Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety relief for children


Avatar f tn I was on SSRIs for about 2 years, but decided to come off. I am having issues with my anxiety again and would like to use medication as a last resort. I am wondering what other alternatives are out there. I have been thinking about trying a negative ion bracelet and acupuncture.
Avatar f tn About 3 months ago her panic and anxiety seem to be gettting worse. We do not know of any cause for this. She landed in the hospital twice in one week recently due to the panic attack. I took her to a psychiatrist and he put her on Zoloft. She has only been on it for about a week and has lost most of her appitite. I know she needs something to help control these attacks. I been against medicine for the past couple of years.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am so sorry for your family's loss. It sounds like your nephew is experiencing anxiety.. I myself am 23 years old and suffer from anxiety as well and at times when sitting especially when eating I find myself rocking. This is not only a response to anxiety but it's also a way of self comfort. I would recommend that your nephew speaks with a therapist as soon as possible because it's very easy for this anxiety to spiral out of control.
1711940 tn?1308352692 my 24 lb **** tzu/ beagle mix has his own prescription for xanax .5 mg for thunderstorm anxiety. it was prescribed by his cardiologist and his regular vet doses have to be 12 hrs apart as needed...
556935 tn?1215720270 25 mg of Xanax. Everything we have read says that it has not been evaluated for safety and effectiveness in children and is not generally prescribed for them. What we need to know is, is it ok for her to take them? Should we take her to see another Doctor and have something else given to her or should my husband speak to her counselor about the supposed symptoms, since they aren't something that we have ever encountered when she has been with us? Please give us some advice.
341903 tn?1225388712 Anxiety in and of itself is quite painless. What anxiety can cause OUR MINDS to make our bodies feel is another story. We can not tell you what meds you should take or even if you should take any. You need to see your doctor about the pain you are having and let him/her rule out a physical cause for it. Then you can discuss dealing with the anxiety.
Avatar f tn Well, Wikipedia says that it is used for "Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) of mild to moderate intensity, with or without panic attacks (it is not generally considered to be effective against other types of anxiety disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and social phobia, with or without agoraphobia). # Augmentation of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) therapy against depression and/or anxiety.
Avatar n tn Im so confused as to this anxiety thing, in all the websites and workbooks I read I have no symptoms and no reasons for anxiety and especially to have such unregualted breathing. Its scaring me to death and makig it worse, Im sure.
Avatar f tn Wow! I have to say how nice it is to know you are not a freak and that other people have this horrible problem. I can go back as far as 7 years of age and remember having anxiety, It's so sad to think a child would have to deal with such a thing. I now take Lexapro and feel alot better. Not 100% but I guess as good as it's gonna get for me. I recently noticed alot of anxiety signs in my 9 year old daughter. It's apparently something you can pass on to your children.

Avatar m tn I take 2000mg Gabapentin for Neuropathic pain Relief qid(8000mg daily) and 60mg of Cymbalta daily. I have a broken spine due to my service related injury incurred while serving in the Canadian Forces Regular Forces(Army). I take care of three young children while my wife is at work. I am in a level ten pain 24/7. The Gabapentin gives me a couple hours of level 8 pain in the afternoon. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Even with the hydrocodine and neurontin I recently tried steriod injection but now my work has been severely limited in my work and I own and run a school for children with autism. My lame doctor who can even remember my name in 20 years just accused me of being a drug addict cause I had to take 8 hydrocodine in one day be cause I really over did it with may back and was headed for an ER visit. Usually I on take from 3 to 5 a day depending on the pain.

2117997 tn?1339537769 How about you see your doctor, get honest and allow him/her to prescribe you something for your anxiety. If it is that bad that you should see your doctor anyway. I hate to see you get caught in another bad situation.
