Avatar n tn I noticed on your discussion board that the latter is a generic. Now, what I would like to know is which is the best medicine I should be taking and how should I approach my Endocrinologist for a change in prescription. I want to thank you very much for having this message board to solve problems. This is great and your are to be commended for taking time to answer questions.
758444 tn?1234028617 I would love to find a non addictive form of medication for anxiety. To me they are all the one. Only some are longer lasting. Like Klonopin. It is used for more lasting anxiety sufferers. Not a quick fix for an anxiety attack. But if you ever have to come off it, well, it is the same old problem. Weaning and withdrawls. Just like every other form of medication. Just a case of which one can be used, without losing tolerance, for the longest amount of time. Klonopin wins that race.

Avatar f tn Klonopin doesn't really work as well on an as needed basis as other benzos, because it takes longer to act (and acts longer as well). Benzos aren't sleep medicine, they're anti-anxiety medicine. Given what you say, I'm wondering, is this a general practitioner or a psychiatrist? Because this isn't how klonopin is usually used. Using benzos as needed is better than taking them regularly, because taken regularly they are addictive and hard to stop taking.
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 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 n tn The treatment for selective mutism is a multi-modal approach - usually involving intervention, therapy and possibly medication. If the social anxiety/selective mutism is quite severe, medication will be used to "take the edge off" so that the other methods can be affective. Other therapies as art and play might also be of use - in our area, our psychologist will not attempt CBT with a child until 8 or 9 years of age.

SSRIs are the primary, first line medication used to treat anxiety (aside from the anti-anxiety meds, like Ativan, Xanax, Klomnopin, ertc). Zoloft, an SSRI is THE most commonly Rx'd med for anxiety disorders. Here's a good article to read:
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.
Avatar f tn t any in the allopathic world either -- anyone ever had anyone audit their psychiatrist? Any other doc? I thought not. The best medicine is the one that works best for the particular condition and person without causing more harm. All forms of medicine have their strengths and weaknesses. All forms have their charlatans who are just out to make money off of us. No form has a monopoly on success or failure or honesty or ability.
1508698 tn?1360215710 Hi!! I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestion for a natural anxiety medication. I really don't want to take prescription anxiety medication because there is a chance of addiction and I have a very addictive personality. Thanks!!!
Avatar m tn Hello I have a question about two anxiety medications that I have been take for a very short period of time. I have always suffered from anxiety but never really took medicine for it until this past Sunday I had a terrible panic attack and had to go to the ER. The doctor gave me 1 tablet of lorazepam that was 1 mg. it wasn't really helping and she gave me 5 pills to take home.
404138 tn?1308941656 I dont know anything about meds and I get anxiety BAD, I shake all over and turn red cant focus hyperventalate...etc. What would you say is the best medication to calm my nerves throughout the whole day so I dont go into panic mode...I have heard that xanax helps calm you right down in the midst of an attack, but I need something that will just calm my nerves throughout the day??
Avatar n tn There is no best medicine for depression. It is all based upon different symptoms, chemicals, body chemistry, etc. A lot of time it is trial and error. I have been on most meds switching either because one stopped working, bad side effects or they didn't work. This with combinations of meds over time. Trial and error. But you need to insist that your doctor change your medication. I felt that way on Cymbalta and the withdrawl was almost worse than being on the drug.
Avatar m tn I had my right eye done last month and it has been great and i am due to get my left eye done in about 2 months when my right has finaly settled, however i have a anxiety disorder which i have had for 11months and i have been having a hard time lately, i have a appointment with my docter next week about talking about me going on medication, my question is if i am prescibed any medication i.e anti depressants or benzodiazepines will this have any effect on me getting my right eye laserd.
Avatar f tn The sister drug to Citalopram is Lexapro, which I have been prescribed for depression, but only because I am on 2 mg per day of Xanax, which is the common medication for panic attacks and anxiety. Xanax is in the class of drugs known as "depressants", which obviously will make you "depressed" thus continuing the 3 ring circus of meds, one to depress you , another to fight the depression, and so on.
