So I've been on several different medications for anxiety. I've taken Buspar, Vistaril, propranolol, and also anti depressants. I have found no relief with any of these medications. what are some others I could see about trying? Thanks in advance.
Hi, for my anxiety I use benzodiazepines as required rather than taking them habitually as a prophylactic. Habitual daily regular use of benzodiazepines leads to medication tolerance, lower effectiveness and drug dependancy. Some anxiety is normal for most people so I tend to find taking medication when it really interferes with my life to be the best solution for me.
Hi! Have you had your thyroid checked and vitamin levels? I have anxiety caused from thyroid issues. I am normally pretty amped up anyway but refuse to be put on medication as I know many people who are and there are always side effects or problems coming off of it. I deal with anxiety naturally. I take 250mg of magnesium supplement as it has been medically proven to assist with calming the body and reducing anxiety. I drink chamomile tea before bed, meditate, exercise 30 minutes daily, and take a B complex vitamin supplement, vitamin D, fish oil, and am getting ready to add hemp oil to my regime. My anxiety came out of nowhere and lasted almost 3 weeks daily off an on. It was terrible! But it was caused from a thyroid med and hormone replacement therapy I was on. Which I'm on day 3 of coming off of, and already feel better. Good luck, and I hope this helps :)
