Feedback on Rachel Ramos Triad Technique For Anxiety
Has anyone ever heard of this or had any positive results with it? I am just now starting to realize that I have a MAJOR anxiety problem that is taking over my life but I am scared to death to take the medication my doctor prescribed. Any thoughts about this program?
I was horrified at the thought of taking meds buut ill just go on and tell ya... its the best thing i ever did for myself because i dont ever ever want to feel the way i did the day I went in to the ER thinking I was dying, and for the docotrs to tell me nothing was wrong and to go home and relax! Continued my week before making an appointment with my family physician and he smiled real big and said your not dying its just panic disorder, didnt find it to be humorous at all but at that point i was running on about 10hours total of sleep by the end of that week and was WORE out! Then when i got my meds he gave me something for migrains/insomnia a pill that helps for several different things, Xanax, and Fluoxitine which is prozac, nevertheless i started taking the meds wrong and i was really a mess then, took the insomnia meds during the day and the fluoxitine at night, well fluoxitine can cause insomnia so i was backwards and even more messed up then when i started!! But as soon as i got back on track i started to notice a difference immediately in how I felt and didnt even have to take the Xanax i was prescribed! When i did have a bit of panic/anxiety it was over just as fast as it started, however whe i get to be on overload i might have a panic attack but again it doesnt last long! So do consider taking meds cause my life wouldnt be the same with out mine! And always remember it takes 3-6 weeks for some before the drug takes effect and starts really working well for you, also some anti depressants may not work for you but you just have to keep at it till you find one that does!
I read the other persons reply, PLEASE!! Do not Go Near ANY BENZO's Meds, out of the cries of Many, that wish the day they could All take it back and Never had taken a Benzo, like Xanax, and Prozac, is terrible as well, It is Fine in the beginning, but it doesnt take long before the worst begins, which is trying to not take xanax, all it takes is a few weeks for a tolerance/a now considered a dependant medication. Prozac and xanax well make you Worse in the long run, Please Talk to a dr Before taking any medicine, beware of those dr. that say benzo's are non habit forming, b/c they are! I still think speaking to a therpost(mispelled) and dealing with the Root of the problem on why you are having panick attack and excerise on how to regain control naturally is the best method.
Run! Don't walk away from Klonopin which is a horribly addictive drug. There are literally thousands of letters on the Internet, (including mine!) describing the horrors of this drug which can actually CAUSE panic attacks! I had mild anxiety when prescribed this pill but I did not have panic attacks! Now I wake up every morning in excruciating anxiety (and this is AFTER I have been off the medicine more than ten months!) It took me more than four months of hellish withdrawal to taper off of the drug and I am still so sick from it that I cannot work, am on disability, wake up shaking, heart pounding, anytime I sleep, whether it's nighttime sleep, or if i even just drift off in a chair for 5 minutes! I repeat, the withdrawal was horrible with vomiting, heart palpitations that sent me to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack, violent panic attacks that had me throwing my body onto the floor! And no doctor can tell me when this is going to end! Run for your life! God bless you! PS> My Psychologist is an ex-cocaine addict and he says it's almost as hard to get off of Klonopin as to get off of cocaine! Pfizer that makes most anti-anxiety drugs especially benzo drugs has publicly stated: "All anti-anxiety drugs can cause a paradoxical effect." In other words, they can cause the exact opposite of the effect you are seeking by actually causing and/or increasing your anxiety and panic attacks!
You are so right. No meds for sure. My daughter suffers from anxiety and have heard many good things about Rachel Ramos "Cool Calm and Collected Video. I find it very interesting so I wanted to share this with whoever suffers from anxiety. I hope you check out her video and I hope this helps you :)
The Triad technique is justy Panic Away with new branding. Basically they just stole the thing and rebranded it. If you go to the site and take the test as a woman, it will say the Triad Technique is ONLY for women. Go back and take the test as a man and a man comes on and says it's ONLY for men. How can the same thing be ONLY for women AND men? Makes no sense. The Calm Clinic refers to a made-up organization to help give weight to its claims. And seriously folks, anything that starts popping up in the top 3 spots on Google just out of nowhere for all anxiety-related searches -- you have to start using your head and realizing they PAID for those spots. It's all a huge scam. Don't waste your time or money on these immoral hucksters. They don't care if you're suffering, they just want to make money off your pain.
Well I have the Lucinda Basset program and it has a lot of good information on it... after 6 months of dealing with this anxiety I am planning a trip to the Dr to get on meds. I have Klonapin and Ativan but they both just make me tired so I don't take them... I am only on cd 4 of the Lucinda Program and they have 15 sessions but I really think I will need meds to get thru this but everyone is different!! Just bcus one person has a bad experience with a med don't mean you will!!
Hello, do you have any physical pain ie: neck, shoulder pain, headache?
I have panic/anxiety attack from out of the blue. Done all kinda of test and all come clear. ER doc gave me Lorazapham at ER and it help. I took is only couple times when at the beginning I was very tense. After 2 weeks, I tried to stop taking it and started to have neck pain, headache, numbness on my left arm... Then I started to see physio and acupuncture... Just started pain still here however I am more relax now.
It could be my c2/3 clog and gave me anxiety. Do some research online and u will find more info.
I will try to do the best to stay away from med :)
I don't agree. I person with a real panic disorder won't get addicted to Ativan or Klonopin. I have been on them for years and can stop at anytime. In fact i have stopped when i took another Non Narcotic medication that took the anxiety away. The only reason i am back on the klonopin is because after taking the other medication for 2 years it stopped working. When i find another one i will stop the klonopin because i have a REAL PANIC DISORDER and i don't get addicted to klonopin. Only drug addicts will get addicted. Now xanax is a different story.
Prozac literally saved my life. I was so frustrated and confused I was ready to end everything. Fortunately, I decided to try one last thing, before going through with it. That one last thing was Prozac, and now here I am 24 years later and feeling better than I ever did before I took it. Yes, I still take it, and I will take it for the rest of my life; but so what? I'm still here to take it, which is a good thing. If I were diabetic, should I take insulin every day? Yes. Would I die if I didn't take insulin? Yes. So in my case, my brain doesn't make adequate amounts of serotonin; it doesn't function properly. Should I take Prozac every day to make my brain work? Yes, of course.
