Question by erin b: What medication would you recommend for anxiety?
I’m waiting for an appointment with a doctor but i was wondering what kind of anti-anxiety medications work for others? I usually won’t take any medications because everything makes my stomach hurt but my panic disorder has gotten so bad that i can’t take it anymore. I have tried hypnosis and therapy and a few medications when i was younger but nothing works. I would appreciate anything you have found that helps and what the side effects were. Thanks.

    Everyone thinks a ‘pill’ is the answer.

    I suggest facing the problems and deal with the anxiety by seeking counseling that can help you through it.

    I am on Paxil for anxiety and panic attacks. It has changed my life for the better.

    I have never been happier and it’s worked wonders on me. However,it does come with side effects. Known to have the most severe withdrawal symptoms and supposedly the most potent one there is.

    There are negative parts,but the good outweighed the bad for me.

    They can give you nerve pills but don’t like to because a lot of people get hooked on them. Anti depressants worked great for me.

    Side effects for me were:

    Shakiness
    Easy brusing
    Easy bleeding
    Nausea
    Weak legs
    Headaches

    (These only lasted for a week or two after i started taking the medicine)

    Effexor XR

    Oxazepam is a good one. also lorazepam (usually the ones that end in “pam” If you goto webmd they list meds for depression and anxiety/ panic attacks. most people with panic attacks are usually somewhat depressed.

    Raw cacao or dark cocoa powder mixed into a drink; no reported negative side effects.

    St. John’s Wort, tea, tincture, and/or anything but the “standardized to-” shit; slight sunlight sensitivity, but nothing to worry over.

    Exercise; no negative side effect, unless you injure yourself. Exercise triggers the release of chemicals that relax you and put you into a good mood.

    A natural food diet that consists primarily of raw plant food with sides of fresh, lightly cooked fish and poultry; no negative side effects, except for allergies.

    Sexual activity; no negative side effects, other than the risk of STDs. Remember that masturbation is ‘natural’ and healthy. There is no standard amount for a day, if you know what I mean, so gauge it to your needs.

    And…

    Your doctor will tell you that all of these ideas are bogus. Then he’ll tell you to buy a drug. He will also tell you that chocolate (not cacao or dark, unsweetened cocoa powder) has caffeine in it, which it doesn’t (theobromine, one methyl group away, caffeine’s sister chemical), and that St. John’s Wort is either dangerous or ineffective and a waste of money. He’ll tell you that you might find something with exercise, but that you should be doing it anyway, which you don’t, and that a natural diet is a great way to live a longer life, but it won’t cure “anxiety,” which is apparently a ‘disease.’ If you get around to mentioning masturbation, watch his face closely!

    I am now in my 50s and have had anxiety problems all my life.Anti depressants and beta blockers don’t work for me.If I am having a real bad day I take 5ml of diazapam{valium} just takes the edge off of it.You have to accept that anxiety is a human emotion and with some of us it is out of control.Go to anxietyuk.org there is a lot of help and advice there for you they have 30,0000 members I am one.You are not alone there are thousands of us.You will find your own way of coping with time.Read Claire Weekes Self Help For Your Nerves and Essential Help For Your Nerves and you will get an insight into your symptoms.I wish you Well

    I am currently taking Niacinimide. It’s a vitamin. It supposedly works like a benzodiazepine (xanax like drugs). No side effects that I’ve noticed other than finding a lot of the sources of my anxiety since I get to feel the underlying feelings and not just an intense anxiety reaction. Get it at puritan’s pride. Buy 2 get 3 free. It’s so cheap.

    My first was Lexapro, it didn’t work. Then I worked my way to Paxil CR, which worked but brought on 30 pounds. I’ve been on welbutrin sr, zoloft, cymbalta, prestique, all of them took away my panic attacks and faded my anxiety attacks but brought on extra weight and derealization/depersonalization. I feel like i’m living in a fog, like a zombie. I just recently got off all meds, and mysteriously lost 8 pounds of the 70 i gained while on them. Everyone is different, everyone’s body is different, the best thing to do is try diff ones until you find whats best for you. And don’t let anyone say that the pill isn’t an answer, some people do not know how it is to be in a situation like this and automatically think it’s so easy to train your thoughts. If you need antidepressants then you need them. Not everyone is capable of beating this horrid disorder on their own. I’ve been on them for 5 years, I simmered down, and finally thought it was time to go on my own. And so far so good. So anyways, good luck with your meds, and remember either let your doc pick for you, or let him/her know which one you’d like to try. You might have to go through a couple before you find the right one. Don’t get discouraged, they can be such great help when you do find the right one.
