Anxiety Medication opinions needed
    #4116837 - 05/01/05 12:32 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)


I'm pretty convinced by now that i have Social Anxiety Disorder.  Basicaly, i get anxiety in certain situations, even tho i know i have nothing to worry about.  My brain cant convince itself.  Anyway, it's been getting to the point where i almost feel it developing into panic attacks, my chest just tightens up and i can hardly breathe.
Before i gotto a doc who's going to perscribe me 400 drugs, i need some of your opinions on this subject, i really need it from ppl who have had experience.

From any website out there, the 1st answer is SSRI.  So ok, great, im thinking problem solved, but then i go and hit a site like this:

http://www.socialfear.com/

So MAOI's are out for now (i hate the food limitation) and that leaves me with new gen anti-depressant, which wont have as many side effects, but most likely wont work, or klonopin.
I cant afford to 'mix' like this guy suggests.

I was gonna go with klonopin but then i read posts like s2dope's down there http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/4097470/an/0/page/0
and it scares me away.

So really, i dont want my sex drive gone, i'd like my anxiety releived a bit. What can i do?  Is klono really that bad.
I'm already practicing mental exercises.

I don't know jack nor squat about medications for anxiety, but express
your concerns to your doctor when you do go.

They're more flexible than you might think.

Klonopins are benzos, and as such are habituating. But then again, they're great for SAD. To add, I have a friend with SAD, and Paxil works quite well with him. And I've heard just therapy can help as well. I guess you'll have to weigh the benefits of each to determine what's best for you. I don't have SAD (or at least the more common form of it) so that's about all I can tell you. Wish I could be of more help to you....

Its all in your head.

Get off the drugs, and change your views...

It'll save you time, trouble, and $, and best of all... it doesn't require a prescription.

Hey Man!

I suggest you try herbs like Kava Kava or Valerian before you decide to use chemical medications. You may be surprised they they work just as well with less side effects. I also suggest you get into cognitive behavioural therapy for social anxiety disorder, so you will one day be able to handle social situations with ease without the help of meds or herbs.

Take care!

Thank u for all your opinions. I'll keep all the advice in mind.

Well exept 'Psychoactive1984'. I'm not some toddler who thinks the wind is gonna hurt me. Saying it's all in my head is either just overstating the obvious, or just incredibly ignorant.
I hardly use drugs for your info.

I'm trying to find something to relieve me from something that i have tried to get rid of (without any Rx) for years.

Glad you saw my post. Definitely don't jump straight into benzos.

I regret it like hell every day. Then again, sometimes you have no other option. I didn't.

Before you even try an SSRI, try Wellbutrin. I've tried a shitload of SSRI's that are supposed to help with depression and anxiety, and altho some helped with depression, none helped with anxiety as much as Wellbutrin does.

Also, Wellbutrin doesn't diminish trips. Just can't take DXM on it is all.

benzos suck dick, as i said in the other thread i used to be hooked to several benzos and getting rid of them was plain shitty.. and even though they made me feel better for short periods in the long run they only made all the issues they were supposed to help worse.. you?ll be better off trying to figure out how to cope with those feelings sober cause you cant eat those drugs forever anyways

I have the same trouble. Going to the doc's soon. I am going to try to get put on Prozac. It helps with both depression and general social anxiety. There are minimal side effects with this medication from what I hear.

If you're looking to get an SSRI I'd suggest getting a newer generation... less side effects.
