Re: Severe Anxiety with other medications
If xanax worked for me i know i'd be hooked, just for the fact that my axniety is so bad, atleast you are able to go out and do things! Even going outside to get the mail bothers me. I lucked out though, the SSRi's i took caused no side efefcts, but another problem was they didn't work lol, was Paxil and lexapro. Have you had any luck with klonopin? i'm going to see if my doctor will let me try it next and maybe see about another SSRI, i just don't know which one.
Sorry for getting off topic though, but as for your topic title, some people react bad to some types of anxiety meds and they actually INCREASE anxiety more! sucks! This is what sucks about this, anxiety studies are fairly new, cause doctors back then didn't really take it as a serious illness. I hate the fact of having to try all these meds to find what works, maybe one day they can just take a blood sample and know by studying it what type of med woud work for us.
Have you ever tried a MAOI? Might be a problem thought with your other conditions, and i'm not sure how much doctors like prescribing them.
