for a few days, But this last one has run for 4 months and being unable to afford professional help got treated with homeopathic medication from a local University clinic. The symptoms fade around late afternoon and on a scale of 1-10 are around 2 at night.
Avatar f tn Also, the formula is for depression, not anxiety necessarily unless the anxiety is a direct result of depression. Psychiatrists don't know anything about natural remedies, and they're in direct competition with them -- allopathic medicine is a whole different animal than holistic medicine. So if you want to talk holistic medicine, see a naturopath or a holistic nutritionist. And again, if it's working, why would you switch?
Avatar f tn I feel anxiety is like a switch: on or off. The 'off' position is guaranteed, but you don't always have the luxury of knowing when this will be. But I have faith that whenever it is 'on' that it is not permanent and I just need to wade through till it switches back. I have general anxiety disorder, so can't speak for others.
1076391 tn?1258415841 Anxiety disorder in particular can be helped through exercise which can relieve physical and mental stress which is often a part of anxiety disorder. As for homeopathic medications, you'd have to detail which medication you are on. Some treatments outside of conventional medicine have been shown to be helpful. Some have not. I do take some natural remedies but they are in clinical study and have tentatively shown efficacy in clinical studies.
560272 tn?1311353893 Thanks, I will look into that book. And by the way, I'm basically not functioning, staying at home 95% of the time (which is hard with 5 kids & a husband). Unfortuantely my county/city only has one natropath and she is 30 minutes away from me.....which isn't gonna happen until I can do something with this anxiety. I prefer homeopathy over herbs. Anyone, including Paxiled, ever tried "Anxiety Relief" by Natural Care?
Avatar m tn I have a friend that went through the same problem and her doctor prescribed an anxiety medication. So since mine doesn't want to prescribe a medication I thought I could try a over the counter solution.
Avatar m tn and this eventually led to my mental illness anxiety, clinical major psychotic depression, and OCD for 5 years now. My crash down is better than before but I have not recovered from mental illness. First time I was treated with during Winter 2007 tripletail, seroquol, effexor for 9 months. I came off medication and I felt so drained that I could not do anything over Summer of 2008.
1226682 tn?1399941324 You could try homeopathy, but you'd probably have to see a homeopathic physician to do it. One category of herb that doesn't conflict with medication are the adaptogens, such as eleuthero, ashwagandha, and holy basil. They help to balance the adrenals and cortisol release.
Avatar f tn hi you guys, has anyone heard of phosphurus homeopathic treatment for phobias and/or anxiety?? i have been doing some research and apparently it's very safe and works. anyone have experience with this??
Avatar n tn Are you totally against the idea of trying an anti-anxiety medication? If so, why if I may ask? While a medication certainly isn't the FIX, it would certainly help a lot in that it would allow you to at least GET into the initial appointments so you could discuss these issues with the doctors.
Avatar n tn with a pounding heart and shortness of breath. I know this could easily be written off as classic anxiety/panic symptoms. But, I always thought of generalized anxiety/panic as having physical symptoms like mine as a result of an emotional trigger. I don't seem to have that, so I cannot help but think it is thyroid-related… possibly something to do with the elevated antibodies? Does this sound possible? If not, do you think the Lexapro could be a contributing factor? Thank you!
Avatar m tn It's weird that you talk about Lyme Disease, because I've been having a lot of symptoms or anxiety, and tingling/twitching and my homeopathic doc wants me to test for Lyme disease. Apparently you have to take antibiotics for three weeks before the blood test though and I am kind of nervous about that and not sure what to do. My anxiety has been off the charts lately and I just don't know what to do about it.
Avatar n tn He prescribed me some drops and said to try to ride out the anxiety while the drops he prescribed (all homeopathic medicines of course) started to work. By the next evening my anxiety had gotten so bad I had to go to urgent care. They gave me 42 more Ativan. I've been taking it on a regular basis for two days now. It seems like I may be starting to need a little higher of a dose already. I waited as long as I could this morning but 2.
Avatar f tn hello everyone, i am feeling anxious today so need some support, i suffered with anxiety about 6yrs ago and thought i was dying, i found no panic website and they was brilliant, i was in a bad relationship and my anxiety eased off abit, my fear was feeling my heart beating fast thinking i was damaging it, anyway met a new partner and my anxiety wasnt there for a while then it just started again, my partner was helpful because he had suffered panic attacks before, anyway we split up about 12month
Avatar m tn Went to a top herbologist - diagnosed me as very low seratonin. Put me on 5HTP and Tryptophan, etc... But they havent been working with anxiety or sleep to much either... So i finally did what i promised i wouldnt ever do... Benzo. Decided on Klonopin. WOrked the first couple nights, kind of... but still only 5-6 hours and didnt feel like good sleep at all.... Took 1 MG / night Through all this i realize the best sleep i had on any meds was anitryplyline.

(I am 32 now). I have alot of anger with the HMOs as they have virtually thrown meds at me, harmful meds like Xanax - by the way, do NOT let your doctor start you on any BENZOS without first trying the following. Please trust me.
Avatar f tn I've found that with Xanax. You might need to switch to another anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medication and see if that helps. Also did you ever recover from your illness? It sounds like anxiety. I've had the same symptoms with mine. But just to be sure. Why don't you have a complete physical and have your doctor do some bloodwork just to see if there's anything funky there.
Avatar n tn it will come to an end and anxiety cant cause anything serious i am curently on medication which as helped me but that is your desicion there is a book i bought which as been my bible called DR CLAIRE WEEKES SELF HELP FOR YOUR NERVES. i suffered all your symtoms they are scarey and feel very real but you have to fight them only you can do it. i wish you all the luck in the world its terrifing you our not alone.
912156 tn?1242877984 This is particularly bad given that most Americans have an excess of calcium and a lack of magnesium, and the two need to be proper balance. So it's worth a try. You might also try a homeopathic remedy called hypericum, basically homeopathic St. John's Wort, that helps with nerve function. Again, a shot in the dark, but something you can try given that the doctors can't seem to find what's wrong. Nutrition and how meds affect it isn't their strong point.
2107676 tn?1388977459 I guess that's from lack of sleep. Is there an OTC medication for anxiety??? I think I could get someone to pick it up for me.
