Anxiety over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety over the counter


Avatar f tn I think I've made this too confusing. I'm just wondering about the best over-the-counter anti-anxiety medication available. That work quickly. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you. :) (I'm a minor, by the way. 16. If that matters, which I'm assuming it might, because I don't know what I can and can't buy from Walgreens at this age.
Avatar m tn no caffeinated beverages after 12 noon, no TV for at least an hour before going to bed, take a warm shower, have a hot cup of chamomile tea, the room must be dark, so that the melatonin hormone is released in the natural way. I hope this is helpful.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to become addicted to over the counter medications? My 75 year old mother recently moved to my town so that I could help her financially, etc. I have become very concerned about the amount of excederine, prilosec, nasal spray, aleve, and other antacid medicines that she takes. She has a history of bleeding ulcers, she smokes about 2 packs of cigarettes a week, high blood pressure, and other ailments of old age. I didn't realize that she was taking so much of this medicine.
Avatar n tn If you're going CT, the over the counter stuff might not help - if it does, great! But if it doesn't, you'll have time to sleep when you're clean.
Avatar n tn I believe many of the medications that contain pseudofedrine are now sold behind the counter as they have been used in the production of meth. Does she ever by ephedrine which is sold in many convenient stores. She may just be using the meds for the pep they give when taken in normal doses for some or larger doses for others. In fact as of 1-1-07. you have to show an ID and sign a DEA log. Some suboxone users on maintenace use ephedrine or sudafed for the energy it seems to produce.
333612 tn?1302886990 It seems to be working, i've gotten through the worst of the withdraws I think, I just can't get over the anxiety and restlessness at nights.
Avatar n tn I couldn't sleep the next couple days, and now I been having severe anxiety due to the fact of a nagging headache that wont go away thinking I may have screwed up something in my brain. Needless to say that I suffer of Panic disorder and I've been in similar situations because of my alcohol abuse, but I just want to see if someone has done something as stupid as this, or if you think I should be fine. I have a doctor's appointment until Monday, couldn't find any earlier...
Avatar n tn Pharmacy with prescription, unless your planning on travelling, asian countries you can pretty much buy anything you want over the counter without a prescription.
Avatar f tn She is a nut case though,we reconciled for 3 years then poof off with another man in jan, engaged in march and now married, but anyway thats her problem or his now.
Avatar n tn Thanx for the information everyone. I always had bad anxiety all my life and wish it would magically disappear. I let take a hold of my life and it stop me from doing the simple things in life, work, visiting friends and family. The doctors have told me over and over its anxiety and calm down. But when you cant breathe or feel edge its hard to settle down just like that. Some days I feel good then bang its back like its be stalking me.
1191246 tn?1346893258 try to do things to occupy your time so the.anxiety isn't so bad.. Also there is over the counter meds to help with anxiety, such as some vitamins. Good luck, God bless you & stay strong.
Avatar f tn Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). 3. L-Tyrosine (500 mg caps) from the health food store. 4. Strong wide-spectrum mineral supplement with at least 100% RDA of Zinc, Phosphorus, Copper, Magnesium and Potassium (you may not find the potassium in the same supplement). 5. Vitamin B6 caps. 6. Access to hot baths or a Jacuzzi (or hot showers if that's all that's available).
Avatar f tn What I found helped me was to remind myself that they are not personal, it is not an attack on me, it is a glitch in the neurochemistry of my brain, it is bad but it won't kill me, and although I can't control the thought I can control my response to that thought. If I have an intrusive thought I can counter it. Soon as the thought is over I consiously think of its counter. So if the intrusive thought involves me yelling at someone once its over I will imagine being nice to that person.
Avatar m tn It continued off and on most of the day , and after dinner, while cleaning up, I tried to ignore what my body was telling me, but ended up slumped over the counter and it felt like there was an elephant on my chest. I was rushed to e.r. I had had a heart attack with a blockage in mid- LAD cleared and stented (the funny thing is that no one could tell me how I got a blockage when I do not have high cholesterol).
Avatar m tn Hello everyone! I am a new member of this site and I would be grateful if you could help me with a health problem of mine. I am 22 years old. Five years ago, when I had to go through our national examinations to go to University, a problem appeared. I started farting at an unusual rate. I thought it was anxiety, so I did not visit a doctor asap. Instead, I waited for my examination period to end before I get an expert's opinion. I was then given some pills.
Avatar m tn I did not choose to quit right now, I am being forced to due to no other option.
1316190 tn?1274080942 I feared without my consciousness I would not sustain the deliberate and forced breathing and I would die. My Therapist didn't believe it came from a panic or anxiety attack because of the onset, my conduct and logical relationship with the events themselves ( I remain unconcerned that this will happen to me again and didnt/doesnt disrupt anything else in my life), and he feels the loss of hearing and ringing noise is a neurological concern.
Avatar f tn There are, though, many over the counter meds now and also prescription ones too. Ask your doctor if it really upsets you and is hard to deal with.

Avatar f tn There might be some over the counter stuff tho to?
Avatar f tn Take any combination of medication unless you check with your Doctor or a Pharmacist first. Many over the counter medications as well as herbal supplements and vitamins can have an adverse affect when taken with prescription medications. I would talk to a pharmacist because they are very knowledgeable about medication, sometimes they know more about them then Doctors!
