i think the problem would be best handled head on. i would take anti-anxiety medication like xanax or klonopin. i took prozac 60mg didn't do anything, i took celexa 60mg didn't do anything. im on zoloft 100mg now and still nothing. i know i've been on a lot of different medications, but thats what happens when you get involved with psychiatrists. good luck.
I am able to live with my attacks (which can get really bad at times) and I actually have a fear of taking meds. I think the only thing I will take is a child's dose of tylenol only when I have a fever or migrane. I have discovered that taking Vitamin B Complex capsules have helped reduce my stress and anxiety levels. Also, I still love taking Flinstone vitamins, on top of the vit B complex. I feel great when I don't miss out in taking one a day. I think I would rather deal with my symptoms than the side effects of meds too. I used to take Zoloft and Prozac and Klonopin. Seperate time periods, but I didn't like the unreal feeling they made me feel like and the stomach cramps from them.
My dosage for Prozac is only 10mg. I doubt it will do much of anything then. I have Xanax here, but only use them in times of real panic. I know they are very addictive, and that scares me. They help tremendously, but I am wary to take them.
VindictiveBunny, thanks for the tip about vitamins and vitamin B complex. Maybe I will look into that.
I had to stop taking the Prozac. It was killing my stomach. I couldn't stand it any longer. If I have to choose between anxiety or being sick to my stomach all day, I choose anxiety.
