| | Anti anxiety meds with the least side effects
I'm pretty much at my wits end... I have great days and then terrible days with anxiety and ocd and today is one of the terrible ones :-( I just had to take .5mg of Xanax because I was feeling so awful all day. Anxiety that kept coming and going, but would never really leave. Anyway, I'm thinking that I need to be on a daily anti anxiety medicine, but I'm so nervous about going on one because of the side effects. I've been on soooo many before and they never work or I don't give them a chance to work because I feel so terrible on them. The only one I ever had good luck with was brand specific Zoloft. When I tried the generic one it wasn't good at all.
My main concerns are weight gain, nervousness and being jittery, and mood swings.
I have anxiety really bad and ocd really bad, but I don't know if one is causing the other. Any tips on what kinds of meds I should try would be really really appreciated. I can't deal with this all the time anymore, it's taking over my life and I need to find something that works. Thanks everyone :-)
