Common Questions and Answers about How to cure anxiety in children


Avatar m tn But, this anxiety disorder is highly treatable - be sure to ask for a specialist with experience in anxiety disorders. After reading the above site (and perhaps other sites on the internet), please write back if you have any additional questions. I wish you the best ...
Avatar n tn I belong to a support group for teachers and parents of children suffering from anxiety. Many of the children take medication - including Celexa. About four children in our group are on this medication (all in conjuction with intervention and/or therapy). For these children, this "drug" seems to work the best with the fewest side effects. Our child takes Celexa - before that Prozac and Effexor. Celexa is the best one for her - so far.
1539037 tn?1294322228 I am not free of anxiety but I am in charge. So I came here in hopes of being able to help others and also seek help when I think I may need the support. I hope that helps! I typed probably more than you wanted and I am sorry for that!!!!
203342 tn?1328740807 I just don't seem to know how to let go and relax. I am interested in a Naturopathic or Homeopathic doctor but I don't know if I could afford that and I don't know if any would take my military insurance. I'll have to check all of that out. Greenlydia, I have one more question for you, if you don't mind. Can a 4 year old show anxiety? And if so, what's the best way to help him?
Avatar n tn Although marketed as an antidepressant, is has also been shown to be effective in anxiety disorders (e.g. panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and social phobia). Ask your doctor about which of these is best for you. Hope this helps!

Avatar f tn The answer to that is yes, unfortunately that's exactly how I felt before I knew I had to start treatment. That's what is called an anxiety attack where you need to lay down and that still doesn't make it all better. Anxiety and depression cause these symptoms to your body and mind.
Avatar m tn A very good question and one I cannot remember seeing asked in the 4 years I have been monitoring this forum. It is technical enough that you would, I think, definitely want a doctors opinion. I would certainly go back to your psychatrist for that opinion. I believe they are the only ones with the training to give you that information. And if your present psychiatrist cannot - ask for a referral to one who can. Good Luck.

Avatar m tn Often our depression has a root cause which is normally a traumatic event from our past which we never truly dealt with or may have forgotten. This comes back in the form of depression and/or anxiety demanding to be dealt with. If this is your case then therapy would greatly benefit you in helping you learn what the event with it and ease your depression. For some of us we never know why we are depressed and medication is our only hope.

Avatar n tn this person will understand you and in an effort to try to alleviate your concerns by telling you how HIV is transmitted and how there really is no risk to your children by being around someone with HIV, skinned knees or not. :) Your kids are #1. Keep it that way and **** what everyone else thinks.
1086863 tn?1278633915 By 30 I had four children to raise. Any anxiety issues were smothered so I could be the best mother possible . Still I managed. My first crash came 2 yrs after a divorce, was while I was in college. I was in early 40s. Putting myself through college on my own. I remember being in classes discussing how awful it was that studies showed many elderly people were taking anti anxiety meds. I was sure education was the answer to all social problems.
Avatar f tn I think for you, possibly, the best course of action would be to find that courage to get tested NOW, (even though you have no need to) get your negative results and then get into therapy to deal with all the fear and grief you've had in your life. If you don't owe it to yourself to crawl out of the hole you're in, you do owe it to your children.
Avatar f tn Hello to all - I would like to say first and foremost- I do hope that you find a cure to your condition. Especially, this strange disorder of body smells and breath disorders. My situation began when I was fourteen and I am now forty-two. I remember the first time that my bad breath was noticeable - at a wedding of my fathers and stepmothers mutual friend. My stepbrother told me I smelled liked poo. I didn't doubt him for I could taste a weird ,nasty taste in my mouth.
Avatar f tn I'm exhausted, I'm broken inside, crying all the time, can't stand him close to me or even touching me or even simple hug .... When I see him in his underwear I'm asking him to put clothes on.this is how I'm reacting. I can't talk to him normally all the time I'm making comments related to this woman. I don't know myself what hurts me more.
1771101 tn?1314107109 I have taken the Klonopin twice and it makes me feel weird, dispalced, and drowsy. I am a widowed mother of 4 children ages, 2,3,7, and 8 and I need to maintain some form of sanity to care for my children. I was very hesitant about taking medication and am hoping to have some success with Zoloft.
4173379 tn?1355360151 Which is what I was wondering about in my original post, understanding how it all relates to treatment, and how I can help him with the anxiety surrounding the side effects and chances of him becoming virus free...
Avatar n tn I have seen people in restuarants call ambulances because they thought they were dying from a heart attack and it turned out to be anxiety. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I was rushed to a hospital by ambulance..gee all that money I spent. 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.
Avatar n tn Dear fastsilicon and 2monkeys, I lived with terrible anxiety for years, an unbearable sense of vertigo, as though the earth were tilted and I was about to fall off. I had to have a drink of wine before picking up my children from school! (A drink in order to drive!) Virtually by accident I found that Clonapin (clonazepam) cured this miserable condition. I can do all the things other people do now, even travel, and I can't imagine having to live like that ever again.
Avatar n tn As for church, I don't know how to help that. Lots of people have crowd anxiety and unforunately the only way to help it is to expose to crowds and try to manage it as well as possible. Hope this can help!
Avatar f tn We are never going to be OCD-free but rather we need to have good tools in place to combat it when our minds decide to go to the dark side. And BTW...I was a teenager in the late 70s, early 80s...I know exactly what you are talking about. I had HIV irrational thoughts as well and they kind of came and went for a few years.
Avatar n tn I dont see a decrease in sex drive except for the feelings of rather avoiding the whole situation due to the stress. I have to go to the docs again in a week to let him know whats going on. Im going to ask about viagra and cialis as well as wellbutrin. I also am checking out the program that stressandanxiaty posted above.
652671 tn?1353715765 But you have the power to control it. That is my point. Can be hard to learn how to control it. Best way to start is not to give your heart so much attention next time you imagine there is something wrong. The less you focus on it, the less you will notice. Every little ache and pain some anxiety sufferers tend to make a lot worse. They begin to panic. Thus making the situation a lot worse. Have you tried any form of theraphy? You'll hear the same things I am saying here.
Avatar m tn ---- I can't get into a car when someone else is driving because I dont have control of the car. I know how it feels to be in your situation trust me.... You have to do it for yourself, or you will get worse. Take it from someone who has been there, and is there! I sincerly hope you overcome this phobia.
3060903 tn?1398568723 If you’ve been relying on an anti-anxiety drug to keep your anxiety in check, you may lose confidence in your own abilities to deal with life’s difficulties and start to think you “need” the medication to survive. You may be dependent on benzodiazepines if: You have taken benzodiazepines for four months or longer. You rely on your pills to cope. You have ever cut down or stopped taking your pills and have felt ill or anxious or experienced unusual symptoms.
Avatar n tn My daughter is going to be 7 in march . We have had great loss in our family in the last couple of years , and they have effected her more than i thought . She is a very smart ,tall and mature looking 6yr.old so people expect more from her ! She has adapted very well for the most part . Last night she started banging on her head w/her hand, saying " please just make me normal again " . i nearly **** my pants ! i thought she was going crazy !!!!!!
Avatar m tn You don't need to keep your family safe, you need to move on from the notion you have herpes! Your tests clearly show you're negative, you've never had herpes symptoms (what you describe are not alone herpes symptoms) - and a one time oral encounter is very low risk for herpes transmission to begin with. Those of us who do have genital herpes will never transmit it to our kids - we don't have that sort of contact with them! It's called an STD for a reason!
Avatar n tn I, too, suffer anxiety and I get tingling in my shoulders, down my arms and to my fingertips. Very scary, I know. Yes, the anxiety tends to slow down when we are outside or busy, our minds are occupied, but when we're inside, we do have all the time to think about it. Did the Urgent Care prescribe you anything?
