Anxiety relief for children

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety relief for children


Avatar n tn Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan etc) can be used for immediate relief of anxiety symptoms. At present SSRI's (Serotonin Specific Reuptake Inhibitors) are considered to be the first line of choice for depression and anxiety disorders, the advantage being they are non-sedating and not habit forming unlike Benzodiazepines. To answer the input regarding Coenzyme Q10, I know of no good research to support its efficacy with palpitations or panic disorders. It was hoped to promote cardiovascular health.
Avatar n tn Do not blame yourself for her anxiety. We pass on so many things to our children and got so many things from our parents. It is just the way life goes! Get the complete physical and take it from there. Teach her your techniques, but don't be over protective of her over this. If she knows that you are upset and feels that she is going to feel like this "forever" it will increase the anxiety. Try to down-play it but still listen. It will probably subside on its own.
446896 tn?1237806342 Hey all, I have talked to a few women my age (25-35 range) and they were put on birth control pills for their anxiety & depression. One is taking Yaz and another is wearing the patch. I have also had it said to me many times that the sudden onset of this more extreme anxiety that I have been experiencing the last few months, in addition to the fact that I'm broke out like a 16 year-old, might very well be a hormonal imbalance---too much estrogen maybe.
114870 tn?1210301946 I cant stop these thoughts and starting to believe that my own thoughts are ruining me. Im irritable and stressed out and its affecting my life. I can even be happy anymore. The moment I begin to be happy I start feeling down right away because I feel this dark cloud over me all the time. Im only happy when Im with my Mom. Im married with 2 little kids and I think its also affecting my husband, mainly by the way I am towards him.
203342 tn?1328740807 Ok, I admit it. I have had problems with anxiety for probably years. Some days it seems worse than others, or I can go a long time and be fine. I tend to be a worrier, also a bit of a perfectionist. I'm not depressed. I feel pretty good about myself, for the most part. I have a deep faith and that helps a lot. In the past I've had a lot of problems with fear.
333612 tn?1302886990 I have been abusing benzos in my quest for relief from the anxiety that has plagued me for the past 35 years, but I'm working very hard to get better. But, enough about that,..... this is not about me. A supplement blend that I have found helpful contains valerian root, passion flower, lemon balm and hops. I like this combo a lot. It doesn't provide any sustained relief for me, but then again, I've been so entrenched in the anxiety for so long I really didn't expect it to.
Avatar n tn people with anxiety tend to reach for something tangible to blame their anxiety on, rather than just accept the fact that it really is usually in your head. Celexa completely cured my anxiety... searching for conditions on the internet to further your anxiety is only going to hurt you... As for the arrythmia part of that question, i only know about SVT because its the only one i had, but i know that i was born with it and anxiety doesnt cause it.. it triggers it..
Avatar f tn hi lynn57 ive never tried any meds for anxiety.
398624 tn?1266273049 Can symptoms of anxiety last 24/7? The only relief I get is taking 1 xanax a day, but as soon as the xanax starts to wear off, I feel the symptoms come right back. Can anxiety get that bad?
148057 tn?1231430591 I am one week pp and I have been struggling with anxiety for the last 5 days. It keeps me awake and I am exhausted with my new baby. I am unable to sleep during times when my baby is sleeping. I am lucky if I get 3 hours a sleep per day/night. This is my first baby. I also cry at the slightest thing (which is probably a bit more normal) - but the anxiety is keeping me from feeling excited about my baby - which is a vicous circle because then I have anxiety about not enjoying him!
1518141 tn?1290822755 I have been somewhat able to let this part go....As far as relieving my anxiety...I do have medication for that....that I don't take because it makes me drowsy...I just woke from a nap...and I think I will TAKE IT. Thank you for your reply....just hearing someone reply...and tell me basically...its ok and necessary to let go....makes me feel better. Best wishes to you in 2011 for letting go of some of your worry....and it sounds like you are doing the right thing by reading that book.
Avatar f tn I know I cannot. Yes it's difficult for our children and/or grandchildren to accept and understand CP. It's up to us to educate them. Some we can, some will never understand. I cannot suggest a specific physician for you...sorry. But if you are unable to communicate with your current PMP I encourage you to make an appt to see another. Try goggling PM Clinics or PMP. It should provide you with names and even patient ratings of those in your area. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn endometrial ablation, so make sure that all of those have been discussed with you to your satisfaction before you agree to a hysterectomy. Also, make sure you have all the children you want! As for your new symptoms it is impossible to say at this point whether that is pregnancy-related, or not--only time will tell. Phew! Hope that helped! Best Wishes!
1139187 tn?1355710247 Hi Brucer, I'm also going for the nerve burning for back pain relief from my pain management doc. I had one diagnostic block done which only lasted about 5 mins (I actually think I was pain free durring that time due to all the happy drugs they had given me), I am scheduled for diagnostic test number 2 on the 3rd of next month. Now per my doc they have to do atleast 2-3 diagnostic blocks before they decide if burning will work. Has your doc done more then one test yet?
Avatar f tn Started out with kidney stones and then I was hooked! I have 4 children 2 grandchildren and everybody relies on me for everything including my husband. It was easy when I was on the perc, just pop one and I was super woman. It never use to be that way, I was fine without them. I just want my life back. I pray, take vitamins and drink green tea. The not sleeping is killing me, but everyday I get up and do what needs to be done very reluctantly!
Avatar n tn im a 22 year old male who has had anxiety for about a year now. here just recently my sleeping has been all out of whack. its like im tired but i cant sleep. i lay im my bed for hours trying to sleep and it just seems like i cant get a dream started. sometimes i go all day and night without sleep. i just really want to know, since you,ve said you had insomnia, does that sound anything like it? and if so what can i take to treat it.. any kind of help would be nice.. thank you...
Avatar n tn Oxycotin is supposed to be used in cases where the patient needs to take it for long term use, it is not recommended for post-op pain relief, despite this many doctors still do perscribe it for pos-op pain relief. If your brother tells the doctor that the percocet is not lasting the full four hours maybe he will either switch him over or tell him to take the percocet every 3 hours instead, after my first surgery i was taking percocet 2 tabs every 3 hours for months.
Avatar n tn I masterbated ALOT and I think alot of it was stress and anxiety relief. thank you all for posting on this thread. I think it's a big story that I've not heard much about and would like to hear more from psychology about this, especially related to a reaction to major stress, trauma in the home of a little child. my poor little self, thank god i found some relief for my truamatized nervous system.
Avatar f tn One question - are you sure your son suffers from ADHD? Some of the behaviours you listed are indicative of other disorders. Just a thought ...
Avatar f tn Neurologist had absolutely nothing to say of any assistance - exercise helps but I believe it is just good for me anyway! It does nothing for the relief of symptoms.
Avatar f tn I started out on 25mg I can't imagine starting at 50 since the 25mg made me feel pretty crappy. Infact I just took a 50mg for the first time today, I have been on it for 26 days. I too, am sensitive to meds and HATE taking them. Why not break you tablets in half, that way you can take as little as possible and if it doesn't work you can take a little more. I say let yourself get some relief at this challenging time.
Avatar f tn yes it is its on and off, days worse than others , but thats the answer ,you have to ride the wave and get off when its over, i learn that, its not going to kill me and that it will end soon. i go on with my life and if bad i force myself to get out house go to mall walk around before i know it , its gone, if i had chest pains i would go outside cut grass see if it was really anxiety or heart attack, lucky justs anxiety. you have to work throught it , dont give up ,you will WIN.
900948 tn?1242025637 can't do the normal things a mother does with her children...sometimes the xanax doesn't even relief my attacks...when will this go away...i feel like i can't take another attack...and like i said they come daily...i try to relax myself and it doesn't seem to work...
Avatar f tn I also started taking rescue remedy stress relief from super supplimentstaking this i feel i have less anxiety with my young children. Counseling and meds from doctors are great for those who need stronger meds. My parents both are in your situation and need higher meds. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn If you are now having pvc's I would say you have had anxiety for quite some time. By the way women who have children are prone to have hiatus hernia's according to some medical professionals. Tachycardia is very common to anxiety. Some with anxiety cannot stand to watch a heart beat on television and if they do their own pulse begins to run faster and faster. When they hear someone had died they become nervous and anxiety kicks in. Does any of this sound familiar? YOU CAN BEAT IT.....
Avatar n tn After I stopped that last medication, I felt better for a few days (it was such a relief, I'd forgotten what it felt like to have a normal stomach!) but alas, my body was teasing me. One doctor seemed to just get frustrated at me as I was almost crying during a consultation and told me it was probably just anxiety (such a bulls*** cop-out in my opinion). I KNOW it's not that.
539024 tn?1270582597 Still makes me sad because she'll be getting married soon, her and her boyfriend just bought a condo there (makes the permanence set in for real), and someday she's going to have children that will be too far away for me to ever really be as close as I'd like to be to my grandchildren. I really hope your day gets better.....
Avatar n tn hi, I also take xanax, and while I agree that it helps a great deal for anxiety, it is addicting. Ive been taking them every day for about 7 months and i now i feel like i cant get thru the day w/out them. if i dont take them, i literally feel like im jumping out of my skin, and i wish i had never started taking them. I wouldnt be afraid to take them on an as-needed basis, but if i could go back, i would never have started taking them every day, but thats just me.
