Concerta vs Anxiety

Hi Everyone.

Anyone that may suffer with GAD may find this useful, or atleast save some money.

I went to see a Psychiatrist for the first time on Monday, told him exactly my situation, i have GAD for about 4 years, i have all the symtoms of severe anxiety, he then followed with questions about how i was in school etc, so i told him the truth, i was disruptive, lacked concentration, and basically had low self confidence, so then he came to a conclusion, that i may have ADD with which i did agree, because of the concentration part, but the medication he had put me on, has made me get suicidal thoughts, extreme nervousness, and more then hightened anxiety, so quite frankly, anyone that is considering taking meds, please if you do not have medical aid, do not just take the medication without researching it first, i was loosing hope, so i was desperate to get sorted out, but i will not trust another doctor with medication.

Becuase ultimately, you know how you feel, and medication that you may feel could work for you, would possibly work, most of these doctors, want you coming back, to give an anxiety sufferer medication like this, from just talking to them for half an hour, is completely wrong.

An exclusion from Concerta is severe anxiety, and it gives symtoms like complete nervousness, insomnia, and depression.


If anyone can give me info on Anxiolytic medication, i'd appreciate it, because anti depressants do not help me.
