i want him on something with out bad side effects, paxill is not working.
Xanax is not recommended for long-term use and is very addictive. I world recommend you see a professional - a psychiatrist, who has experience with this. Has your son had a complete physical? Sometimes physical problems, hormone imbalances, etc. can cause anxiety. Please get him a good evaluation to determine is causing the anxiety. Therapy can be very effective in treating anxiety once physical causes have been ruled out. There are medications that can help, such as Buspar, that are not addictive. Also alternative treatments can help - homeopathy, herbal, supplements. Chiropractors can even help anxiety if the cause is an imbalance somewhere in the body. Sorry to give you such an array of suggestions - 15 is so young to face a lifetime of anxiety. Please do get him checked out completely - and, if the cause is not physical the hope would be that therapy could help treat the cause. Then the anxiety would be gone. Regards - ElizaJane
