Those not on meds

Can anybody tell me if they are NOT on any meds and dealing with this ****. I refuse to take anything for the anxiety bull but really close to starting. Was prescribed CELEXA any comments on this medication? Good or Bad.

I tried for 6 months to stay off meds.  Took a lot of amino acids  (5htp, L-thianine, Sam-e) and "managed" it ok-ish but there were plenty of bad days in between.  I'm on Zoloft now and doing fairly well but it hasn't even been 2 weeks yet.

yup been basicly off meds for a year now. but i do take xanax .125 mg when i have a really huge panic attack..but thats only like once every 2 or 3 months. other than that i manage the anxiety by riding it out and gettin plenty of vitamin bcomplex. my experience with celexa..took one pill and had the biggest panic attack ever..lasted 2 weeks..this wasnt generalized anxiety for two weeks it was a full blown panic attack..i would go with a benzo over an antidepressant even if u r depressed. The depression usually is caused by the anxiety..

Geeez! Well that's that. I guess I won't be try Celexa! I actually just started taking Vitamin B Complex today. My doc recommended that I take it 3x a day. Do you feel a difference with it?
