Avatar n tn So in anyones opinions (and the answers will be appreciated) off knowing just what I have told you what is the best anxiety medicine that any of you have tried with the least side effects?
Avatar n tn Hi RaeJean, I can tell you some general information, but please also see the Child Behavioral Health Forum for information particular to medication. Guanfacine (brand name Tenex) has been used as treatment for hyperactivity, impulsivity, anxiety, irritability, temper tantrums, and tics. It is sometimes used together with a stimulant medication for ADHD.
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 I have anxiety an bipolar disoder, and have been on moer medication then you could possibly imagine (about 21 different ones) right now what we are giving a try is lamactil and topamax. But have you asked your doctor about wellbutrin, it is said to have the least amount of sexual side effects. Well good luck.
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 n tn What medication is best, I don't know, however, please look at all the medication as a temporary fix. I would never say don't take medication, because even though it is tough now, medication did get me through the panic attacks when I was at my weakest.
Avatar f tn Additionally, if your life is dependent on a certain dosage, strength, or formulation of a drug (such as heart or blood medicine), you should keep your prescriptions current and pop the expired pills straight into the trash can. Based on the guidelines described above, you should be ok if you took recently expired Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug that comes in a hard pill form. Though expired, hard pills degrade very slowly and should retain most of their original potency.
1179039 tn?1263997168 I was on Lexapro for about 3 years originally 10 mg and had tapered it down to 3, as I was feeling much better, unfortunately I have had a setback and need new medication. I changed medication 3 days ago and feel really awful, sick, dizzy, weak shaky legs and headaches. Is there anyone here who swapped these medications, and how long did it take for your body to adjust? Thanks a lot for your help.

10701123 tn?1412110753 Hello, I am not on medicine for anxiety. But was wondering what works best? Does it actually take that fluttery feeling away? I am scared of medicine... I don't want to be addicted. And I do want children. Does anyone else use the suck it up method? Because that's just not working for me anymore... I can't suck it up. I hate this constant anxious feeling in my chest. and I hate that I focus on my breathing everyday all day... What medicine would be best? I don't want to feel depressed.
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 Have any moms been put on depression and/or anxiety medicine during pregnancy?
1508698 tn?1360219310 I was given a bottle of natural anxiety medicine right before I went to rehab. I never used them but I'm posting because I know there is such a product. Look it up online to see where you can find it. Sorry I couldn't help more...
Avatar n tn My doctors tried every non narcotic anxiety medicine there is and then stated I dunno what else to tell you, I dont want you on a narcotic. Finally I have had a doctor who prescribed me just colonopin and effexor (effexor which iv'e been taking) and seroquel to sleep. It seems like the best combonation that I've been on so far but I'd like to hear others opinions for chronic anxiety medication combonations.
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 m tn Hello, About a month ago my doctor put me on anxiety medicine due to a panic attack I had in the hospital while my wife was giving birth to our son. A very embarrassing experience for me. Now I should also state that I have been told by my doctor that I "most likely" have low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia. Which contributed to the incident at the hospital. The medication I was initially prescribed for the anxiety is citalopram.
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.
411389 tn?1230128077 My doctor put it best - when taking effexor (plus many other anti-anxiety medicines like that) it gets worse before it gets better - and is the same when you come off of it. You will also find that on here, there are people who are on the medicine side of things and those of us who are on the "as natural as possible" side of things. I am on the latter. I have and occaisionally take Xanax, but am dealing with my anxiety head on using methods that were developed by Dr. Claire Weekes.
3183328 tn?1351187117 What's your opinion on anti anxiety medication? I've been going out more but I have a hard time getting in the car, then I have a hard time getting out. And I freak out. I'm seeing a therapist, and she said it's all up to me. She has anxiety too and she takes medication. So I was wondering which did you have the best results with, do you think i should take a low dosage, and also, what side effects do they have.
758444 tn?1234032217 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 Let your doctor know about the blurriness in your eyes, he will know best what other medication would work for you. We all respond differently to these types of medications, and what one person experiences while taking one....another may not. Celexa and Ativan are in two different classes of medications, which also has to be taken into consideration. Since your have high BP listen to your doctor when it comes to what is best for you. Take care.
Avatar f tn I am sick and tired of panic attacks/ anxiety/ heart palpitations etc etc. What is everyone's thoughts on taking medication for this? I am not so comfortable taking any medication, not even tylenol, but I am so tired of feeling this way.
Avatar f tn What's the best medicine for Anxiety? I am so scared that this will never go away.
