I'm new I'm 34 year old male and was prescribed celexa 10mg a month again and have not taken it because I'm scared of the side effects. Ibe had anxiety for the last couple days and last night was the worst. I close my eyes and its in fast forward can't shut my mind off. Help should I take it or is there something naturally I can take to calm me down
Thanks for ur responses. I've been doing natural 250 mg of magnesium and a daily vitamin. Been reading on other stuff that is natural as well. I wanna find a good sleep aid something natural. To help me fall asleep faster. I work from 11-9 pm so it's hard to wind down after work. I still haven't touched the celexa 10mg but it has crossed my mind several times. I haven't had a drink since NOVEMBER OF 2015 and because I do t drink I don't smoke either. Talking with other people like u really help with the anxiety cause it lets me know I'm not alone. Thanks again for ur responses and I'll will definitely K.I.T with what I've been using naturally or if I went the medication way either way I hope all the new ways we try really help us out and get past this so we can have normal lives again. God Bless
I would say the anxiety is crippling, my wife says I'm not functioning. I have been to the doctor several times and had blood tests galore. Not just night sweats, almost constant anxiety all day long, worried about dying of something the doctors are missing got not finding fast enough. And I have a long history of anxiety issues, just never been this bad before.
You say what "seems" to be constant anxiety. I agree, you don't sound like the typical anxiety sufferer from the little you've posted here. Everyone with health problems gets anxious about it, but that's not a mental problem, that's life. Anxiety as a mental disorder involves chronic anxiety that is irrational and seems to have arisen from nowhere. If it arises from somewhere known, that's a different kettle of fish unless it's diagnosed as PTSD, which you don't have. So if you don't have an anxiety problem, the night sweats are being caused by something else. If you do, you should have a lot of anxiety -- irrational fear -- and not just night sweats. Night sweats are also a possible side effect of most antidepressants, and taking benzos for a problem that isn't anxiety is taking an addictive drug for no useful purpose. Maybe there's more to this story, but if I were only suffering from night sweats and not constant crippling irrational fears I would be looking for the physiological cause or dealing with it somehow, not getting involved with the very complicated drugs used for people who have no visible alternative to get on with their lives. And if it is anxiety, but your life is otherwise liveable, therapy is a place to start. Have you ever had your hormone levels tested over a period of time, meaning not just once?
More to fill in the gaps. I've felt I've had anxiety for sometime is started after drinking on the weekends and having the hangovers in fear I was gonna die. I haven't drank since November of 2015 nor do I smoke. Every now and then it will be there. I think to much, fears bad thoughts. I started going to church and praying about it. I just want to feel normal again. I'm a father of four kids and want to be in the lives and function normally! Will celexa 10mg be good for me and will it take away the anxiety and bad thoughts and help me live a happy and normal life. Again I'm very new to this stuff so please help me out. I've read tons of blogs and postings about this and some are scary and some are a breathe of fresh air. Please help!!!
Track your symptoms, write them down, and give your doctor a call to let them know about the night sweats. It's important you communicate with them about side effects you're having so your current treatment plan can be reviewed and evaluated. Talking with your doctor is the best way to understand what your other treatment and/or medication options are. It's also possible that they may want to send you for physical tests to rule out any underlying physical causes for the night sweats, so ask about that too.
I read up a little on the adaptogens. Does it give u insomnia? I'm not really loosing sleep it's just hard for me to go to sleep because the bad thoughts and the constant mind racing that anxiety gives me. I wanna be a ale to go home wind down water the grass but before I start that on the way home take something that way after I do all that I can climb in bed and crash out. I know there's gonna be a lot of trail and error with these things. But I'd rather know what to go to straight off the bat.
Well I can honestly say I've cut out caffeine all together just recently I try not to drink coffee either. You have put my mind at ease I can say for now. I purchased NATURAL CARE SLEEP FIX FROM WALGREENS and also gonna purchase the adaptogen vegetarian capsule it's called imperial adaptogen the ultimate tonic supplement. Also through my insurance I'm gonna do Acupuncture. And try that. I'm totally for the natural way as well. My sister was on Ativan and still had crazy anxiety. I don't want that. I'm getting active and have a gym membership with my wife and she's totally on the page of helping me out and trying to understand and help me. Again thank you!!
One more question what do u think about the already magnesium 250 mg and daily vitamin I've been taking and adding the adaptogen with it?? Overdoing?? Or wouldn't hurt??
What a good MG to start with for the adaptogen? Have u heard of the Ron teeguardens dragon herb super adaptogens?
And it's magnesium oxide which I know now is the hardest to absorb.
