I have never done illegal drugs, dont drink, have a bottle of percocet that is 3 yrs old. I never take whole pills, and only take these... I have xanax,librium,celexa,wellbutrin,zoloft, none of these work for me, and benzo's make me feel more depressed and cry alot. with the narco I live my life, go places , parties, shopping , smile , talk to strangers ect, without them... I am a hermit , barely talk to my husband , stay depressed, extreme panic and anxiety, are there meds that actually help this? I didnt even want to ask this question because I know pain killers are a major problem now and I dont want ppl to think I am an addict...
Hi there, giooggy! I've had agoraphobia for over 25 years and I've found that there isn't a drug on the market that can help. Let me know if you find one, if you could be so kind. Agoraphobia is a very lonely illness. We can chat anytime if you want. I'll friend you. Then we can talk privately. We need each other. There aren't very many agoraphobics to talk to who understand. I don't think your an addict. It would be a guess that you might have a little Social Phobia. I don't know. I'm not a Dr.. I do know that I have it, and my son has it and maybe I recognize the symptoms. Who knows? I went on an 8 mos. stay with my son, and only left his place, maybe 6-7 times. I've come to the realization that I don't think I like people. OMgosh! Isn't that awful? I want to like people, but they seem to suck the happiness out of me. We can talk more when no one sees our post. Take care and God bless you, my new Friend. Anna
In response to you question/comment:
Super long story short. 17 years old I accidentally shot/killed my 17 year old friend. I'm 35 now and have PTSD bad. Zoloft, and about 10 other meds have not helped me. Few years ago I broke my rib, took percocet for pain.
Put it this way, I want to be part of a study that proves that opiate usage in a directed form that's safe from abuse, it has worked for me 10 fold. Good or bad? Legal or illegal? All I can state for myself and my situation is that a few percocets a day allowed me to function. When I am off them, I'm not a one to be around, sadness, depression,restless, angry, scared, fuzzy thinking, afraid, etc...
My family (wife states get off perx or divorce) I have 5 children with my wife, so such a threat is nothing shy of bully. If you can manage the percocets at a safe manor and not going crazy with them, In my opinion I do not see the reason for alarm. These are my opinions based off my use and experience. Of course Doc may differ, or some agree, go with the ones whom have conducted tests regarding this.
Sounds hippy"ish" but it's not. Like I said, for my situation, Lithium, xanax, and a dozen other meds DID NOT WORK. 3-4 perx per day, helped me by leaps and bounds.
I have agoraphobia so bad that I cannot leave my house even with my daughter any more. I have had it most of my life, but overcame it for about 25 years. When I retired, it gradually came back and now it is worse than it ever was. I was wondering if electro shock therapy would make me forget I'm afraid all the time.
