How much does anxiety medicine cost

Common Questions and Answers about How much does anxiety medicine cost


Avatar m tn My prescribing physician does not treat me with anti-anxiety medications. I do take diazepam once in a great while for severe muscle spasms as the usual "muscle relaxers" were not very effective for me. But that med is prescribed in addition to pain medications. It is not what I call a primary medication....just a "helping" one. The local clinics in my area are very reluctant to prescribe anxiety medications.
Avatar f tn I also have different days, not like a bipolar person or anything but sometimes I can be more relaxed and not as much anxiety. I did something recently with some friends, and ever since my anxiety hasn't really been bothering me.. or not that I have noticed yet anyway. I won't say anything to what it is, but I think it's just what I needed. As much as I seemed closed up, I am also very open. I am much different than most people, being an infp type as well as a libra/horse, it all mixes.
1515545 tn?1291399364 I'm afraid of going to the grocery store because of several things actually, but one of them being that I know when I get home I KNOW no matter how much I've followed the list that HE MADE OUT, I will get yelled at, badly. I either will have bought the wrong food or been gone too long or spent to much money (even if I stay within the budget he originally gave me). About a year ago, I told him I didn't care if we all starved, I was never ever going grocery shopping again. NEVER.
Avatar n tn What dosage are you taking? How frequently? For how long? For what purpose? It is an addictive medicine. Opiates are also a Godsend for people in severe pain. Most other pain can medicated with nonaddictive drugs depending on what kind it is. The short answer is that if you take enough of it long enough you will be come physically dependent. If you like the high and deliberately take it for the effects and take enough of it long enough you will become an addict.
551343 tn?1506834118 I was laying awake last night in so much pain thinking to myself how much longer can I cope with this cr*p its wearing me out now. I had a phone call from my GP on Friday she got a letter from my neurologist who has told her he wants me to see a rheumatologist and to arrange it ASAP. The last person she wrote to declined as she said all my symptoms are neurological and although my neuro knows a lot are he thinks and has always thought that there is more than one thing going on.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure why you can't see a psychologist without your parents' permission -- I think I saw my first one at seventeen without my parents knowing, though he wasn't much help. But of course there's the money issue; back then it didn't cost much. What I recommend is that you look on this site and others and find plenty of descriptions of the symptoms of anxiety attacks. Yours certainly sound like the beginnings of them to me and I've suffered with them for many many years.
Avatar f tn then see doctor montly at $75 a month. Plus required counseling and prescription costs. I didnt realize finding help would cost so much and be complicated to start. I have no idea how I can go to work while in whithdrawal and I cant get off work..seems so hard to start this. I can't lose my job..have to keep up the act but am running out of the energy to continue it. I'm a single mom with a toddler and 2 teenagers that need me and deserve so much more from me.
Avatar f tn someone I think Deb said Provigil to stay awake, looking at the possible side effects I am worried about anxiety as I already have that so if you know about this medicine by the am or others please reply. he is not the brightess of Doc's so I need to go in informed! Also on another post you all recommend getting insurance first, okay how do I do that? honestly I heard it is hard to get and I think I am going to need it really quick. All I have now is SS if I need it and that is not much.
3581773 tn?1349125510 I have to agree with Paxilled. (My opinion)....there are much better first line choice meds for anxiety. While Effexor is a good med for some. it has a pretty big reputation for being a bear to come off of later, and it can be quite activating, which can actually make anxiety worse.. I'm assuming this med was prescribed by your PCP... as in your other thread, you said you were on a waiting list for a psychiatrist?
Avatar m tn I don't get anxiety due to me worrying that people are looking at me or judging me, I really don't care how others perceive me, it's just an overwhelming anxiety of being near people (aside from family), I also cannot talk to people almost entirely, most days when I go to college I don't speak at all. My therapist says my case is interesting as I have spent years trying to practice getting better at talking to people but nothing seems to work.
Avatar f tn I meant to add, a book called Natural Highs by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA, can help you get an overview of how to use natural remedies to help. As for drugs, there's not much out there that's truly strong enough to fight a panic attack, but learning how to meditate and breathing exercises and the like can help a lot, but again, you have to pay to learn how to do it generally.
Avatar m tn Working out makes you sweat, clears out the lymphatic system and moves food through your system much more efficiently. How much better do you think you’d feel if you were detoxing all four ways and evacuating 2-3 times per day? Smoking: I usually get a flare-up a month or two after I quit smoking. Quitting cigarettes is easy for me, but it always triggers the colitis and I end up going back.
Avatar f tn Talk to ur Dr about ur magnesium levels, if they r low no matter how much Vit D u take ur body can not absorb it, u need the magnesium as they work hand in hand..... B12 is something u would also need.
Avatar f tn They probably wont prescribe Benzos to you so it will be between SSRI, and SNRI, or Cognitive Behavior Therpay which is medication free. How severe is your anxiety, and is it GAD, Panic Disorder, OCD or all of them?
967168 tn?1477588089 When I checked online at the private hospital how much it would cost it was up above 10,000€ then my petrol expenses as well. (hospital was 4 hours each way) AND I didn't have to wait at all. I really don't know how you cope as I know I wouldn't have had the money to pay for any procedure myself.
Avatar f tn I have been back to docs they suggested cognitive book to help with anxiety. I also saw a hypno, but the feelings remain no matter how I attempt to channel my mind. The therapies put a positive frame of mind on it, but underneath its still present any help it similar problems.
808293 tn?1238605783 By the time we came back from our vacation, all of the stress and worry has really started to take it's toll on me, physically and mentally, and I ended up waking up at 4 in the morning on March 8, I had Gaby take me to the emergency room, where I got my diagnosis of epididymitis, and perhaps at this point everything would have been fine, but unfortunately for me, one of the aids the doctor prescribed was an anti-nausea medicine that, unbeknownst to me, was known to cause anxiety and fear.
Avatar m tn Yes, I have an idea--go to another doctor! How does having a fantastic imagination rule out Asperger's? This dr. doesn't know what he's talking about! Aspie's live in this fantastic imagination! ADHD traits are commonly found with Aspie's, and they often hyperfocus. You need to find someone who truly understands Asperger's. "Normal" kids do not flap in the first place for it to become a habit. The fact that you have an Aspie in your family makes it highly likely your son is.
Avatar n tn Well I don't exercise as much as you but I need to. I have never gained this much weight so I'm a bit scared of how my body will look like. My tummy is jiggly as well, I don't tuck my tummy in my stomach, "I tuck it in my pants" Lol!. My arms are so big even when I was skinny and they are starting to feel jiggly as well. I'm going to Wal-mart today and I will look for the Body Fortress. I also have those Special KBliss (w/orange) but I hardly crave any sweets or icecream.
931415 tn?1244681111 Consequently, whether fair or unfair, she represents the perfect face to put on the problem that we supporters of science-based medicine face when trying to get the message out to the average reader about unscientific medical practices, and that’s why I am referring to the pervasiveness of pseudoscience infiltrating medicine as the “Oprah-fication” of medicine. How does Oprah do it? Easy (for her, at least).
Avatar n tn If you don't mind, I would like to ask you a question too. How much tylenol does a person have to take over a period of time to development liver problems? I take tylenol pm every night and have for the past 12 years. Do you see a problem with that. What I am taking is 650mg of tylenol and the sleep aid in this is called Diphenhydramine (which is benadryl I think) Thank you in advance.
Avatar m tn Has anybody else been through this? If so, how long does it take to feel like you've come down completely, or will it ever even go away? Could it be withdrawals, or can you even have withdrawals from something that's not physically addictive? How long will it take my vision to be normal? Have I done permanent brain damage? Are there any ways to speed up the healing process besides taking prescription drugs?
Avatar m tn How long does Effexor XR withdrawal last? I understand the time frame will be different for everyone, but I'm assuming there is a general window that most people fall into? A few weeks? Months?? Some background: I've only been on anti-depressants for four months. I was first put on Zoloft while I was inpatient for an eating disorder, but it didn't seem to do anything. Two months ago I was switched to Effexor 150mg/day, as well as Neurontin 900mg/day.
Avatar dr m tn Many people with panic disorders can be treated either conservatively with therapy of stress control and relaxation methods, but many people end up being placed on an anti-anxiety medications. Any time I see patients in my practice with anxiety disorders, in almost every case, the person prefers not to sleep on his or her back. The reasons for this is that due to certain anatomic factors, if the person lays flat on his or her back, then due to gravity, the tongue falls back partially.
Avatar f tn You're NOT going crazy, but I hear you that it FEELS like you are! I felt the same way and I only cut back on my medicine, so I can only imagine how you feel. Tell yourself that you know you are strong.'ve done this before and while taking MORE medicine than you take now. You did it before, you can do it now!! You have to!!! The fact that you came here and posted your story says that you are ready.......doesn't it?! I am going to go out for my walk now. I only took 1.
Avatar n tn i am planning on going to the store and getting Monistat. I have not told my mum and i dont know how to tell her. It hurts so much too pee that i try not to eat or drink anythign so i wont have to pee. When i use the medications how long will it take to make the pain fade and be able to pee without pain. im really scared, and frustrated. i cant walk or sit without it hurting.
Avatar m tn I think we're over some sort of hump, b/c like you, I feel a lot better. Does it ever go away? Not sure I'm much of an expert on that, but I imagine that it never really does. I think it just sort-of lies dormant within us, waiting to hop onto some other potential addictive quality that might present itself in our lives (food, gambling, rage, sex, love, alcohol, exercise, danger, spending, etc.).
Avatar n tn So hang in there a little bit longer you will see life is so much better clean. I promise. How old are your kids anyway? I have to log off but I will post again later tonight. Remember to breathe deeply when craving hits it will pass in just a few minutes you'll see.
