    Xanax, Ativan, and Valium are a few medications that could help you with your anxiety

    Patients aren’t the ones who decide which medicine is best– the doctor does (in spite of what the ads tell you).
    All you have to do is ask about treating the anxiety.

    I would give meditation, relaxation and counseling another try before poisoining myself with Ativan. That medecine will put you on a
    downwards slope.

    Physical workouts are very good, either swimming or exercice in a gym. Listen to music, go and see a movie, join a self help group. But believe me dear, stay away from Ativan.

    Good luck!

    Well anti-depressants such as prozac can help reduce anxiety, I’m on it right now and it works for me.

    If you have panic attacks a lot i’d avoid stuff like caffeine…or any kind of “uppers”, legal or illegal.

    This might be bad advice depending on your opinion on marijuana but it MIGHT seriously chill you out. That being said, i’m not suggesting you ALWAYS smoke it, additionally it could be a bad idea if you gain dependency on it.

    BUT depending on your reaction to weed, this could be a VERY bad idea. Weed can trigger the part of your brain involved with paranoia, so if you’re already high strung this could just make things a lot worse, You shouldn’t smoke during a panic attack or in a situation that could induce one, make sure you’re not alone and with someone you trust and feel safe around if you choose to give it a try. But this is SERIOUSLY last resort.

    And don’t listen to anyone who tells you pain killers could chill you out, anything with morphine/ opids of any kind are just flat out stupid unless a doctor recommends it.

    Changes in your diet can help to, cutting out caffeine, drinking chamomile tea…look into it, nutrition is more effective than you’d think!!

    I am with Terra Nostra . This is my own experience that medicines make you dependent of them. It feels like you are getting into a sort of trap.

    I would not take any medication. From personal experience at least. But if you your doctor says its okay should be fine as long as you don’t get addicted. For alternative treatments check out my source.

    Try to find a hobby that relaxes you. Something that takes your mind off of everyday stress. If your having frequent attacks you might want to try some natural medication for anxiety relief. Stay away from synthetics, they are easy to get addicted to. Here something you could try its a natural remedy for immediate anxiety attack relief.

    Unfortunately, practitioners are sometimes too much in a hurry to medicate you. Psychotropic drugs are very addictive, and in a very short time, you might find yourself having to deal with your anxiety AND addiction.

    Furthermore, anxiety is NOT a disease. It is a normal reaction to our stressful way of life.

    Good luck!

    I work in health care and I have noticed that a lot of people with Anxiety take prescribed antidepressant medication. Antidepressant medication is not just prescribed for depression but it can also decrease severity of symptoms of anxiety such as panic attacks, muscle aches, help with sleep problems etc. The good thing is that they are not addictive (although it has side effects if suddenly discontinue use).
    There are also benzodiazepines (e.g. valium) but these are highly addictive. Sleeping medication is also addictive and actually can result in insomnia in the long run.
    I was reading another comment about marijuana use, and marijuana can actually cause full blown panic attacks in some people. You never know what marijuana will do to you, I would avoid it as it could make the problem worse.

    You’ll have to do more research and check with your doctor on all these, but here are some ideas to get you started.

    SSRI’s, and similar drugs, like Paxil, Lexapro, Cymbalta, etc. can be an option, but you’ll probably have to go through months of trying different ones, adjusting dosages, etc. and be aware that withdrawal if you miss doses or quit taking them suddenly can be very dangerous. I recommend them as a last resort only.

    Benzodiazepines like Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Restoril, and Valium can be very effective for anxiety, but are highly addictive and can cause other problems in the long run. An alternative to benzos that is being looked at is niacinamide, which is just a form of vitamin B3 and is over the counter, is being looked at as an alternative to benzos.

    See this article –

    Omega-3 fatty acids(especially in high doses) can also be effective in mood disorders.

    Lithium Orotate is a low dose alternative to prescription lithium and can have beneficial effects on many brain and psychological disorders.

    There are many other herbs, supplements, vitamins, homeopathics, flower essences, gem elixirs, and essential oils that can be of great benefit.
