Hello Fellow Members:
I'm Abby, I have been looking up medication for my nerves, I'm currently taking Risperdal, Ativan, Lamica. Don't get me wrong they do but the anxiety gets pretty bad. Or it is just I need to get my medication adjusted.
Will somebody tell me their experience, because their are so many side effects it leave s me skecipical (wrong spelling) about this particular in this medication. Or maybe this meds isn't what I'm looking for?
Thank you in advance
I was given Trazodone for anxiety, the side effects (for me) were not worth it so we stopped it. I agree you may need adjustments to your present scenario. Hope this helps.
That is what I thought, the side effects are horrible... too much. psychiatrist tomorrow afternoon I was looling around to see my options, but I'll leave the meds as they are now.
It is good to hear you are going tomorrow as I have mentioned & others the medications you are taking for your anxiety as what you are taking is not working. I can't remember if this is a new dr. or not.
My recommendations are the most important thing you can do to help you & your dr. is to write down All of the medication with the dosage & frequency amount thou take of each drug. He will need this to be very efficient to make sure he gives you something that will work well with your other drugs.
I would also make a seperate list of the past medications that you have taken for your anxiety.
If you are able to provide this information it will help him decide what to put you on. Oh yeah, make sure that you also take a list of your conditions you have. By doing all of this he will be able to elimante what drugs you have taken & be sure that he doesn't try a drug that is
Similair to one that you know did not work for you before.
Plus the added bonus to have all this information written down you will not forget once you are there. plus it saves extra time he can spend talking to you.
So now you have your homework & hopefully he can give you something that works well for you. I know what a hard time you have been having with your nerves. Then when your nerves are out of control the pain amplifies like crazy.
So if they can get your nerves under control it will help you with that awful pain. Good luck my friend let me know how it goes tommorow, have a good night. Kathy
