I was put on Celxa a couple of months ago and it doesn't seem to be working. I have severe anxiety that I need something that works quicker than 30 to 60 mins is there anything out there like that?
Hello Tlynnm6886. I'm not going into benzodiazepines, only because they can be and are extremely addictive, and doctors are hesitate to prescribe them for that reason to begin with. Times have changed whereas 20 years ago they were prescribed much as any other drug. So, benzos aside I suggest either lexapro or paxil. I've been on all 3 of these drugs and found to date paxil works fairly quickly and with the least amount of side-effects. Best wishes,
Dear Tlynnm... if you put a xanax under your tongue and let it 'melt' there and then be absorbed it will work in five minutes. There are many capillary beds and blood supply to the mouth area especially under the tongue... so give this a try. I hope that you feel better and that your anxiety is less...
tlynnm6886, that would deffinately be xanax. my anxiety/panic/depression is so out of wacked rite now that my dr had prescribed me xanax half mg to take twice a day. but being it makes me so tired the next day, i really dont like taking it. so what i do is when i feel a panic/anxiety comming on, if i cant bring it down by journalling or talking to others or my coloring in coloring book, i will then take a xanax, within about 15 minutes it helps. try and ask your dr what he/she thinks or how they feel about prescribing you a benzo. hope this helps and hang in there, it will get better in time. leanne
